    Sure hope it comes with the 11 meter selection on the band switch like my present FT-101EE. Don't wanna have to be pulling any illegal CB mod...I mean "MARS/CAP" mod!

    re: "What do the design engineers hope to accomplish with a 200 watt transmitter marketed to US shores? 35 to 50 watts "

    Maybe you missed the part where it delivers about 75 Watts in the ultra-low IMD Class A bias mode ... then again, maybe you didn't. Reading for comprehension goes a long ways sometimes in catching those fine details, not that I always practice that methodology either ...

    Maybe you make too many assumptions my friend….one, that the deciding factor in purchasing a transceiver for most operators is the inclusion of a Class A bias mode and 2, that I was interested enough to read beyond the initial three sentence post.

    Hmm, ultra-low IMD mode, makes one wonder just how pure their non-Class A mode really is when they have to strip away nearly 2/3 of its output power to meet the standard. Funny how you won’t find a “Class A button” on the offerings of the two preeminent manufacturers of SDR radios, Flex and Elecraft. Oh but then again, Yaesu is touting it as a “High-Class” transceiver. This, along with a plate of caviar and a string of polo ponies gets you heard ‘round the world. Too bad the namesake had to muddy its progenitor, the legendary FT-101 line, a very disrespectful use of nomenclature indeed!

    re: "Maybe you make too many assumptions my friend ..."

    Reading for comprehension makes points, not doing so, well, I'll leave that go ...

    My observation, in writing, was based more on supposition rather than assumption. Take this opportunity re-read what I posted - my words are still above. Note also I, myself and I on occasion fall 'victim' to the practice of not reading for comprehension. I'm glad we are both working to clear up these misunderstandings.
