I'd say $3,000 for a non-contest model
Just an opinion here, but I think a huge part of why big/heavy/expensive radios are dropping in price is because you spend a mint just to ship them anywhere for sale, or repair.
You buy a massive radio like the FTDX9000 -- what do you do if it's in need of repair? Shipping that back is probably between $200 to $250 or more, one-way!
Imagine the nightmare of buying a new one that had something wrong?
