    Looks like the plastic stereo I had in 1972. I liked it then because plastic was affordable as a kid.
    46 years later, not so much....

    If they offer a 7710 in a SDR, that would be very interesting. Hmm.....

    What do the design engineers hope to accomplish with a 200 watt transmitter marketed to US shores? 35 to 50 watts is all that is needed to drive most modern amplifiers to their full output. The difference between 100 and 200 watts is barely perceptible in real-world conditions, and certainly won’t be of much help in large pile-ups or contests either.

    Not an SDR - it's a traditional transceiver with SDR functionality. A true SDR has no knobs.

    Yeah but a TRUE radio HAS KNOBS!! ;)

    I'll be watching this one closely. An extra 100 watts might not mean much in the real world but it's still more than you'd have without it.

    I'll be very interested to give it a serious try when it arrives at the local HRO.

    They forgot the one thingee that made all the success of the FT-101 xx,
    That way cool VFO KNOB, dead center with the case and the unbreakable
    Spinner mini knob on it's edge. Not to mention this new one doesn't glow in
    the dark. I always liked the concept of the VFO tuning backwards on adjacent
    bands too!

    Why do yet ANOTHER 100w HF/6m unit and confuse everyone? And why announce yet another expensive field test unit without a price?
