If you don't like the offer don't buy one. I've had a TS-480SAT for about six years and love it. In fact all but one of my radios are Kenwood and they are all fantastic. Will I buy one of these? Probably not, but only because I'm happy with my TS-480 and not in the market for a new HF rig at the moment. What I won't do is bash this offer or any other manufacturers product just for the sake of being an ass. Just my .02.
