Great for my 100w FT-857D Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I have several RS-35M's, but they're too big and bulky for my home office desk. If you add the radio, tuner, power supply and speaker, the setup was WAY too big. How about a 20 amp power supply WITH a speaker? SWEET. Two birds, one stone.

The RS-20S is only a few inches smaller than the RS-35M, but it does have a nice oval front-mounted speaker. Sure, it's lacking meters. Get the RS-25M if you prefer meters to a built-in speaker.

I purchased a like-new unit from fleaBay for about $40 shipped. It's been working perfectly under heavy use for over one year.

I've never seen another RS-20S on ebay, in a ham shack or at a swapmeet. If you find one, grab it!
