Good rig 40 years ago  Time owned: more than 12 months
Long ago this was a good radio. Today, not so much. The fixed 25 KHz IF bandwidth is too wide for the close 15 KHz channel spacing these days. I had one that when listening to 146.88, you could hear a repeater on 146.895 just as clear as day.

Good Rig  Time owned: more than 12 months
I had one of these in the mid-70s. A simple, very reliable rig with 1W or 15W power output. I recently picked up one of these at a hamfest for $20 just for nostalgia purposes. Works good on recieve so I'll use it as a station monitor since it doesn't have repeater tones.
