    How many people in your local club own a 7300? More than a few, I'd suspect, and I'm pretty sure they would let you take it for a spin--and offer their experiences. That's how. :)

    I could probably just as easily take one for a spin at a HRO, but until I am able to use one at my own location, hooked up to my own antenna, and able to use it for more than a few minutes, I'm still not going to be able to tell if I really like it. But I admit, I am more anal than most. ;)

    Is your band noise a S4 or lower? I am about an S3 except 75 meters at night- about S6. Radio reported to work well with low band noise.

    Depends on the band and the time of day. It can be higher than that for sure.

    To be important you need a 7300. To be more important you need more than one. So..allot of them...

    That's about as optimistic as that sign you see on the highway that says "End Road Work". Yeah, right. ;)

    I sold my IC7300 recently (18 months old) for € 850. The reasons are:
    a) noise box;
    b) SDR is not equal to IF-sampling concept;
    c) too small.

    I was undecided between Icom 7851 and Hilberling PT8000A. Since service is in Germany available, I bought the Hilberling....
