By now I am sure many of you have heard of the Xiegu G90. This amazing HF radio has so many features, you would expect it to be priced three times what we are currently selling it for. First let me show you what some of our customers think of it.
Here are some of the features
Pressing the Tune key brings up the following display and the radio at this point is engaging the automatic antenna tuner.
The radio has the ability to look at SWR over a range of frequencies. Here is an example of the SWR display.
The radio has a built in spectrum analyzer. The display below shows a typical AM signal that was modulated at 3 KHz with a modulation index of 50%. Note the carrier and the two side bands.
The display below shows a typical SSB signal that was modulated at 3 KHz with a modulation index of 50%. Note the suppressed carrier and only a single side band.
- 1 to 20 Watts output in 1 Watt increments
- Receiver sensitivity less than .1 microvolt
- AM, USB, LSB, and CW modes
- Covers all HAM bands between 160 Meters and 10 meters.
- Built in CW Decoder
- Waterfall display
- Detachable Display Unit
- CW filters as low as 50 Hz
- SDR architecture
- Free Firmware updates for new features
This is an unbelievable radio for its price. This radio has features far and beyond any radio in its price range. To make a complete radio system, just add power supply, coax cable, and an antenna, and you are on the air.

This is not the radio I got. I bought a X5105
What a great little radio! The display, including the waterfall in particular, is beautiful: clear, colorful and easy to read. Filter controls appear effective. I'm just starting to scratch the surface of this very capable radio, but look forward to exploring all of its features in depth.
The radio is just what I wanted. But its a little hard to understand how to operate it. Also the radio should come with the cat program so u dont have to hunt it all down.. and end up trying this and that.. the raido should have a usb or a serial port on the back . To make it easier to program also u should not have to program the head and the body separately. Other then that I like it.
Love the receiver in this radio
I've only had the G90 for a week. So far, I'm pretty impressed. It arrived with firmware version 1.74, which has a well known glitch regarding frequency step size by pressing the tuning knob. Upgrading to firmware version 1.75 solved this problem. There is definitely a learning curve, as is pretty normal with any modern rig. The display is small, but bright and sharp. Very easy to read, even at my age. No cheap plastic housing... Solid steel/aluminum construction. I'll likely have to wait until spring to give it a workout in the field. If, like me, you're not a big time QRP operator, you will really appreciate the 20 watt power output. My only complaint regarding operational capability is the fixed SSB transmit bandwidth of 2.4Khz. Would be nice to be able to open it up to 2.8 or even 3Khz. My guess is that may be addressed in a future firmware release. One other shortcoming is there is no built-in mechanical tilt up function. Not a problem in the shack where the G90 sits on a shelf at eye level, but a bit of a pain in the field. Otherwise this rig is feature packed, with plenty of bells and whistles. Capabilities that are well beyond what one might expect at this price point. I'm still learning and having fun. Isn't that really what it's all about?... W1AIU
Unbelievable radio for the price. Many features you would only find in a much higher priced radio. Like antenna tuner, antenna analyzer and code reader. Connect Systems was great with fast service.
The order handling and shipping was done very quickly. The unit actually arrived a couple of days ahead of schedule after traveling across the country. It arrived in good shape and operates as advertised. Other than the manual being typical Chinese crapola and 1 or 2 pet peeves that might be addressed in future software updates I like the radio and consider it a top value for the price. I appreciate the free shipping without the normal pricing gimmick of advertising a low price only to see that it is raised considerably to the competitors up front pricing with the shipping charges. Well done. Will definitely keep your company on my list of preferred businesses.
Not having and unlimited budget, I thought I would have to start out with a low end radio. When I saw I could get SDR and a waterfall display as well as full HF coverage and an antenna tuner / analyzer in a package for under $500 I had to try it out. It's true the radio is tiny but who needs a giant box taking up their whole desk anyway? This way I can take it in the car if I want to go mobile as well as taking it on field days. the radio works great and I made two DX contacts on my first day using a homemade 10 m dipole at the low point in the sunspot cycle. It's simple to use and I would recommend it to anyone as long as the small size is not a problem. Getting the radio from a US-based company for the service and support is something I'm really happy about and shipping was very fast. Thanks CSI!
For the price, this radio has many features of those selling for $1000....only wish it had more power.
For the money, and BTW Connect Systems is best sales I've experienced in a long time, This is my 2nd G90 because I sold the first one because the screen was smaller than I could easily see. But I bought a second one after missing it. K2GK
works great....nice price...great waterfall and super tuner
This is my 2nd G90, I had on a few months ago, the I missed it, waited until the price was right to buy it again. I like the form factor, 20watts is perfect for digital. I would recommend to a friend.
