Nice fun little radio  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
This is just a fun little radio. Compact, great tx/rx and an easy build. I'm not a kit builder by any means, but a 2 year old could put it together. Only issue I had was getting to solder to stick to the display leads - easy work around. If someone is looking for a three band radio that has a digital display and vfo knob, for 150.00 this is it.

Great value, easy to build/use  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought kit from Vibroplex. Other vendors are available. Instructions a bit thin. Resistor and a couple of screws missing, but had them on hand. Build time about 4 hours, including testing. Excellent radio, lots of contacts. Solid 5 watts out. Probably not for first time builder -- instructions sparse, but photos show the important things. Board is a little tight to work on, but soldered easily. Has DDS and memories, quite stable.
