Excellent receiver  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have owned this portable receiver for several years. I purchased it as a close out at the local Radio Shack store after hearing another ham bragging about the receiver and the excellent closeout price, under $100. It makes a very nice general coverage receiver with SSB coverage and many advanced features not found on cheap portable receivers. I use it for general monitoring of ham bands and as a take along vacation radio. It really shines when you connect an external antenna to it. I use a G5RV and it comes close to a ham band only receiver in general performance.
