Best of the series.  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Overall the performance of this receiver is the best of any HQ-1xx series receiver I have ever owned. The radio has very consistent sensitivity across all the bands. The performance on 6m and 2m is spot on. I do operate AM on 6m and 2m, which is fairly active in the New York City area where I live, and this receiver has blended into that operation perfectly. It's SSB performance is totally acceptable as well, since it is inherently more stable than previous variants; along with the tighter tolerance components I added to the oscillator. It even manages fairly good performance tuning in FM by using a slope tuning approach.

Many people malign these receivers mostly because they lack the knowledge of how to use them properly. SSB reception is fine; if you understand that you must use the sensitivity knob for volume, and the Q-multiplier and CW tune all together to properly detect a SSB signal with no distortion. If you know how to use it properly, this little receiver can do it all.
