Yaesu FT991 issues?
The price is certainly falling for this rig, but quite a few people have expressed disappointment. I cannot comment on these reports. Some are disappointed saying it is, “cheaply made”.
This is a trend of our age: I have noticed that M&S underpants are now thinner and not as good. My wife recently bought a coat (not M&S) and this was thinner than the one it replaced. No, making goods to fit a price seems to be the way things are today, rather than built to last. This says lots about our “consumer society”. Things are not made to last any more: they are designed to wear out or fail so we buy new items.
This is a state of affairs that ultimately cannot last.
