Ok, u r on the Ten Tec reflector so expect good words abt

them.  Here is my list in order of best to lesser:

OMNI ONE used.... best buy in ham radio today.

Elecraft K3... the options really run up the $$$.

Yaesu FT-1000MP used, next and cheaper.

FT-1000MP Mark 5 used with new roofing filter.

Pro 3 used, but it wears out fast, so watch the used market.

FT-2000 new may be too much $$$ but very very feature rich.

Any new NEW Ten-Tec due to big improvements over earlier models.

FT-950 and especially FT-450 (note this is Yaesu, not Kenwood)

are good buys and the FT-450 is a LOT of radio for the price.

ICOM 746 Pro (new only) is not too bad for what it is.


NO to the TS-2000 and
Any other Kenwood, and I mean it.

Why buy an old Icom or TS-950 when OMNI 1 is better?

The FT-1000D is great but no computer control possible.

Spend until it hurts because you deserve to have a

superior radio for the long haul.  U will be so glad

u went up a little more, as per above, over the years

to come.  GL  73
