Pleasant Surprise!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Wanted to try something different so got my XYL to purchase a used Standard C5800 on Ebay. Not much info about these radios on the net. Arrived today and powered up. Very easy operating layout and similar functions to the more expensive Kenwood TR-9000 of the same era. Ideal to drive my SR200 linear with nominal 25W. After a couple of CQ calls I'm working DX. The SR200 preamplifier makes a useful improvement on RX and with this combination I was hearing as well as my callers running less power than me. Overall, in my opinion, a very pleasant surprise!
