    But the thing is, whether you've got the Maestro or a M version, you can still control it with a PC. Just like the no-knob models. If you're still bothered, you can disconnect the Maestro and hide it in a closet, or you can turn your M to the wall so you don't have to see those darned old knobs! :p

    Yeah, I think I have a knob problem. I'll talk it over with my therapist.

    I hope these rigs are successful for Yaesu, but they're outside my budget.

    My therapist wasn't very helpful. She suggested that I should move to Knob Hill.

    At the moment, I use an ICOM 7800 which is like a small suitcase sitting on the bench. I'm looking into getting one of the Expert Electronics Sun SDR Pro2 radios. The reason being is will free up a lot of space because I can make all the big changes using my trackball and computer screen. I don't really understand why someone would trade in something like what I've got and replace it with an SDR radio of exactly the same size with all the knobs and buttons

    The real question is have Yaesu solved the ultimate problems all British Hams want solved?

    1 Can it make a decent cup of tea and
    2 Can it stop a woman from nagging that your on the radio to much ?

    When these pressing technological problems are solved we may finally have found the ultimate rig !
