Promised HF-6m Discovery TX-500 looks interesting

Just spotted this teaser for a new amateur transceiver. A very compact and rugged design with two surface mount boards and built-in antenna tuner.

I'm not sure about the choice of connectors but I guess they're going for a rugged water resistant exterior.

Personally I'd love to see something along these lines with a single USB port carrying control, audio and IQ but in a way that it can be used standalone or with a computer if available.

No idea on price or performance but from the video it seems to sound pretty good and the display looks excellent.

Like everyone else in the world, I'm waiting for the QRP-Labs QSX.
