Has anyone in the group used one of these? Pro's and Con's, or is it just another expensive bells and whistles toy?

Have no experience with that one but I do have a Boss II that I have used with a Hi-Q that worked very, very well with my =706 MKII . It sells for $169.

For details:

I have one for my IC7000 and I like it. It works FB with my Little Tarheel antenna on rear of the MH. Had problem hearing the cw function confirmation tone.(I am Hearing Hindered). Called N2VZ and he told me to move the speaker off the internal board and mount it outside, No problem with warranty. I have two other tuners and use this most of the time.

Have one ...never used it... know several that have 'em and they all think they are the cats meow.... will part with it if you are looking for one. Got it for the 706 and HiC antenna but never got the chance to hook it up before the car got stolen... sooo if you need one give me a call... such a deal... WA6CDE
