Is this an actual SDR or is it superhet that's down-converted to 9 MHz or something to that effect?
Did you miss the USB connector? (Or 'port')
I've been using an ICOM 775DSP -- two radios and 200 w. Right next to it is a Yaesu 897D and a 706 MKII. The extra half of an S unit that the 775 provides makes a real difference, no doubt about it. Lots of folks can't use an Amp but can use 200 W into a wire. Good for Yaesu. If they price it better than Icom's 7610, and if it works as well or better, it will take the lead. The 100 watt version will have to be a lot better than the ICOM 7300 and sell for around the commonly available price of $1,000 to make a difference. The standard to beat is the Apache Labs ANAN-8000DLE or Elecraft's K3S
If you don’t break pileups with 100w ..... the same result with 200w. Better add one element to your antenna system.
200 watts just feels better...
Yaesu new model provides good "propagation" Kenwood,Icom no...that's the tip...
Sounds like a winner
Inevitable and welcome progress
Wait until Ten Tec releases the 300 watt Uranus.
That will be the game changer.
A real game changer would be a FTDX-101ee with plug in boards and board extenders!
