Easy to use , good performance  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought mine from HRO , cut me a simple dipole and im on the air . my dr-03t does 14-15 watts or so it shows on my watt meters . everyone I have talked with says I sound great . I have made about 20 contacts so far and very satisfied .almost everyday I make a contact. if you are looking just to have a mono band for home or mobile this is it . the main repeaters are 29.620,29.640 ,29.660 but most my contacts were on the calling freq. regards

decent performance  Time owned: 0 to 3 months

Ten Meters is open almost daily!

Bought this radio on special for $149.

Arrived in good condition, works well, but state of tune can be improved. S-meter showed full deflection on all incoming signals no matter how weak. There is a micro-pot labeled SMT that will cure this. The FM deviation was weak, there is also a pot for this adjustment.

Also, the high power setting can be almost doubled to nearly 20 watts.

There are mods on MODS.DK for extending transmit range.

RX range can be extended by simply turning on the radio with the MHZ button pressed.

First two contacts were thru New York repeaters from Texas to Cuba and Colorado.

Enjoyable sunspot radio.
