I feel the same as mram!
Its a great little transmitter and it works VERY well for the money.
I bought mine on Ebay new in the box for $60 and it is WAY worth it.
I use mine with a Kenwood ant tuner feeding a G5RV ant with open wire line.
Using the enternal ant and bypassing the clever ATU I get well over 200 milliwatts.
If I push the audio to the very edge of distortion I see peaks close in the 1/2
At a standard 50 ohm load it is right at 100 milliwatts.
I am usei a OakHills QRP watt meter
On a clear freq I can get 2 miles and still hear the program material.
Its just above the noise level but its there!
All in all it a very nice rig.
If anyone buys one. PLEASE open it up and watch how the ATU tunes the inculded 10′ wire antenna. It is a sight to see the iron powder core rods move in the coils as it flattens the SWR. Very cool!
