Does the job!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have to commend MFJ for supplying the amateur community with the small products that may not be glamorous but are needed and in this hams opinion greatly appreciated.

The window feed through did what it was advertised to do and very well I might add. Time will tell how it holds up, but I suspect it will weather just fine. The options are unlimited as to what you may want to pass into the shack.

I have many MFJ products and I am happy with all of them... 259B antenna analyzer and 993B auto tuner to name a couple.

I hope they continue to grow...

Pretty good panel  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Wonderful little panel, which allows you to put your cables through the window, rather than drill holes through the wall. I received mine in the mail yesterday and installed it immediately. The only small items I have against it are: the wood quality was not as good as I felt it could be; perhaps my problem, but I cut it slightly smaller than it should have been (I had originally expected a product with springs or something to push against the window, so it would not pop out); hard to keep the grommets in place (again, perhaps just my own problem, but maybe design differences could fix these problems). But it really is a nice-looking panel, especially at a distance. I was able to pass my LMR-400 through the miscellaneous-size hole quite easily, but it was a bit tough to place the weather-proof grommets where they needed to be. I needed to have myself inside and four kids outside simultaneously doing this project, so it wasn't just a piece of cake, but it worked and it really looks pretty nice now. A window stopper is also included, which must also be cut to size, but will stop the window from being open while the panel is in it. The panel is designed to work both horizontally and veritcally, that is, depending on the orientation of the window.
