Purchased within the last few months. Excellent receiver especially when using the 3/KHz roofing filter. Excellent noise reduction and blanker. Transmitted audio quality is excellent and I receive many unsolicited comments using just the HM-36 hand mic. Just mac sure you adjust your TX bass/treble properly along with your TX bandwidth. Built to the usual brick house standard, it's a heavy radio compared with similar radios in it's price & performance class.
