I haven't noticed any frequency drift on mine, seems solid on SSB. Receive is very sensitive as well. When using homebase knocking the RF gain down 2 or 3 segments reduces any local electrical noise but doesn't affect incoming signals.

When converting to expanded, does the radio require any re-alignment or tuning,
or is it simply snip & go?

no alignment needed

Anybody using the P.M.E.U. had a +30 signal on FM/SSB from the dx being received yet ? T.I.A

A local was on a pmeu the other day and it sounded ok with the stock mic.

I love my EU President McKinley, it's awesome ! Very pleased with it in performance and I got mine at Knights when they first became available.

Took the plunge and decided to get a McKinley from Nevada. Why not at that price. Just switched in on and all is good. Not sure whether to do the export mod or not.

Yeah, it is a great price and I don't think we'll ever see it cheaper so it was certainly the best time to get one.
