4.0 out of 5 stars reliable PS, March 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use this PS for a number of my vintage transceivers (a Swan cygnet 260, Icom 730 and Atlas 215X). It works great. The power connectors are exposed, so it is a potential shock hazards. A flimsy piece of plastic was provided to "cover" the terminals. It didn't work, so I used duct tape.

3.0 out of 5 stars expensive flypaper, March 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We have a pantry fly infestation. This product is a cardboard "trap" with sticky stuff inside. (Think fly paper.) You drop in a small, square piece of bait saturated paper. Flies are attracted to it, get stuck, die. It sort of works, but is much too expensive. We finally purchased some aerosol bombs that were cheaper, with more killing power.

1.0 out of 5 stars I liked the cover but forget what's inside, March 21, 2016
When am I going to smarten up and read the Amazon reviews before I read another Patterson/Paetro novel? First of all, the good things about my experience. The book is fairly short and a quick read. It only took about two hours to complete. It's perfect for sitting on the beach, drinking some beer, and working on a tan. You can finish the book before you are badly burnt. I think that's what the authors had in mind: a quick, mindless novel for reading at the beach instead of watching TV runs during the summer. Second, I didn't have to pay for it. My local library did. All of the bad points have been well documented by other reviewers. Heed what they say. The plot is trivial, contrived, not well thought out and unresolved. The characters are trivial, contrived, not well thought out and unresolved. (I strongly suspect this book was ghost written by a seventh grader taking a summer school creative writing course.)

I'm not really sure what can go wrong with a low wattage dummy load. I guess I should check for any RF "leakage." It's nice and small and portable.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this., September 4, 2015

I love this little phone. It's reliable. Because it's unlocked I've used it outside of North America with different SIMs. The battery is very long lasting. I'm sold on the brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, September 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These end fed antennae are relatively easy to build--if you have the time to collect the parts and put them together. I don't. This was a relatively inexpensive purchase, plus I like supporting other ham operators who are entrepreneurial and produce made-in-America stuff. I've only done a very quick 40 min "test", which involved taking the antenna to a nearby park in Beverly Hills, throwing the antenna up into a tree, and turning on my Youkits TJ2B transceiver (5 watts). I immediately had contacts up and down the west coast, Idaho, and in the mid-West at 4 in the afternoon on 40 and 20 meters. I am very pleased with both the antenna and transceiver--which I purchased for mobile/emergencies. (We are only 1 mile from the Hollywood fault.) This is by far the best of my portable antennae. It is definitely stealth, blending in nicely.

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe it'll be okay.., August 18, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Interesting morse code key. It included a 1/4" to 3.5 mm adapter plug which was so old that it shattered the first time I used it. When I wrote to the distributor, they didn't know what I was talking about, and had me send them photos of the broken piece. I gave up dealing with them and bought a new adapter from elsewhere. I did use it on one of my CW mode transceivers, and it worked okay.

Go with a Weller. This one failed after the first day. The wattage is much lower than advertised.
