There are so many buttons and knobs on the FT-6000, that it looks worse then using sub-menus.
Even spending $2500 for a K3 makes me pause. But an extra 30db of 2kHz blocking over the Mark-V is very significant. It may actualy be worth the money for some performance. And you don't have to spend an extra $5K for 4 meters, 100 knobs, and a silly map of the world that I can see on my Ipod or PC.
Still, $2500 is $83.33 per DB. But I do want to try that function that lets you send PSK and RTTY by converting the CW you send with your paddles. Now that is cool.
It was a joke guys! Ya know, sense of humor stuff? No red blooded American boy would trade a radio for Farrah
Farrah was never that good looking in my book-Big Teeth and TOOOO skinny
Go look at Cindy Margolis-now that a Babe I think -all the right
fillings everywhere .
Ye Olde Tale Tellers Nursing Home.....
You obviously were not a 14 year old boy when Farrah was an Angel.....
Speaking of Babes of the 70's......
WKRP's Baliey was Hot...Loni was not
Giligans Mary Ann was the bomb....Ginger was a dud.
Valery Bertinelli was and still is a goddess.
Mr. Kotter was married to a total babe, Mrs. Kotter
Wonder Woman.....Linda Carter...need I say more? That old bag still looks awesome.
We know it was a joke, just adding more poor humor.
I understand the convenience of having a great performance all-in-one transceiver, but to save some money and possibly get even better RX performance, would a Software Defined Radio receiver (used in conjunction with your current TX) not be a better option than replacing your entire radio?
I'm doing this to "upgrade" my Icom IC-7000 - I haven't received it yet, so I don't know whether it's gonna work as well as I hope, but for £250, it's worth a punt.
A Perseus would be an upgrade to an IC-7000 receiver, but what you are buying for £250, I don't know.
You still have to deal with switching between TX/RX, and tuning a separate TX/RX. Doesn't sound very convenient.
The Perseus is $1200 in the USA, and for a little more money you can buy a K3 and also have a transmitter, buttons, knobs and use it with or without a PC.
I don't see where you will save much money with a Perseus.
