I was a Metron dealer years ago before Magnus sold out to Transworld. I
toured the Transworld factory shortly after they took on the Metron line,
and was very impressed. They make many military communications products, spy
radios, intrinsically safe radios, and all kinds of comm. gear for
governments all over the planet. It speaks well for the Metron that it met
mil. specs. with little or no changes from the Magnus version. Magnus
offered a 10-meter kit; I sold/installed a bunch. I have not seen a
Transworld version, but I am fairly sure that it covers 1.8 to 30 MHz.
without any mods. or gaps in coverage.

I figured that enquiring minds wanted to know!
