    Parabens a loja.
    Este rádio tem todas as bandas como exemplo igual ao Yaesu FT817?

    $1,200 USD seems pretty steep, that must be with the built-in coffee maker ;)

    When I worked for JRC in the 90’s I visited the factory in Mitaka and sales office in Akasaka a few times. Each time there I made a point to spend a Saturday afternoon in Akihabara. T-Zone was my favorite.

    Same price as an IC-706MK-IIG 20+ years ago, not counting for inflation! It's a bargain.

    Mind you I have been having a second look at the Yeasu FT-818 with the SotaBeams speech processor and audio DSP unit could be the real alternative for half the price with my loop antenna, no need for spectrum display with a loop antenna not enough bandwidth! I used to have the FT-817 worked FB

    Looked at all the ham dealers and I guess the FT-818 is back ordered everywhere, I guess the Covid crisis has got us all on QRP!
