Well, fortunately, they were right! There is NO comparison in price of the 
two, and I would really like to see a sub $1000 Kachina (sounds like a 
mouse sneeze!) do anything even remotely close to the Pegasus... The fact 
that TT embarrassed them in the price arena is no small feat... This coming 
from a HAM that hates radios that require a PC.  Gimme a 12volt car 
battery, a straight key, and a piece of wire, and let me work the world! 
And, oh yes, PLEASE let it be an Omni! Well, ok, that 705 mic on 10 meters 
is fun too!
