FT991 multi-mode, 160m-70cm all mode transceiver
The first UK price looks like around £999 from Nevada who expect stocks spring/summer 2015. This is more than I was expecting.
This image is the best I could find. The image is located on the Universal Radio site in Ohio and the link to the image will be removed if this is a problem.
I would consider investing in this transceiver, but would be looking for a better price. The FT450D is currently £699 in the UK (even less at MLS £619.95 according to G1KQH) I wonder if they will spin out an FT817 replacement based on the FT991 design? I am sure there would be a good market for a 5-10W version here in the UK.
GBP 999, that’s almost $1,600 USD. Outrageous.
I am afraid we are ripped off on amateur radio prices in the UK. It is usually the pound for dollar syndrome.Many prices are the same to the nearest penny from many dealers. This is why I often buy from abroad.
