I beleive that these reflectors & other discussion groups for specific
tend to bring out the worst for their repective equipment.

Think about it, regardless of who owns whatever brand of Ham rigs,
it's mostly the relative unfortunate few owners of the faulty, "buggy"
equipment that need to expose their woes for help.
**After all, if one's rig is doing OK, then the tendancy is not to
mention this fact.**

One example, is Ten-Tec.  Their HF rigs are good and rugged with very few
problems and generally excellant technical support.
However, should one do an extended tour of the Ten-Tec reflectors and
groups, as I have done, then one may possibly assume that Ten-Tec is
Which is not so for perhaps 90% or more of the many satisfied Ten-Tec
It's the same for Yaesu equipment, and I suspect the same for ICOM.
Has anyone mentioned Kenwood?
