My reviews & stories

Great rig

Yaesu FT-1000D, Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

I bought this when it was new. It is tough and functional. Heavy, because it was designed for the Israeli military. Not gonna replace it in spite of all the fancy rigs available now.

Mint condition in 198?

Great rig

Yaesu FT-1000MP Mk V, Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

I have had this since it was new on the market, it is bulletproof. In its day, the finest rig on the market. Originally built to Israeli MIL-Spec.
Heavy, and that's why. Add outboard DSP and you can't go wrong. It's my last rig, in spite of what's on the market now.
