I have had this rig now since July 2015 and am really pleased with it. It was my first DStar radio and with the large touch screen I was quickly able to work out how to use it - helped by MS&L's pre-programmed SD card. As I use it in the shack the Nifty Desk Stand is a must have and for the price is a no brainer. Good on Martin.
