I went through a very rough 19 months with11 hospitalzations and many surguries that included a pacemaker/difibraltor unit after a 3 way bypass to save my life. That device says in the book that I should avoid RF and EMI fields. I am hoping to return to the air of the maker of the ICD says it's OK to operate a 100 watt rig without reprogramming my device. As I had another brand that shocked me for no reason before it was changed out I would rather not have that happen again. Anyway, I was looking at the Yaesu FTDX 1200. I had several Yaesu products and they all treated me well over the years. In particular I really liked the FT-990 and Field rigs that I had. I noted on You Tube that this radio has a CW decoder? Or do you have to get the FFT board? Never considered myself much of a CW op unless you consider my time as a Novice in the early 1970s. Plus my hearing is old too and I hate hearing aides! Wish me luck in returning. I even have permission from my HOA to put up an inverted V!
