Disassembly Required  Time owned: more than 12 months
I will soon be disassembling a unit to make repairs. The first time applying RF caused arcing and smoke to appear. After removing the covers for inspection it was found that the mounting screws for some of the PL259s were contacting the circuit board traces or the ends of the pins from the relays where they passed through the circuit board. I will replace the screws with shorter ones. It's no small task to do all the unsoldering to gain access to make the repairs. I've had this unit sitting for a while so it will not be covered by any warranty. The unit design is not bad one if proper hardware was used and proper inspection was done. How many are out there like this one? 
Product is in production.
