Surprisingly Good Performance  Time owned: more than 12 months
Simple, compact, dual-conversion receiver performed very well. Very good sensitivity and selectivity.
I made a Folded Dipole Antenna out of 300 ohm twin Lead and Radio Shack TV Transformer- worked just fine.
I used mine in San Diego County; where there is some 6m FM activity. That may not be the case in your area. I would probably want to steer you towards the 2m version.
Not a bad building experience; however, kit just did not seem to "flow" like most of the other kits I have built...required a dash of finesse. That having been said, you do get a simple Receiver with sound fundamental performance. Volume control, Tuning, and Squelch- thats it.
Enclosure is sold seperate. I believe this was the first MFJ/Vectronics enclosure that I did not have to redrill or modify.
Need a simple, compact FM Receiver with darn good performance, here you go. Again, probably be more 2m Repeater activity in your area.
