The Yaesu FTDX-3000 has a nostalgic look which appeals to many hams, in particular those who were young in the 1970's. Take it from me. What I want is the look and feel of the past, and underneath is today's technology. I believe that Yaesu is building the 3K upon some previous model, and the cleen-cut design tells me the software/firmware is debugged accordingly. I think the model beams quality and restrained purity. Do you want to get on the air, or do you want to fiddle with buttons?
I have a FT-950. Okay. At the moment I also have an IC-7600 on my table, just for the sake of comparison. As a matter of fact indeed, I cannot wait to kick out the Icom. Honest to God.
