Yaesu FT991

As I have said several times before, there is only one commercial rig that I fancy currently and that is the Yaesu FT991 that covers all of HF plus 6m, 2m and 70cm. However the UK price is still too high so I can wait and wait until the price drops. At £999 it will get serious consideration, but not at any higher price. The only other rig I fancy is an FT817 replacement, which may come later this year. Most of my operating is QRP and a 5-10W rig would suit my needs well.

    And I think that all Land Rovers imported into the U.S. should either have a 50% price cut or come with a lifetime free maintenance agreement (based on their horrid frequency of repair record), but something tells me neither of us will get our wish anytime soon (but good luck just in case).
