Built Strong.  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I use this particular model for my commercial two way radio service mobile installations and it works very well, I bought mine at HRO for $110.95 I think so. You can't beat it for that price, also check out the other models MFJ has for different frequency ranges. Bottom line good deal at a good price, 73's from HR land.
