This radio is excellent but has a couple of weak points: the keypad can develope bounce and the potting compound on a section of the i.f. board (I believe it is) can become conductive and cause the digital readout to blank. It uses a filtering circuit which places the filters into series, effectively stacking them, and improving the skirt selectivity over receivers using single filter circuits. Generally, this receiver is a pleasure to operate.
