Save yourself about $300 over the best Internet prices, not a bad deal at all for a pretty nice radio. Does 100W over 160m to 6m, has an internal 3:1 tuner (which is sufficient to get most cut dipoles and Hamsticks to cover a whole band without retuning), supports internal control of the FC-40 external coupler for 12:1 matching up to 600 ohms on random length antennas, 32-bit IF DSP, really a leading edge mid market rig with a very good
receiver. You would be hard pressed IMVHO to find a better radio for a grand.
