Here is a quick side by side comparison of the ID-51 Icom Dstar Radio next to it’s predecessor ID-31a as well as a surprise appearance from the 92-ad. I am very happy with the ID-51 at this point and really like the programing as well as the other features it has. The size is just a little bigger than the ID-31a and in my opinion worth the extra price. I want to do a more indepth review with some deeper audio testing as well as side by side programming options. I have found a few things it does better than the 31a in programming ability and I wanted to point those out.
This video was done with a Canon 5D Mark II for those that would like to know and the internal microphone only was used as my external mic’s battery was dead. I will get a new 9V for the audio testing of course as I want to make sure it’s a valid and as scientific test as possible.
As always I would love your feedback on the video and don’t forget to like and subscribe it to help me out. I will be happy to test or post something specific if there are questions but at this time I’m going off of the simple things I had time for this morning. I had to go rake leaves and clean the driveway so my time was limited. Also I had heard the UPS truck and was hoping it could be my new Elecraft K3 which I can’t wait to build!!!
Please give me ideas and I will ensure to get to them!!! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and keep coming back!
