Good to see another digital txvr on the market. As usual, hams are again the last to to embrace this new technology. If what I read in the QRZ forums and hear on the air is representative, hams are the most backwards looking, contrary and technophobic bunch I've ever encountered. But; if the hobby survives, digital voice modes will become the new standard eventually. Maybe it isn't much, but at least Yaesu put something out there. I'm glad Icom no longer has a complete monopoly on digital voice txvr's.
