    That reminds me of an old gag where you send a real cheapskate a $10-off certificate toward a Rolls Royce. : )

    Sure. Plus all the other things you can do with a radio like this: simplex SSB, simplex FM, local analog repeaters, digital repeaters, D-Star, etc, etc., etc.

    That would add two additional transverters!

    Looks like the 9700 made a showing at Hamcation!

    If the price was more around 1500, I'd consider one. I only wish there was a bit more 2m SSB activity around my neck of the woods. I will say pairing that with a 7300 would look awfully sweet on the desk

    Patric,
    Try again.... The same approach, but, this time have two dozen red roses in hand and a reservation at a good restaurant (not Tacco Bell). I tried that approach and my wife told me I could buy all the radios I want.

    Good Luck

    They sure look like twins. The 7300 and the 7900 would look grand beside one another in the shack.

    Actually, the pair would look more like three grand beside one another in the shack! :)

    Come to think of it, the pair would be a great price for the amount of ham band coverage you would receive.
