Ok so you're shopping for a new dual bander and you want 50 watts on both bands and you want digital, Yaesu is having a sale on the FTM-400XDR, problem is they don't have any in stock and I think they are "playing this up for the sale" or are just not building them fast enough. What do you think? I think they are doing this because of the sale they are having for some reason......... Anyway, so you want a rig and don't like to wait so who is going to win here? The ICOM ID-5100 will give you 50 watts, loads of features like the Yaesu and is the same price. I like Yaesu, but they blew it on this deal! What you think? moral of the story, if you're going to have a sale, have the radio in stock fools!
