Johnny,

A nice thing about the Hilltopper is you don't have to go through a bunch of menus to use this radio.  You need to push a button to hear the audio frequency read out, change tuning steps, or change RIT for example, but these are not constantly used functions and there are not many of them to activate.  It's a simple to use radio putting out an honest 5 watts.  (You don't need to memorize or have a cheat sheet handy to be able to use this radio.)  Not a lot of frills but a great basic transceiver doing the basic things a transceiver needs to do and it does it very well.  The parts population is not super close either making construction much easier too.  The more you get to know this transceiver, the more you realize how nice it really is.
