Bargains – really?

Many of the larger dealers are offering special deals in the lead up to Christmas. But, are you really getting a bargain? For example, MLS have the FT1200 at less than £1000 after cash back. Maybe this radio is over-stocked as people prefer the IC7300 or the FT991?

Call me a cynic, but I think we are being offered discounts on radios that have not sold. As they say, “beware of Greeks bearing gifts”. If something looks too good there is probably a catch. Of course, if you really want one of the discounted rigs then now is as good a time to buy as any.
