    If the FT-891 had 2 / 440... it woudl be the new 706Mk2G... people would be going nuts for it.

    I had a Ft-891 in my SUV and I was able to work the world with an ATAS-120A.

    Now, I need to upload a goofy picture, with over accentuated features... you know... to make a point.

    Been watching swapmeet and if you keep your eye out, you can find used single receiver K3/100 with autotuner for about $1k now. I still use mine everyday and love it. Very loaded K3 are now around $1.5k. Sure it is an older radio but with new synth board it is still in top 10 of transceivers in the market.

    The IC-7100 is "the new 706Mk2G." If it didn't have that bizarre form factor and allowed attaching a non-bizarre shaped faceplate to the rest of the radio it would be way more popular than it is. I'm still mulling over getting one. The form factor would actually be a plus.

    Totally agree about the Rf gain control. Roll it back. Give the signal reports with your ears not looking at the meter.

    The price here in the U.S. at HRO for the new Yaesu FTDX-10 is $1,699.99 [https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-017366]. Not quite the $2,000 I estimated using the U.K. price -- having forgotten to include VAT -- but still more than $1,000.00 for something that might be called an "entry-level HF radio".
