The DX44HP is the updated version of the older DX44V. The biggest advantage to the new version is that they've doubled the power output. The 44HP now boasts 40+ watts modulation and 2-15 watts deadkey.
Like most newer radios they've also switched out all the green LED's and lights to blue. You also get a dimmer control so you can turn down the lights so they're not so hard on the eyes at night. They also cone with a built-in SWR meter so you can make sure your antenna system is tuned in. All in all, an excellent radio for not a lot of dough.
Thanks for the help. I had a lot of questions because I built my headache rack with one of the major purposes being to mount my antenna on it. This rack was mostly designed and built at the same time, so I built, then redesigned, etc, to see what worked and what wouldn't. Today was a case in point. Thanks for helping me in my "designing" and ensuring I got what would work, saving me from some frustration later on.-- SOLER S.

Oh, you are so sweet!!!!!! We can use it for the weekend if it arrives in time. Thank you! That is very kind of you! I almost went with another online site for the same product just because they were $20 cheaper but I felt you guys would provide better service and you already have!!! Nice to know there is a really person at the other end! Thanks again!-- Beverly J.
