Solid  Time owned: more than 12 months
I got this radio back in the mid '70's when it was still fairly new and I still have it. When it was manufactured it was an absolutely amazing radio and at the cutting edge of technology. I was upgrading from a National NCX-3 at the time and in comparison the Triton was all solid state, had wonderful QSK which almost nobody else had, incorporated a very good CW filter, had RIT, no-tune finals, automatic USB/LSB selection, and could even tune WWV. Relative to today's radios it still performs well, and has a quiet receiver that few PLL-based radios can match. However, it does have a slight drift...much better than the Tube type radios of the day, but noticeable in a digital environment. That's the only reason for the 4 rating in this modern comparison. This radio is still in storage in my the shack as a backup and I recently pulled it out to test it. It came right up and performed like it did when I used it to work DXCC on only 50w. Amazing.

Surprising  Time owned: more than 12 months
This was a botched CB conversion that I bought as a tech special on an on-line auction site. It was very easy to work on and restore to full use. The finals were blown thanks to some weird mods. I backed out the mods and with some advice from the service guys at Ten Tec, I purchased a pair of finals from RF parts and got back it back on the air. Given the age and the technology of the time, I have been pleasantly surprised by this rig.
