Prices now cheaper!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The interface is old fashioned, from the Windows 98 days. But it does a fine job replicating actual busy contest situations.

Pile ups will follow any clear signal you tune, need to pounce. Matter of fact seldom find signals in the clear. Sometimes your call will be ignored, other times they come back when you have little hope among the crowd. As in reality.

Conditions are more crowded and competitive than in real life. But on the other hand that means there are more signals to hear. For learning convenience, the speed which the other guys will use will close to what you have put into the settings from 10 to 35 wpm.

IMO, a good step above learning the code and before going on the air. Wish this was available back in my day :/.

The price is down to about $20 as the interface is now somewhat dated. But it works as a simulation surprisingly well. Different bands will change conditions as the time of day or night marches on. 
Product is in production.
