    The only problem is that RS no longer carries them.

    I have the MFJ installed on a base radio and it sounds good. I did one additional thing being that I like to keep the volume up on the radio so I can hear it in every room.

    Using an external speaker, I attached a 100 ohm pot across the speaker terminals then fed this into the MFJ. This way you have more options to keep the volume up on your radio without damaging the pocket repeater which is warned in the instructions about over driving it, and can you can keep it connected all the time.

    Audio quality is good, you have 4 different settings to control the audio drive into the radio by moving/ removing jumpers. Once you get it set up correctly you will be pleased with it.
