    Got mine last weekend too - tweaking parameters for time being and a bit of learning as well
    Will be my mobile and for SOTA activation when 10W from KX2 will not be sufficient.

    There is no shortage of menu options, but the majority are the "set it and forget it" type.

    Sure but compared to FT-897D or FT-817ND is quite different and there is lot of welcomed functionalities like a voice keyer - I feel I will like it :)
    Shall try it on the air tonight.

    Indeed it worked of course - just need to learn how to efficiently mitigate band noise

    SDR transceivers I am used to are doing good job in this area

    Do you own the IC-7300?

    Great video, Craig!! I want one of the 891's myself, and plan to go mobile/portable with it. Not having VHF/UHF is not an issue for me since I have an 8800 for those bands. Thanks again for the demo vid!! And THANK YOU!! for your service and sacrifice to our country! 73 de N5NUK.

    Thank you for taking the time to watch and for the comment! Hopefully you will be able to pick up an FT-891 in the very near future!

    No. I have Flex-6300 and KX2, but I was targeting IC-7300 initially.
    Just Icom was not fast enough for me to bring it to the market when I was ready to buy it (end of 2015).
    Thus other choice made. But I like IC-7300 very much too.

    I just purchased a ft-891 I've been trying to get an LDG tuner to work it is (YT-100) I can seem to get to work. I'm using the CAT cable and the optional cable with the red end into the radio. The tuner just blinks. I was told by HRO that this tuner is compatible but I don't see any information about making it work with the FT-891. Anyone running an LDG tuner with this radio?
