Not Mighty Fine Junk But a GEM!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had this TNC since 2006 when I bought it at a swap meet and it came in the original box with software in used condition. After purchase, it sat in my junk pile until 2014 when I tried it out and found all to be in working order.

Back to the junk box it went until March 2015. I wanted to use it for my BPQ32 node but it kept going into a T/R cycle. A rap on the case would clear the problem for a few minutes before reappearing.

I took out the circuit board and performed a "poor man's reflow" with a heat gun. Sure enough, the reflow made it steady as a rock again.

This equipment reminds me of a time when MFJ got it right. This old box is still plugging away since 1996.
