Hi, I'm looking at a few radios capable of "weak signal" work on 23 cm. I've been looking for a 736r for a while but I know that it'll be very expensive with the rare module. An IC-910H is out of the question, as is the TS-790A, for several reasons that I won't go into here. I DO have an opportunity to buy an IC-1271 for about $850 though, so I was wondering how its performance compares to some of the other 23 cm rigs (I know that the 1275 is better than the 1271, but it's a lot harder to find AND a lot more expensive). So what do you think? Should I wait around for a 736r or is the 1271 a good (or maybe better) substitite? Oh, and I'm not going to consider a transverter.
