The Sienna is finally on the air

I got the Sienna on the air last Monday.  I am still waiting on the 100w amp and the embeded PC, but we have been hitting PSK hard all week.

I have made a little over 20 contacts with it since.  Great performer and a fun project to build.  I plan on taking it camping as soon as I get the embeded PC put in.  That way I only have to take the Sienna, a monitor, keyboard and mouse with me.

You can take a look at the build at http://w0wwv.org/index.php/board,21.0.html

So if you want to see what it sounds like at least on PSK you can usually find me at 14.070.  Contact me if you want to try a SSB contact.

  • Allen,

    The radio looks very nice, with a retro-style glow about it.

    How are you finding its performance compared to other rigs?

  • It’s great. The only other modern rig I have is a IC-746Pro. The Sienna is as good or better then it. The receiver is really hot.

    I find the front panel easier to use. Don’t get me wrong, I like the Icom, but i prefer the Sienna. I have made about 30 PSK contacts on 10w this week.

    I would recommend it to anyone.
