    And.... it looks like it's basically an 817nd with a better battery and a TCXO...

    So the big improvement is.. 1w on each mode, plus UK bands?

    I dearly wished to see an antenna tuner on the list. Oh, or a solar charge controller, so long as I'm daydreaming. I mean, the all-in-one box must have a different meaning to different folks.

    If you have an 817 (I do not) then this is a waste of money. They should have increased screen size and added a LiFe battery.
