    Yes it is easily modified....All the Galaxy radios are. They may be labeled 10M radios but that isn't what they are built for. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I don't know about a price but I know it's "little brother" the 93T runs about $429.00 /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    My favorite is still the RCI 2950/2970 radios. I never heard or had a better radio for SSB in that price range.

    Well...10 meters will be pretty worthless in the next couple of years anyways /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
    I did, however, work TO4E on Juan de Nove/Europa Island over the weekend on 10SSB for country #327 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've seen them, but I've had Galaxy radio's for years. It's kinda a brand loyalty thing.
