Good evening Lee,
I've used my TH-F7E ( Europe version without 220) now on several occasions for receiving, for me it worked perfect, but as i do rx only (so far) i can't tell you how it will react on a 20w signal.
the only con i have is that the tune knob is quit small, and if you use small tuning steps like me you will have to turn a lot ;-) but this is more a comfort issue than a real problem.
