I have my HF-225 for two weeks now. Itś a verry easy to use sensitive lkiitje Marvel.
Allbuttons and the dial are easy to use. No complicated things to worry about. Even on LW an MW it's a verry fine receiver in my opinion. Compared to my Barlow Wadley itś more sensitive and easier to opperate. The remote keypad is easy for direct frequecy input. On Ebay i also found a wireless remote. Even operating via your computer is possible. There is a schematic and simple program on the net for this.
Compared to the new Palster R30A it has les memory places and more filters. And the Palstar lacks posibility's for remote or Computer operating.
I like it a lot
