A letter from Ed Pennington, K3YTR about his SG-2020
"I have had my SG-2020 for 3 years and 5 months and love it. Had the ADSP1 put in soon after it was released and found it to be one of the best mods I have ever had. I have been a Ham since 1963 and have seen and had many rigs. I got my 2020 back from the ADSP2 mod just in time for Field Day. We were running A2, the person that was bringing the HF rig did not show.
I brought my 2020 as a back up rig and had planned to put it on and see how it would work against all the big rigs. So it was put to work that first day. I found I could work any one I could hear. Since we were not out to make the most points, just testing emergency radios, we stopped for some sleep at Midnight and got started the next morning around 7 AM. One of our members arrived with a 100 W HF rig and that replaced the 2020. Most of the morning was spent trying to figure out all the menus for DSP and IF filters.
All in all, we made about 80% of our contacts on the 2020. Before the Field Day was over the 2020 was back on because it was a lot easier to work with. I love the SG2020 and it gets a lot of use between my car and home. It always amazes me that it works on 80M Splits with England that I get as good reports as my fellow 500 to 1000 Watter friends.
Keep up the great work with a great little radio. I am retired after 35 years from AT&T Microwave radio Long Lines. As said I love my 2020 and even though money is a little tight now, someday I will have a second SG-2020."
