President Lincoln Mk2 (V3) - 2 year warranty period

Not only has the price of this 10m transceiver dropped to £199, but John Gordon of Nevada has confirmed that the warranty period on these transceivers is 2 years. I am seriously tempted.

I owned the Mk1 version and worked all over the world with it, including a VU on SSB whilst moving in the car around Cambridge.

Tempted? As my old dad said. "If you have an itch, scratch it".

I had an itch to have an Argonaut 509 again. Just did!

What do think about i use my MK1 on psk 31 or outher digital modes ?

Roger G3XBM said...

When I owned a Mk1 Lincoln it was never tried on digital modes - it mainly was used on USB, AM and FM modes.

I suspect my Mk2 will be mainly used on speech modes when my voice is better. I suspect the claimed drift may make it marginal for digital modes?

Do you think i should no try to make some transmitions tests ?

Pedro, you have nothing to lose, although I suggest you let the rig stabilise its frequency first. Maybe leave it on RX for 30-40 minutes before attempting TX?

Tks for the tips Roger.
