Built like a tank and works wonders!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
One of our club's 70cm repeaters had been plagued for years by poor receiver performance. Talk out range was always far greater than talk back range. Observations suggested that our problem was a high ambient noise floor.

We'd investigated several different options prior to stumbling upon DCI's web site. We originally considered ordering a DCI custom filter (with 6 or more poles), but decided on the stock filter knowing we could exchange it for a custom model if we weren't satisfied. We did order the rack mount option.

Ordering was quick and easy, and the product arrived prior to the promised due date (always a nice surprise). Packing material was more than adequate and complete, easy to understand instructions were included in the box.

The unit is built like a concrete communications equipment shelter and installs in seconds (fool proof installation too!). Our repeater's talk back performance not equals our talk back performance thanks to the folks at DCI.

I highly recommend this product. If in or near Northern, NJ, give our repeater a listen on 448.875 MHZ, CTCSS 151.4. Call sign is W2UHF.
