    How do you run power in your shack or even when portable doing POTA or SOTA? The easiest way to get the power where you need it is via PowerPoles! MFJ has no shortage on PowerPoles! In this video I will show you inside and out of the PowerPole Strips MFJ 1106, 1124 and 1126. The MFJ-1106 is perfect for a small shack, portable, POTA or SOTA, while the MFJ-1124 and MFJ-1126 can stream line the power in your shack!

    Got a big bowl of popcorn out just for the comments. This should be a doozy. ;)

    Pretty much. Any time the word Baofeng or MFJ is mentioned, it's always a "show".

    In BOLD:
    "The easiest way to get the power where you need it is via PowerPoles!"

    That would be an opinion, not a fact. I use other methods for connecting power to my radio gear. None use PowerPoles.

    Your post sounds more like an advertisement than anything else.

    Why would you buy a copy-cat rip-off product cheaply made? I smell a rat that stinks like a used car salesman. I also find the OP's avatar extremely offensive, Mason's do not sell anything.

    I don't know much about the MFJ power strips. I don't own one. But I think there are a couple of things to consider. While MFJ does make "cheap" stuff, and many of their items are copies of other items available from other manufacturers they do provide good access to the hobby for many hams. They have a no-matter-what warrantee. I also think nearly every ham has a product that MFJ makes. They have acquired a long list of brands. Yeah, I know, there are quality issues, I have heard about, and experienced all of the problems. But I still keep buying stuff that I want or need for the shack. Judge me if you like.

    All of these product review videos, especially ones where the manufacturer provides the products being reviewed for free are advertisements. I don't think you can say that there is a rat here. When I ran the video it ran with text that said: "Video includes paid promotion". Didn't feel like anyone was trying to hide anything. On the other hand if you were in the market for a power strip for your shack, and you were comparing maybe the video would be helpful. I watched the video because I was interested in seeing how the MFJ power strips were shaping up. When I bought my power strip from West Mountain radio nearly 25 years ago, MFJ didn't have a power strip.

    I use a Rigrunner 4008 here, works very well. Got it years ago.

    Power Poles are great for ease of use. So are lugs and wing nuts & those aren't made by MFJ. ;)
