Still exellent  Time owned: more than 12 months
Owning the EQplus since November 2006 then for the FT 847 it is now used on the FT 2000-D for the last 2 years.
After 8 years of daily use never had a problem with it, does as advertised and even on the FT 2000-D with all nice internal settings for the microphone equalising the EQplus does a better job here, getting unsollicitated excellent good audio reports.

I'm not into ESSB and have the internal EQ mostly on 2-2800 HZ for my natural low voice to keep the bass a bit out of the audio, no need to sound like a bassy reporter ;)
For local contacts i could go to 1-3000 or 1-4000 even, but i hardly change the settings to there, i see no added benefit personally in that.
Downwards expanding works excellent, compression and limmiting as well, better as the internal FT 2000-D compression, used carefully it enhances the peaks of the audio without overdriving the ALC and adds a punch that lets me cut through QRM with standard 200 watts that normally needed the Heathkit SB-1000 on 400-600 watts to get the same result.
Needless to say the amp is used a lot less now, 200 watts and a few good antenna's does the job here.

Product is in production.
