By Andrew Barron, ZL3DW
Not everyone is aware of the Xeigu X6100 but this Chinese-manufactured QRP radio is surprisingly well featured and extremely capable. Andrew Barron, ZL3DW again brings you the practical guide to getting the most out this radio.
In common with all the other books in this Radio Today series the radiotoday guide to the Xeigu X6100 is not simply a rehash of the User Manual. This is a 'how to do it' book which describes how to set up and use the transceiver, including the undocumented features like the CW, PSK, and RTTY decoder. Andrew provides a few tips on how he configured his own radio which you don't have to follow but does provide helpful guidance particularly to the many features that are not included in the sales information or the supplied manual.
The Xeigu X6100 is a full Software Defined Radio (SDR). The receiver is a QSD (quadrature sampling detector) design with a QSE (quadrature sampling exciter) in the transmitter which is similar to the excellent Elecraft KX3 SDR. The book provides information on a huge array of functionality, physical features, connections, interfaces and more alongside the incredibly useful troubleshooting guide. From the full-colour 4" display to the rear panel connectors, Andrew provides the answers.
If you own a Xeigu X6100, or are just investigating what they have to offer before buying one, the radiotoday guide to the Xeigu X6100 provides a highly-illuminating guide. These are great radios and Andrew provides insight into its wide array of features and no owner or potential buyer should be without a copy.
