Oh well... you can't please everyone. I love mine and use it on
everything from my homebuilt NN1G, to the NorCal 40a, through the
Argonauts and up to my Corsair. Just nulling 40 over nine carriers on
40M SSB is worth the price of admission, the audio AMPLIFIER in the unit
makes it a must have for speaker-less Power Mites and NC-40a's!

Nope. It is "new" to this year's catalog. Even though it came out last
summer.

In my best Robert DeNiro voice, "Charlie don't surf, and SCAFS don't
notch."
