Paging rhyary! Wire me $800 and I'd be sure to work it through its paces, just to be helpful, dontcha know.

The ICOM IC-746 is a really, really awesome all mode (CW, AM, FM, SSB, packet) 160m-6m & 2m radio (40W on AM, 100W all other modes). This radio would blow away a FT-897 and is $100 less than a new one of those. Give up battery options (no biggie) and UHF to it, but generation newer DSP and probably an order better receiver.

If I had $800 I'd be all over this one, that's pretty close to 1/2 of its new price. In fact, if someone wanted to buy my refreshed Alinco DX-70T(H) and FT-8800R for $800... :-)

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
