I purchased a Yaesu FT-2DR and a SmartRF OpenSpot from Main Trading Company.
Both items are fantastic, REALLY !!
And if I may say so, MTC's shipping/delivery were better than excellent.
I did shop the net and found that MTC had a VERY competitive price.
100 % satisfied and recommend you shop and compare MTC when you are looking to purchase some Ham Gear.
