  1. I had one of the earlier ones back in Feb 2015. But it was beset by problems.

    Mine basically went kaput, like quite a few and in April 2015, I had to send it back to Wimo, who then sent a whole batch of them back to China. They weren’t repaired, but replaced with the MKII X108G model (outdoor version) after six months. I sold mine on without ever taking it out of the box.

    I understand that the X108G is now quite decent and the RX I had on mine (original) was excellent. They don’t have FM in case anyone is thinking 11m.
