*NEW* Midland M-5 Undressed

After some disparaging remarks on a forum that I’d never seen the Midland M-5 so cannot comment about it below we’ve the uncovered photos from the inside from the Midland I’ve not seen. I tested one at the start of the year when the dealers had I guess the samples to have a look at. It’s really not bad at all! I found a couple of niggles but this was now many months ago and since then no news so we will see. Just because someone is silent about something it doesn’t mean they know nothing about it. The insides share a similar look to the CRT Millenium V3 as well as the split power lead configuration. On the whole an excellent heavy duty microphone wire, export mode and also high power mode for the pirates out there and in a strong and robust case.

Obviously I was loaned this radio like in this case I think was in February and the deal is “keep your mouth shut” and this is done always without compromise. But now the radio is out there on the street I believe I’m safe enough to speak. Give it a go I think you’ll be surprised. Even at the sample stage just was ASQ need adjustment but the audio and the receive was good as was the export facilities.
