Nice fan on the back; just like my FT-101F!
Nice looking rig for sure. Only 100 Watts? They should have made it at least 200 like my FTDX 5000. After the FT-991 debacle, I predict any new radio from Yaesu will be a slow starter.
Yaesu can I be a Beta tester?? Please contact me!!!
Buy a Flex or Elecraft. They are made in America. Support American companies.
I do agree if the price is where they think it's going to be for either of the new offerings, I would be giving a 6400m a hard look.
Does it have the clickety-click style controls like the FTDX-1200? I never owned a FTDX-3000 so not sure if they had them as well.
HOLY $%^&$*, Sorry with the conditions as they are now, I PERSONALLY cant see paying that much anymore, at least IN MY CASE, LOL.
Ok Paul when you get yours please forward the free one to me.
I expect Gigaparts is right and it will be between 3k and 4k, competitive with but unlikely to greatly undercut the 7610.
At that price I might, just maybe, look into one (and the 7610) in a couple years when the bugs are out and reports are in - and maybe used ones can be had at a discount.
The 5k price is clearly absurd for this radio and will be a non-starter. It could do well, if it works well, at the 3k-4k Gigaparts is estimating.
