Great QRP SSB rig!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I've had the Patriot for several months and having a great time with it. The receiver is very quiet and transmitted audio reports are always positive. The best part about this radio however, is the ability to program it the way you see fit. Don't like the tuning rate? Change it. Want to add a display? Go for it, connections are already there. Want to restrict the band edges to only what your license allows? Not a problem. The Patriot Yahoo! groups is very helpful and with several members posting their customizations. Well done TenTec, another keeper.
