    I hope the Facebook message from Gigaparts was wrong, I really do, but again, Gigaparts posted that Yaesu has set the MSRP of both radios: The D model for $5000 and the MP model for $6500. The $3000 to $4000 guesses are old and now unfortunately way off.

    MY radio becomes "old" when it no longer works and can not be repaired. NOT by the manufacturer, (who make $$$ on sale of a "NEW" radio and frequently discontinue models) but by the independent repair shops. Some model radios go out of production after only five or ten years. Does THAT make them old?

    I remember when the FTdx-5000MP came out, it was just over five thousand dollars. This is supposed to be the latest high end state of the art radio from Yaesu and assuming it is better than the FT-5000 then five grand would be a reasonable price. High end radios are not cheap.

    Yeah but in the pictures it kinda LOOKS like the 3000 model. The 5000 LOOKS like a $5000 radio! LOL! Anyway, the MP model is said to have an MSRP of $6500, not $5000. The $5000 is for the 100 watt D model. The 200 watt MP model again (and again) will be $6500 according to the Gigaparts Facebook post. With the 7610 out there for under $3000, Yaesu is going to have a VERY hard time getting even $4000 for the D model.

    This is correct, straight from the horse's mouth (John Kruk, National Sales Manager for Yaesu USA). John STRESSES that these are MSRP prices - and acknowledges that NO radio has ever been sold for MSRP. Wholesale to dealer pricing and thus, dealer pricing, has not yet been set and will not until FCC Part acceptance has been completed.
