For the first time in nearly 20 years, I'm thinking about a mobile installation. I searched the forum for recommendations on radios, and a lot of people are raving about the IC7100. It looks like a nice rig. I have been looking at a Kenwood TS-480HX for a few reasons Ease of use (according to some reviews) 200 Watts output power Built-in antenna tuner While receiver performance is certainly a factor, I wouldn't make that a deal-breaker due to ambient and transient noise experienced operating mobile. VHF/UHF is not an issue either because I can always install a 2/440 rig in addition. I have a bunch of old LDG auto tuners laying around that I can use, and I plan to start with the collection of hamsticks I've accumulated over the years for antennas. So, I think the TS-480HX allows me to go without needing power and cabling to an external tuner, and gives me twice the output power while needing very little menu adjustments.....it reminds me of a Yaesu FT-900 I used to run. The IC-7100 gives me VHF/UHF, and possibly a superior receiver but cuts the power in half and requires the insertion of a tuner or matching device of some kind. I've never owned a Kenwood, but maybe it's time. What am I missing guys?
