Awsome receive. Nice display.All round best buy for what you get. I compare against: TS-2000 Kenwood 857D Yaesu 706 MK II G Icom Ten Tec Jupiter 897D Yaesu FT-757GX Yaesu IC-718 and a few others I can not remember.
After owning this rig for 6 months now I have found it to be very much my favorite. I work 99% CW so most of my thoughts are for this mode. The filtering is outstanding and very easy to set up and use. Chasing DX is a big part of my operating and the split work with the dual watch has become one of my most favorite of this rig. I do utilize the scope function quite often, this is one reason I purchased this rig. One thing we all know if we can't hear them we can't work them. The receiver is wonderful, or at least better than anything I have had next to my Ten Tec Omni 6plus. All is all this is a great buy for the money. I am one happy customer.
