|Customer Reviews for the MFJ-9440X.|
|From: Jeff Latz KA0ARW|
|I've been using the MFJ 9440 in SSB and CW for a number of years. I've taken it camping in the woods. I throw a dipole up in the trees, hook up a lawn mower battery, attach a solar panel and have at it. It is a fun rig at home or in the woods for sure. If I can hear a signal I can usually work them. When conditions are right for 40 meters I have worked DX, such as South America. It has been a robust unit standing up to much moving about in the camp bag and rough camping weather. I recommend it highly.|

|This is a fantastic radio. It's built durable, it has a great receiver, and it seems to transmit pretty well too. Definitely didn't expect a 10 watt radio to work this well, especially for this price.|
I was happy to see that a headphone jack has been added to this rig on the recent revision. This was a concern of mine from reading previous reviews.

|What a great radio! I have more fun using this radio than any of my other HF rigs that I own. I worked DR1A in Germany during a contest pileup on a dipole and I don't think the guy believed me when I told him what I was using. It has great receive and excellent audio. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this radio. Keep up the good work MFJ!!!|

|OK got the rig in February put two 7 amp batteries paralell, two 5 watt solar panels and a tunner wid a wire ant. it all fits in a small back pack, ready for field day in June. Fat chance I already have nearly 100 hours on this rig and it is March. In SSB mode, DX to the Canary Islands from colorado , all over the states. I put the MFJ-415b cw mod when i got the rig and have had a blast working local stations. This is one rock steady radio from 449 to 599 rst very little warm up needed drift is not reported. On the trail, in a park, just about anywhere. Still looking forward to field day with it. |

|This radio is awesome,I get very good signal reports and a lot of inquiries about what I am using for equipment.. I simply have this radio going through an MFJ 874 SWR meter and then through 100ft of RG213 coax into a MFJ balun which feeds my inverted v dipole with the apex at about 30 ft above the ground here|MFJ-418
