FT-8800 it is...I noticed something on the Alinco, or maybe it was the Icom, rig that Yaesu should SERIOUSLY consider doing. I don't recall if the rig has lit up buttons but right above the buttons on the screen is an indicator of what the button's function below is. Might require the face of the FT-8800 to be redesigned a bit but I think if they are not going to light up the buttons then they could borrow this trick to aid users in night ops
