I am thinking to streeeeetch my budget to get the FTDX3000, but to do so I will have to buy it stateside, then ship it back via the airline (to save money) with me in a few months. Meanwhile, there is a guy locally near my QTH selling a Yaesu FT-1000MP that looks to be in very good shape (he claims it is excellent). It looks like a really nice radio, and it's going for about 800 bucks. The FTDX3000 will be closer to $1,400. I have never operated either, but I love the DSP on the FTDX3000 (a friend has one). I am not yet sure what filters are in the MP. Pretend it's full of filters... then what would your thoughts be? I will add that I am at a very high noise city QTH with lights and electronics all around. I have an Icom 7300, but it's not blocking the high noise well, and that is really hurting me on the low bands, especially.
