5.0 Great Radio....get the software for CAT and Cable
Review 77 by : KC8WMD, Dan Kummer, Troy, MI 21-Jun-2003
I have owned this radio about a month. It covers all the bands in excellent fashion. The short instruction cheat card is helpful and can be found on EBAY.....explains all funtions on 2 pages. The instruction book is comprehensive although it takes time to digest it all. Performance on transmit and receive are excellent. YOu have to get the CAT cable and software to enjoy the radio to its fullest through computer control. I recommend the purchase if you want all the bands in one place.
Pros: Instruction book
Cons: smallness=complicated
Time owned: Less than 3 months - Price: 800.00 used

Review 86 by : KC0OFZ, Arend, 18-Jan-2004
This rig is a super radio to use. When interfaced with a good CAT program it is top of the line. From 160 meters to the satellites this radio will do it all. I recommend the SuperControl CAT software strongly as it really works well with the rig. I had done the research before buying and was under the recommendation of a fellow ham who is pleased with his as well. I would recommend this rig to any one looking for a great all in one package. For the money I cant see where this radio can be beat. If you get the chance to snag one get it, you won't regret it
Pros: Great rig, works like a charm
Cons: No SWR meter on radio
Time owned: Less than 3 months - Price: 950 Used from Burghardt Amateur Center
