Works as advertised  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The tune control is way too sensitive.
A few degrees of rotation away from peak gain location (if you can find it) looses 4-6db of gain.
Really needs a vernier or secondary fine tune control.

Manual only specifies 12V with no range. Most rigs use 13.6-14.3 V. Haven't tried it at these voltages. No internal voltage regulator.

Nice for pulling out the weak ones...  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Would have given it a 5, but 1st one was faulty.
That said MFJ took care of it w/o a hitch, even paid shipping both ways!!!
Does what it says, receive & transmit with no special hookups, just key your mic & talk....

Picture in link is NOT the 1040C ..picture is reviews is correct!!!!
