As people have pointed out, “it doesn’t come with a tuner“. My guess is that’s not the deal breaker because if you they changed the 705 to have a built in tuner and they raised the price by the cost of an internal tuner, those people would still be out, now “it’s too expensive”. There are many options for a tuner being that there is not one built in and yes I understand that these are external tuners and not internal tuners. My Ft-817 didn’t have a built in tuner so I bought the LDG Z-817 which included the cable. That tuner has also worked with every other low power radio that I’ve used it with and I expect it will work fine with the 705. Those things come up cheap on QRZ all the time at a reasonable price. They have sold tons of Elecraft KX-3’s that didn’t come with a tuner. You see those come up on QRZ all the time. They sold for much more than the 705 when new. There are probably just as many people that added the internal tuner option when they ordered their KX3 which adds about $220 to the price of that already pricy radio and people still bought them. The KX line is probably the second biggest selling QRP rig next to the FT-817/818. That’s still the biggest bang for your buck even without the tuner but it’s not an SDR with a waterfall, D-Star and a few other options. You can also build or buy the Elecraft T1 tuner which with work with the 705. Priced at $160-$190 depending of if you want to build it yourself of buy it prebuilt. Now these guys also have a dedicated tuner for the 705. https://www.dxengineering.com/parts/mtu-mat-705 Face it, most of us are old fat guys and we’ll carry and extra bag of snacks for a day of portable operation but I have to question the guy that says he won’t carry a tuner weighs just 10 ounces and an extra cable that might weigh 3 ounces. The 705 will be a big seller for the people that want to spend the money and it will be lacking some feature for the guy that won’t. Just my two pennies.
