Old but useful


Bought on the auction market as a backup rig. I like the receive quality. Rig drifts for about the first 30 mins after turning it on. This is a known problem and a fix is available for the tech savy. Keeping in a box for emergency use only as my Yaesu FT-840 and ICOM IC-735 out perform this rig substantially.
