I have had this radio for about a month, so far, and it seems very good. The TX audio is excellent on it, everyone tells me I have good audio. The RX audio also seems good. It puts out a full 100 watts on all the bands, according to my MFJ SWR/Wattmeter. I have worked a lot of DX with just a dipole and this radio. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good used HF rig.
