    I thought Joe had moved everything up to 3880 bcuz 40 has been dead and there's a Fall sked intl BC station around 7285.

    I REALLY like the radio.
    It is not ideal for AM, it rolls off the lows on RX around 200 Hz and the highs on TX above 2900 Hz.
    But it looks great, its easy to use, performance is very good.
    Sometimes the lack of lows helps copy on some signals.

    Mine had an output transistor fail.
    I had disconnected the antenna port and had it in transmit with the power set to zero and that
    might have done it somehow.
    I use it mostly to drive the big rigs with rf carrier.
