    Vivax metrotech 5watt is my favorite so far (the 10 watt is cool but I get thrown off when I bleed off on another line at 20 milliamps instead of 2 lol) I like the subsite transmitter as an alternate but the reciever doesn't seem to have the sensitivity of a vivax or RD. RD's are good too, but lack 1.45khz although I've only used the slightly older ones. I can't go without 1.45khz when locating in the older areas (those old "tinfoil" drops work decent on 1.45, seem to bleed off on 8.19khz and don't light up on 512 for me here.) comes in handy on electric too.
