Well here is the deal, I know pretty much the technical specs of these three rigs, and I understand that the Kenwood rig does not have IF DSP... I would like some opinions from those who have used any combination of these three rigs, and can give some input as which they liked better and why... I don't care for the appearance of the 7200, its kinda ugly, but appears to be built well, and with a "weather-resistant" front panel it may be more forgiving to field day ops and camping trips. But from what I have read so far, it sounds like a good performer. I like the TS-480 for the most part, just that it doesn't have IF DSP, but other than that, it seems like a really good little rig also. The 746PRO seems petty awesome, but I am worried about dust problems, When I go camping, I always keep things dry, but my gear always gets dusty, and the 480 and 7200 seem better suited to that... At this point I could lean towards any on these three, between the 746 and 7200, if you toss out the 2M operation, which is the better rig? Do any of you that have used a TS480 and 746Pro side by side, do you miss the IF DSP or are there other factors on the receive between the two, that you might like one better than the other. Thanks!
