It could have been a great radio. I really liked it. It has everything you want in a portable QRP radio.
Ease of use, nice audio, programmable filters, build like a tank and more (that is why after
it failed I gave it another try,returned it and tried a second one). On the first one the 'dah' on the paddle
didn't work.
On the second one it worked for maybe 10 minutes. It started with sending 'dahs' on the 'dit' side.
Same problem. I think that it doesn't have any protection in the keyer line.
I have ferrite clamps on every cables, power, mike, key and speaker. This is really my only complain
unfortunately a decisive one.
My LNR LD-5, my FDM-DUO and my X108G are working fine in the same setup.
Really too bad, I really loved the radio.
Otherwise I would have given a 5.
