I like the little rig  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought my DJ-S11 (used) about 2 years ago. It has all the necessary features for toting at a Hamfest or local repeater usage. I modified mine by removing the telescoping whip and replacing it with a right angle chassis mount connector and a rubber duck. That also allows me to connect it to my 5 element Yagi. The latter configuration lets me work into distant repeaters.

Very cool small radio  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
A cool little radio with quite good range. I live about a mile from the Rier Humber, East Yorkshire, UK and i can hear all the ships and the coast guard fine... Great price too. A must.

Cheap! compact! fun!  Time owned: months
Well made. supercompact, and it uses plain ole AA batteries. It has relative low power, and will hit the local repeater but not distance machines.

I did however hit a repeater 30 miles away standing on top of an office building.

It has great audio.

The only downside is the "flip" telescoping antenna. but other than that, it is a grea little radio, just don't expect too much from the 1/3W that it will put out on rechargable batteries.

Great radio for the money  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This radio was purchased for in the city repeater use
and short range simplex. Powered by three AA cells,
has charger circuit for ni-cads. Short, easily understood instructions. Easy to program. Has 20 memory channels. Good range for a .6 watt output.
Audio quality reported to be good both transmitting and receiving. Short flip-up telescoping antenna could be improved, but still does the job well. Has
double jacks for plug-in mike/speaker. This radio has better range and more versatility than would be expected for a unit in its size and price range.
