A Workhorse Transceiver. This is a solid, hard-working and no-nonsense transceiver. It does most anything you might want and it does it well though the menus could slow you down a bit if you need to do something very fast. Got that rig brand new in 2005 and it's just plain good quality.
It is an EXCELLENT all-around transceiver with amazing receiver performances, 20khz spacing D/R of 105!, 2khz spacing D/R of 79! Doing CW and SSB is a breeze with this unit. TX power adjustment from 5 to 100W on the front panel with one button adjustment access even while you are transmitting. Read the manual and then read it again deeply and you will found a lot of capabilities which ops don't use because they don't even realize those capabilities are already there !
Got this one used with some trouble in the RX section. After having them fixed the rig revives and shows up its capabilities. Oh boys ! Brilliant ! Purely brilliant and an absolute breeze to use.
