    being nothing like the IC-9700 is the point! It's Better! Well at least that's my opinion. Anyway Yaesu would probably throw a 2,500 dollar price tag cause for some reason they think there better then Icom. HI HI.

    Im getting that "Get your feet off your desk and invent something!" kinda vibe from Yaesu.

    He discusses the reason that it is analog-only: for those who want an analog only radio without the added cost of C4FM. The advantage of a better display like on their other C4FM radios is reason enough to not want it on a basic display like this (like some of their others have had).

    I don't currently use C4FM but the price of this radio is too much without it. I paid less than the price of this radio for my FTM-100DR and it has C4FM. The price of this radio should be around $200.00 or so. I am a Yaesu fan but what were they thinking? 73

    I see what you're saying but the 7900 which this 6000 resembles was like $280 when it was discontinued so...add on inflation and stuff, I guess here we are.

    Nice and easy to use device, after configured it well. I miss a bit some analog digital features like SSTV. For example this kind of standard digimode in the analog world is and stays always present. Nowadays there is no need for a computer to send it out. This could be an idea for the next generation of Yaesu devices. Which for example the transceiver VGC VR-N7500 provides today.

    Well... the Moto APX-series of mobiles, you need to run a cable to the brick, as well as a yellow/red power cable to the head. If you use the O3 head directly on the brick, you will still need to rig a head for programming.

    I recently got an Icom IC-2730A, and it has an RJ45 connector on the head and one on the body. I had my local commercial radio shop install it in my 2021 Ford Edge. Brick under the seat, speaker on the dash, NMO rear quarter, and head though the console to a cup holder; this is where I can use a microphone, but opted to use a CAT5 extension cord 2 feet long. I can hide the mic, and I have the magnet mount kit so I can remove the head too.
