Dear Bob,

the ICOM IC 7800 has a true "dual receive" and you can set so many controls
separately on each receiver; it's amazing... even if this is not a SO2R

In order to own one I sold my FT 1000 MKV; the YAESU transceiver has a
second receiver whose usability is very low and far away from that of the IC

Frankly no comparison under no circumstance; IC 7800 is king on "dual

73's from Italy...

Claudio, IK2DZN

Is the FT-1000D the only rig that has true dual receive or does the
FT-1000MP and FT-1000MPMKV also have this?

Or does any other make and model have it now also. I have tried to search
for "dual receive" but am not getting clear information on

Too many advertise they have it, which I know already that don't from other
things you guys have said before.

I am considering a rig for contesting but want one this time around that has
the true dual receive.

  73 fer nw,

Code may be taking a back seat for now,
but the pioneering spirit that put the code
there in the first place is out front of it all.
