There's no doubt on the desire to get one, I'm convinced with the recent firmware updates (the radio can do NMEA0183 now) that it does everything I'd like. But the $600 price tag is steep. I guess if I got $100 for the FT-1500 and $300 for the FT-8800, maybe I could swing it tho. Can't forget the 'extras', GPS module and programming software...
