KPO DX5000 V7
Thursday, 10 March 2022  | 

I bought this radio as an upgrade to the CRT 6900. I didnt want to venture too far into a change of layout regarding the facia, dials and buttons so the new KPO was a no brainer.
The radio arrived well packed the next day by DHL and i was impressed with Thunderpoles service. I dealt with Andy after a few small problems with the settings menu i had. After a quick reset everything was top notch. This is a lot of radio for the money. You can feel the difference in quality of the channel changer and other knobs as you turn /adjust them. The display is also nice on the eyes. Ill give this radio Five stars and would recommend. There are not enough stars to give Thunderpole for their service throughout. Amazing! Cheers Rob MM7BVP
