    I just received mine from from YeticomNZ. I will be putting it through it's paces and will post back my findings. It landed here in Canada at approximately $340.00 with shipping and handling. (Canadian $ = 1 US $ [par])

    A very interesting radio. Dave Donaldson sent me a "Test results and specs" PDF. I have attached it here. I have also attached the latest version of the operating manual. BTW - The front panel escutcheon reads "AM/FM/SSB HF TRANSCEIVER" not "CB".

    the lewis family is sitting on a goldmine, yet they keep churning out clones of junk. if they would do this, they would have a winner. from somebody who spent $600 on a loaded ar3500 back in the 80's, i'd certainly consider $340 for one of these. beats a magnum 257hp hands down. just 3db less output and a whole bunch more features for only 90 bucks more. what a deal!

    This Radio would make me a great Birthday Gift. Even though that's not until May, So that gives me enough time to search on where to purchase this unit.

    Dave,
    The radio sounded really good here in the states the day that we talked. I believe you said your were using the stock mic, which it was very clear and sounded really good for a stock.
