I'll say! Bought an already built 20m one from this list, and have been having a ball with it. Worked F5BBD one night while running off a badly run-down battery (something over 2,000
mile per watt); have had extended qso's with most of the European countries and several African ones. It's receiving sharpness rivals my TS-180S. The White Mountain rigs put out 3 watts
or so, versus the 10 watts of the MFJ 9400 series. But you can do surprisingly well with 3 watts, and of course, there is less draw on the power (about 1 amp with the WM vs. 2.2 amps
with the MFJ).
