I am looking for a new rig to replace my Yaesu 450D in our vacation home. Will be holding on to my FTDX1200 in the home QTH which serves me well. Want to venture into SDR at a reasonable price for the winter home and am considering the price point favorite the Icom 7300. However when I browse today’s used market I find it hard to resist the classic FT1000MP now available at under $1,500 including the matching supply. The FT1000MP was an elite transceiver in its day but has been around for two decades. Although I have enjoyed our hobby for over 50 years I am not an EE. I can tinker with equipment problems and enjoy finding solutions which is a source of great satisfaction for all hams. But my electronic expertise falls short of most who post here So here is my conundrum...buy the proven contest favorite classic which I admire but which may exhibit major problems I may not be equipped to handle or move forward with the newer technology including SDR and a new equipment factory warranty for less $$? What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance.
