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...

"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
