I have not, but can assure you those folks down at MTC are some of the best in the business!  What little I get to spend, I like to spend there!

Interesting concept.

Antenna and tuner would be a larger form factor than the radio.

Custom 12 position inductor switch, tune/bypass switch, antenna and transmitter capacitors, BNC feedpoints for antenna and transmitter connections.

It’s a tiny 4" x 2 ?" x 1 ½", so it and your MFJ-9200 (MFJ-9215, MFJ-9217, , MFJ-9230, MFJ-9240, or MFJ-9280) transceiver package and antennas can easily slide into a backpack or small briefcase to take along with you on your next field day, DXpedition, vacation or business trip.
