Pros: Nice, solid 2m radio with all the features. Good front end.
Cons: Overheats easily...heat sink isn't adequate.
Comments: The ft15000m is a great little radio. It is solid, can take abuse (both physical and electrical) and has a well-designed front end. The filters are odd, but some modifications and better filters from InRad or wherever fix the situation just fine. Don't plan on doing too much work inside, since the components are so compressed. But all-around, this is a great radio that I would recommend to anyone, anytime.
