Default Santa Was Really Good to Me

She couldn't decide if I'd Like the FT-991 or the FTDX-1200 more, so she got me both

Holy mother of Harim P. Maxim, do you get to keep both?

Was just thinking of selling my DX-70TH and FT-857 to get an FT-991, actually!

Get the 991 and don't look back, lightyears ahead of the FT-8_7 series!!! They're still menu driven but, like the FTM-400, the touch screen makes navigation sooooo easy. The receiver is almost a good as the 1200 and much better than the old 897, the signal processing make listening less tiring. C4FM is the cherry on top. Right out of the box, with no EQ tweaking, unsolicited audio reports were overwhelmingly positive. Keep the firmware updated and it's truly an adventure rig for the 21st century.

Wow. I'd love to come over some time and get a demo of what all you can do with all that super cool equipment!
