    That’s pretty much true of all radios in the 7300’s price class. The 7300 is feature-rich at a decent price, which makes it attractive to a lot of new hams and casual HF ops. I’d be tempted to buy one as a spare 100w rig if I had a spare grand. But there’s a reason it costs around 1/6 the price of a 7700 or a well-optioned K3. Most hams will never notice the difference unless they use it in a strong-signal contest or DX pileup environment with a high gain antenna.

    Some radios have the original firmware in ROM. So a hardware reset can recover to factory new.

    Some radios write over the original firmware so recovery is harder, and JTAG is required for recovery.

    All my electronics are run off UPS. Otherwise in a power failure while updating any computer, transceiver, we are at risk of bricking the device.
