Easy Operation: The most user-friendly radio you’ll ever own. Sets up in seconds – no microprocessor mumbo jumbo.

Great Sensitivity: New hotter than ever superhet receiver brings weakest signals in at full volume (super-quiet FET post amp stage in the IF filter makes this the best CW receiver going).

Excellent Selectivity: Tight CW bandwidth crystal ladder filter fights unwanted QRM and noise to the maximum.

Smooth and Stable VFO: Wide-spaced reduction drive VFO capacitor glides slowly across the easy-to-read dial.

True RIT: RIT control has centre detent – makes listening or calling off-frequency a snap.

Easy on Your Ears: Smooth AGC tracks only the signals you want to hear – it never locks onto strong signals outside the audio bandpass. MFJS Instant Recovery AGC snaps the receiver back at a full gain after transmitting.

Built-in Speaker: High efficiency 3″ speaker driven by 100 MW of audio gives great volume.

Rugged Transmitter: Motorola power amplifier transistor delivers full QRP output, and tolerates opens and accidental shorts without damage.

Sine Wave, Side Tone: Pure 700 Hz CW sidetone makes sending as much fun as receiving!

Semi-QSK: Set adjustable hold transmit / receive switching to suit your normal sending speed or set it for full QSK during contests.

Easy to Power: It uses little power – only 50 MA average on receive and 1.2 amp peak on transmit. Perfect for battery operation in remote locations!

Rugged Construction: MFJ CW radios are built on G-10 double-sided plated-through PC boards in our plant. Rugged all-metal cabinet with the brushed aluminium front panel and vinyl clad cover.
