2nd ONE DOA  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This Analyzer is the same as the AA-100 Analyzer by Gulf Stream Electronics. Tho, I think they are not selling direct, now that MFJ has them.
Saw the review on HAM Nation. Seems like a neat product. Back Ordered it. Down loaded the FREE FRENCH PC software...yea. FRENCH.

Second one showed up from HRO in less than 5 days turnaround. Would not run on internal batteries, nor charge batteries. Ran fine on USB power. SO-239 worked fine. Powering it from USB power, it seemed to do everything it is advertised to do. Called MFJ, talked to Jimmy. He emailed a return label and said he was sending me one that worked. I UPSed the second dead one back to MFJ. Waiting for the 3rd one.

The BROWN truck delivered my 225 today. Put batteries in it. Charged it. Turned it on. Screen came up, then the menu. Attached an antenna cable. As I attached it to the SO-239 the screen flashed back and forth from opening screen to menu, then faded dead. Turned it off, rechecked the batteries, looked for loose screws (it is a MFJ label), and shorts/opens on the SO-239 board. Could not find anything. Back to HRO. They are sending me a shipping label. Hope this story turns out for the better.
