FT-990 Superb Transceiver
I'm amazed by the receiver in this radio. I hear stations that with other high end radios, they are in the noise. Other than the FT-1000D with it's 2nd RX, this could well be the best
radio Yaesu have ever built. At the present mine
has only the standard 2.4 & 500 filters, but I will be adding a 250 soon. The radio is very easy to operate, it is failsafe and only does what it should do for the modes you select. No need for cumbersome menus and multi function buttons. Just knobs and single push buttons to make things happen. Wonder why it took me so long to decided this was the one I really needed. They are built very rugged, and all reviews I've seen, last forever without giving any problems. If you can find a nice clean used one, grab it. Those that have them are keeping them, so the best may be hard to find. 73, David-AJ4FM
