Wow, 2M is truly dreadful on this radio. I believe there's a filter available for it (although I can't find one for sale in the UK). Surely the radio should have a VHF filter built-in as standard at this price range?

I have cheap $20 dollar VHF radios with better performance.

What issues are you having, Tom? I am not sure the Prime model has the VHF highpass filter built in. I have the filter and my MB1 performs very well on 2m, I have never used it for local ragchew or repaters, only Tropo, MS, Es conditions.

UPDATE : My apologies - I purchased this radio from a dealer as Ex-Demo. The settings had obviously been messed around with and I have now found my way around enough to rectify things. It now sounds fine.

I'll keep my mouth shut in future :D :D :D :D :D

Glad you got it sorted, Tom! :D

I've had a ton of weak signal QSO's with the MB1 without using any external preamp.
