I wouldn't expect much performance or efficiency on 220.
The gentleman's claims of full power output sounds dubious.
Any new tech should love this as a viable option.
Low cost and very small.
If the dog should eat it; then you can't cry as hard as you would if it ate a Yaesu!
2 watts and a repeater = new Ham that got on 2m for a lot less money than I did.
What will HRO do now?!?
