Good QRP Radio  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Purchased mine from Larry @ QRVTronics in USA, assembled and aligned, very fast shipping. Radio works very well on both 20 and 40 meters, good receiver, and have been told keying sounds very good and clean. I use small HBJ12680 Li-on pack, available on E bay for $20.00 shipped. Very light and compact, nice for cheaper way to get 2 band QRP radio and battery pack runs a long time with very little voltage drop.

Great Little Radio!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just got it. Be aware that shipping time to East Coast is on the long side of two weeks.

Really unbeatable at the price. I did pay the extra $25 to get it already assembled and aligned.

Decent audio, low noise, good signal reports on TX on a 20m half-wave dipole in the attic through a tuner. Looking forward to trying it on my QRP loop antenna.

Light and compact.

Controls not intuitive, but not complicated, either.

Haven't had it on a peak yet, but very happy with its performance in the shack.
