    The 990 is an expensive radio that is loaded with features and performance. It would crush any "Ham Radio Death Star" coming from Ohio, but since there is nothing coming from Ohio, the point is moot.

    No one can say that the TS-990 is not a fantastic top tier radio.

    Yeah brother!

    I can see a Dark Side master manipulating both VFO's from the across the room on a future movie set. :)

    And my QRZ settings have only featured the "Dark Shack" for years now ... it's better for my seedy yellow eyes.

    It was a saying about the next Radio to Planet Kill all the others. Originally it was slang about Ten Tec in Ohio sayin' they were going to create it. Later it has also been applied to the K4 that still is near unobtanium due to production needing it for the rector that powers the Death Star Radio...

    Then Kenwood displayed a Fully Working Death Star radio the 990s at the First Xiena ahead of the rest; boooom

    Yaesu 101DX was still a prototype under glass at that show, and I'm a Yaesu guy but think Kenwood Crushed the rest with the best. FYI Kenwood has always been more expensive then the Y&I radios that are in the same or near class.

    Example would be say 5 years ago the price the 8900 vs the V71. The V71 was a better radio and I own 2. But I also have FTM-400XDR as well...
