Outstanding!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I had the first model of Stefanos's RAN-DOM working for over 10+ years flawlessly without any
problem, so I decided that it was time to move on...The new RAN-5M2 ATU has many advantages
like micro-processor based, dual antennas, memories, protections etc. that help a lot and it is within
a reasonable price limit. Also, it has a direct connection with Kenwood, Icom and Alinco transeivers.
The manual explains everything about how ATU work and Stefanos is always helping others by phone
for further explains. Good job STEFANOS SV1NL!!!
