Hi all , new here .

Maybe just maybe i'll be getting one , secondhand of course .

Anything obvious to look for that might be a common issue ?

Not like power out/rx sensitivity and the like as they be real obvious , but anything else that might be a common problem , also going by the interweb the firmware does not get up-graded yes?.

Downloaded the manual (this radio also comes with it) , also grabbed the service manual .

Last question and thanks , a SWL here , how is the radio on the HF shortwave broadcasts , the AM filter good enough?

It'll be installed in the vehicle eventually .

Temperature is the only problem.
Install the fan mod if you put the rig in the car.
I used SSB on the AM broadcasts, select the better sideband.
