# Where can I go for ham radio reviews? [closed]

I was wondering what would be the best startup HF transceiver for the 3-30 MHz band. I have not found any which appear to match my requirements for under $200. What would some ham radio sites be with professional answers where I could find what I am looking for? • This question asks for recommendations for specific products, services, software, or electronic designs, which are off-topic as they attract opinionated rather than comprehensive answers. Please consider rephrasing your question in terms of what you should be looking for given your use case or whether a specific product has the capability you need.

If you are looking for HF and not wanting to go Chinese QRP. There are some options - they are in reverse order i.e. the best is last.... # 3rd Place New: • Home Brew QRP. Under$200 very easy to do.

As you will be a new radio user, I would suggest QRP is something you try a little later. But you may have no space, are only planning on using the radio in the outdoors/from the top of a mountain.

# 2nd Place Used:

This is the most initially affordable place to look.

What rig to buy ? Have a look on eHam.net - and see what the general reviews are like.

QRZ.com has a good used equipment section - very US/Canada focused.
