Yesterday, when I wrote to tell you about the radio, there was really nothing happening on 40 meters. Today there is a contest going on and I've just got to say that this is the most incredible rig I've ever
Since starting out about 7 years ago, I've owned an MFJ-9200, an Alinco DX-SR9, an Icom IC-718 and a Xiegu G1M, in that order. All of these radios pale in comparison to the ME40+. To me a transceiver is all about reception. Your little rig has got the best reception by far of anything I've ever experienced. IT'S SO QUIET! There's no white noise to be heard at all.
I have all of my rigs on a single antenna switch (now including yours) running to the same single attic dipole cut resonant (1.3 SWR) to 40 meters. When I have any of my other rigs not selected to the antenna, they all still produce white noise. When I have the ME40+ off the antenna, it's dead quiet. It only makes light static when selected, but otherwise you don't even know it's on.
Last month I bought the [XXX] DSP filter for a hundred bucks to see if I can quiet down the MFJ and the Xiegu. What a waste of money. Those things don't work. All they do is muffle everything. Your ME40+ sounds as though it has a DSP filter built in, but one that actually works.
