Not a trick question. Prices seem too good to be true.

I have some of them, and they work well.
Made up a box with 4m, 2m and a 90W HF linear and filters for the FDM-DUO, which you can programme to show the correct frequency on the display.

I think 8-10W is nearer the mark for a clean signal though.

They are very sensitive to too high an input signal, otherwise fine, do the job well.

Reasonable, cheap, units.
Early ones prone to spurious issues, later ones apparently better.
OK for general use, caution with linears, always check on spectrum analyser.
Prone to overload.
Just a few of the comments passed by those who have checked them out.

Cheers

Tony
