Another QRP compact HF radio!

There has been a spate of new QRP radios coming on the market over the last few years, with the Elecraft KX2 and KX3, and the new Icom IC-705 at the top of the pile in terms of features. Now there is another one, the Discovery TX-500, from 599Labs. We don’t know anything about this company, their website only showcases their new HF/6m compact SDR. Available from Ham Radio Outlet (US) at $790 USD.
