Built very well.Has most of the features you could want in a short wave radio, Best looking radio I have ever owned.....But I keep going back to my Drake R8,Why?the 545 is hard to listen to hour after hour.The R8 is alot more quite, easy on my ears. If the 545 sound was good as the R8 it would be the perfect radio for me. So I plan to part with it.
I bought this rig to replace my JRC NRD 535.
I am verry happy to own this receiver.
