I am currently using a Yaesu FT-950 with the Elecraft KPA500 amp. Looking at options to upgrade the FT-950 and have landed up on 2 choices. Either the Icom IC7300 or the Yaesu FTDX3000. What are the pros/cons of each? Having heard both radios side-by-side for a short while, I felt that the FTDX3000 had better noise reduction compared to the 7300. Also, the 300 has much better audio/speakers then the 7300 The 7300 has the advantages in terms of the lower price, SDR and the scope. However, Ihave heard about the frontend overload problems in the presence of a strong signal. Will RF noise trigger an overload? What options are available to manage the overload issue? The 3000 is similar in layout to the FT-950. It is priced much higher than the 7300. Does that higher amount translate in to better features/performance? Is it even worthwhile to upgrade from the FT-950 to either of these options? Currently not looking for any other rigs, just the 7300 and the 3000. Any thoughts on this topic are appreciated.
