I had a problem with the TS-870 menu stuff untill I got it figured out I
had to keep the book in arms reach, I found that most of the settings are a
piece of cake after a few days of using, things like ability to PTT Amp.
and VOX sensitivity.
90% or the settings I've never touched. ??
I'm sure that with the 2000 monitoring CW sidetone is real easy once you
have found the approiate control.
I haven't used one of the 2000's rigs and they don't have some of the
features of the 870 but work for lots of people.
