Hi Don and welcome!
I for one love my scout! It beats the socks off my previous mobile
(Kenwood TS-130). The receiver and Jones filter are a fantastic
combination. I don't miss the extra 50 watts the Kenwood had AND the
simplicity makes it a GREAT rig. And the noise blanker REALLY works!
I, for one, don't mind the modules. Sacrificing the all-band for a
mixer/crystal oscillator is well worth it!
Best mobile rig I've ever had! No it's not perfect but it sure meets
