Re: FRIENDS DON't LET FRIENDS BUY YAESU

Ah. well I've got a Yaesu FT-897D and get nothing but great audio reports on the air, yes the learning curve on the rig is high, like most Yaesu's I have used, but when you spend the time and get to know the rig and its operation, its really quite intuitive.

Re: 857d or icom 706 mkIIg

Suppose it depends if you want a standard built in DSP vs an add on in the 706, you'll certainly pay more for the 706Mk2 G; if your into AM the 706 will put 40 watts out, compared to the Yaesu's 25.

Meh, I still maintain my old VX-7RB was a POS, but even so I just got an 897D, from everything I read here and other places its a very highly regarded rig for its class, if I had the $$ I would have gone for the Icom 756 Pro III tho *drool*.

For anyone going i'll be on the regular HS/BL channels.. BW1 BW2 BAT1. Beacon isn't a terrible affair, there's usually some pretty good stuff if you get there early enough to beat the vultures.

S-record request AS3

Does anyone have a:

* UHF R Split AS3 Srec?

4f1e/1c5e would be fantastic, if not a super-whore, a moderately slutty one would suffice :baby:

Hi David, The original MIB (grey plastic box) will probably NOT do the Astro Sabers. We have never had any here to try, and the MIB is not a clone of Motorola's RIB, and was designed before the Saber and Jedi were launched.
