Does the Xiegu X6100 overheat?

In this video I take the Xiegu X6100 up a SOTA summit for the 3rd time (Dixie Benchmark W7A/MN-131). On the 2nd outing, the radio got extremely hot while operating. I wasn’t sure if this was just from sun exposure or something within the radio. So I decided to eliminate the sun as a factor on this Summits on the Air activation. There were a couple of surprises along the trail too – you never know what you will encounter when you get out and activate portable.

Thank you to Radioddity for lending me the X6100!
