Description

Introducing the MFJ-9015 – 15-Meter CW Transceiver, a compact and lightweight radio that will amaze you with its ease of use and impressive performance. Featuring easy operation, the MFJ-9015 is the most user-friendly radio you’ll ever own. No complicated microprocessor mumbo jumbo here – this radio sets up in seconds. Its new superhet receiver boasts exceptional sensitivity, bringing in the weakest signals at full volume. Thanks to the super-quiet FET post-amp stage in the IF filter, it’s known to be the best CW receiver available.

The excellent selectivity of the MFJ-9015 is achieved through its tight CW bandwidth crystal ladder filter, which effectively fights unwanted QRM and noise. You can expect a smooth and stable VFO experience, as the wide-spaced reduction drive VFO capacitor glides slowly across the easy-to-read dial.

With true RIT control featuring a center-detent, listening or calling off-frequency becomes a snap. The smooth AGC tracks only the signals you want to hear, ensuring a pleasant listening experience without locking onto strong signals outside the audio bandpass. As an added bonus, MFJ’s InstantRecovery AGC snaps the receiver back at full gain after transmitting.

Equipped with a high-efficiency 3″ speaker driven by 100 mW of audio power, the built-in speaker delivers great volume. The rugged transmitter, powered by a Motorola power amplifier transistor, delivers full QRP output while tolerating opens and accidental shorts without damage. Enjoy pure 700 Hz CW sidetone for a delightful sending experience.

The MFJ-9015 offers semi-QSK functionality with adjustable hold transmit/receive switching, allowing you to tailor it to your normal sending speed or set it to full QSK during contests. Its power consumption is minimal, drawing only 50 mA on average during receive and 1.2 amps peak on transmit, making it perfect for battery operation in remote locations.

Built with quality in mind, the MFJ CW radios are constructed on G-10 double-sided plate-through PC boards in their own plant. The rugged all-metal cabinet with a brushed aluminum front panel and vinyl-clad cover ensures durability and a stylish appearance.
