Early Xmas Present


W4MUF Jimmy Moser
 

Decided to treat myself to a early Xmas present. Bought a Yaesu FTDX-10 txcvr.
Had an ICOM 7300 before and was intending to stay with the ICOM family but they
don't have anything comparable. Thought about the ICOM FT101 but could not justify the $3000
price tag. Maybe if I  was a contestor I could but... no.

Really like this radio. The receive function seems somewhat better than my 7300 and I can route the display to
a much larger external monitor. It also has a much better Digital Noise Reduction system on the this radio
compared to the 7300.

Did you look at the Yaesu FT-710?
I wanted your opinion, I am pending a purchase on that or the one you purchased. 

Thank you
