Exactly what I needed  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was looking for a "real" radio that could be easily ported around. The Icom R75 and Alinco RX-8T were on my short list, though they got pushed back when I saw the announcement for the CR-1 on the RR forums. Following the reviews and feedback for a few months, I felt it was a perfect time for me to purchase.

I like the radio for many reasons, but a few important ones are; it's made in USA, the company makes available firmware updates for free, its small size, an OLED display that looks great in many different lighting conditions, and its built in lithium-ion battery. The radio is also very sensitive and has a low noise floor. The case feels substantial and has a solid build.

I feel like I've invested in a radio that, with updates, will continue to improve upon its already good operation.
