Just starting out (Ultimate3S)

When I got my ticket in Nov, I had grand visions of a nice table top HF rig and talking around the world. Due to some unforeseen medical bills, my cash stash was completely and totally depleted :(

I just discovered WSPR last week and stumbled upon the Ultimate3S. Seems like the perfect solution for someone that is cash and (antenna) space strapped!

If I understand correctly, with the UltimateS3, I pretty much only need the unit itself, a small power supply, and even something as simple as a space constricted antenna. I assume, I would still need a tuner or an antenna cut to the exact freq I choose? Am I missing something or is it really all that simple?

Thanks in advance!
