Good but wish the word selection to be more extensive...  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is a unique product. Although it requires patience and persistence, it has been of great help in improving my ability to read CW. It is easy to use and it performs as described. The audio is good with minimal background noise and the codes are played with a perfect fist. The use of Farnsworth is a big plus and the simulation of QSOs, albeit repetitive is one of the best I have seen around. My only complain is about its limited word vocabulary, as after a few months many of the words start being easy to guess just after a few initial characters are played. The selection of words is not exactly random but it seems to support the claim that not two sessions are exactly the same. It would be nice if the user could adjust the delay between the moment that the character is played in the audio and when it shows up in the display, as well as being able to set the number of times that each word, callsign or group of characters is to be repeated after being played once. A major plus is its portability and the possibility of using earplugs or earphones. The additional pouch is strongly recommended to prevent damage but mostly because the unit could then be carried attached to the belt.
