Great Repeater With Great Audio !!!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I purchased My R1 UHF Repeater on Ebay...
Had it shipped to Maggiore to have the Frequency Crystals changed and a few other goodies added...
Received the repeater and it's worked Flawlessly....
I've had really good compliments on the repeater's audio... Very Clean.. Very Punchy.. Very Real..
I had just recently had to send the repeater back to Maggiore as I had to change Frequencies and Dee is Great to deal with...
I have my R1 on a Link Communications RLC-3 Repeater Controller ...
If you ever want a reliable repeater with Great After Sales Service the Hi Pro R1 from Maggiore Electronic Lab is Worth Looking into !!!!!!

Works Great  Time owned: more than 12 months
The MN- ARC has been operating 3 of the R -1 repeaters on VHF and UHF for over 10 years.
They have been Great ! The units are very reliable and service is excellent. We have run the R- 1 repeaters for years and they are a pleasure to operate. They have served us well for many many years.

Never Fails  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have a 220mhz R1. It has been on the air for 5 years without a single burp! I am using the CAT300 controller and running 25 watts. Killer construction! If you need a new repeater and dont want a modified type get this!!!

Perfect  Time owned: more than 12 months
Our club (WT4RA) has used the VHF R1 repeater since 1995. It has been a fantastic piece of equipment. The family business (Paul and the late Frank) have given superb support at all times and in all ways. The price value is great. We ordered it with some extras and custom wiring - it went great. The repeat audio is as natural as you can get. The receiver is VERY hot and stands up fine in our high RF environment. We paired it up with a CAT1000 controller.
