Flexradio says the Maestro manufacturing has been held up for several months due to a shortage of parts caused by Covid-19. This unit was snatched up from the QRZ.com online swapmeet and it’s a beauty.
Shown above in it’s travelling mode. All it needs is a wifi connection. It has an internal battery that will run quite a few hours. Portable operation gets a lot simpler with this device. A mic or a paddle is all it needs to get on the air. Back at the shack it looks equally at home with a paddle and a microphone.
The Maestro is an option that is not essential because all operations can be done with a pc or a laptop alone but this is for those of us who still like knobs. The knobs on the Maestro have an expensive-radio feel. It’s a pleasure to operate with this option.
