MFJ-9017 17 Meter CW Transceiver. you'll be amazed at how easy it is to work the world running only 5 Watts! MFJ CW radios are so light and compact that you can take them anywhere -- trips, vacations, backpacking, even biking! Here's what you get;
Easy Operation: The most user-friendly radio you'll ever own. Sets up in seconds -- no microprocessor mumbo jumbo.
Great sensitivity: 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 center-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. MFJ 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.
Sinewave Sidetone: 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!
