Please pass this along to your contesting group...
Thanks for your help in figuring out what I needed in
a rig. This week I purchased a used FT1000MP. It is an
older one but in very nice shape with no mods, no
extra filters. Just a stock unit. I will do the mods
to reduce key-click etcetera. I need to pick up a few
filters to get started but am in no hurry as the
filtering is already better than my IC706 maxed with
filters. I had the rig on this evening in RX as I
soldered up a mic connector. I didn't get a chance to
get on the air but wow - that RX is great. I think I
made the right choice and didn't break the bank.
Thanks again for all the input.
de AD6ZJ, Loren
