An old workhorse radio  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought this on sale in a RS store probably 15 years ago. Took it home, plugged it in and started programming local frequencies. In that time this thing has rarely ever been turned off. In my current shack it's been running 24/7 for the last 7 years. Not a single problem or issue.

Some may ask, why bother with the old analog stuff? Well I can monitor all the aircraft frequencies, ham frequencies and since I live next to a Union Pacific Rail line, the railroad freq's. Even though my local county fire has gone to digital operations, they still use the old frequencies for paging and dispatch.

I wish all of my electronics were as durable as this one.
