OK, I never know where to post any more so I'll place it here. I am soon to be the proud owner of a new rig. I can't afford the big boy radios so I am looking at the Yaesu FTDX-1200 and the FTDX-3000. Keep in mind I will be getting out of an old Kenwood TS-140, like selling my Volkswagen and buying a Porsche! I have a hard time justifying the 600-800 dollar difference between the two so y'all help a guy out and let me see if I can make sense of your replies. I just don't see any significant difference between them. What do you folks think? I'm told the Kenwood receive is weak (the TS-590SG) No experience with it just what I read and hear. Thanks.
