Nice.....just add 2 meters and 432 and it's sold.
looks like it's set to fill the gap left by the kenwood ts-50, hope it performs as well.
well, for that price I would just buy another FT-857D.

Good point. I wonder what they have in mind for this radio.

Kenwood is the only one making a do-it-all rig for the shack with the 2000. We need more options. You would think that with all the sales of the ts-2000, Yaesu and Icom would do something.
Not so sure I like it. Features seem nice, pretty much the same as the 857/97, just more on the panel instead of menu based, but, visually, looks like a GIANT step backward... jury's still out, though. Also, there's not a word of it mentioned on Yaesu's site....

Another pic...looks "cheap"
Like the white lettering much better....!
Actually, if you read the specs, it offers quite a lot of stuff for the price. #Looked at several dealers web sites and the rig runs in the $1,000.00 price range, which puts it right where it should do fine. #IF DSP, not AF, for one thing. #No unnecessary frills like band scanning, and there are still a lot of us out there who don't need/want them.
Looks like a nice rig for a CW guy like ME.....hmmmm (hi).
I gotta look closer at this one when it hits the shelves.
Yes it does and in the same price range as Kenwood's TS-480 which looks like and is a good little radio. Too bad, I would love to have a reason to go back to Yaesu but they just aren't cooperating.
