Never worked  Time owned: more than 12 months
I too purchased one from MFJ. Mine never worked either. I sent them an email and they implicated that somehow I didn't know what I was doing and generally refused to consider that the product was defective.

I ended up tossing it into a box and bought something else that works perfectly.

Don't buy one (unless you would like to buy mine; I'd like to unload it on someone).

Worked for a while  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought one of these some years ago, but only put it into service recently. It worked when first connected but died in the first year of being used. I give it a 1 for the short time it worked.

Junk  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchasaed one from HRO. IT never worked after hours of playing with PC and radiuo. MFJ sent a replacement after I paid for return postage and $7. That never worked. A friend bought one in Dayton a few weeks ago, and that did not work. I purchased a cable from another vender, works perfectly. MFJ is really MIGHTY FINE JUNK!!!!!
