Well, I got some interesting answers to my original inquiry about the FT-2000
vs. Orion II.
In one I was told to check out the Omni VII. So, lets toss that in to the
equation too. I didnt consiter it because it seems like Ten Tec concentrated
on the internet controllability rather than true high-end performence. Does
anyone have real-world experience with this, either they own it or have used
it extensively that can share what they know?
In another I was told the FT-2000 has had some problems with RX overloading.
Was this with or without MTU's hooked up?
Another mentioned the new K3. I know Elecraft really hit it right with their
K2 for a compact HF rig, the K3 just seems like an improvement over the K2. Is
it really a competitor in the high-end rig game? If, in fact, it does.. I
would rather pay less than $2k than ~$4k HI.
Now.. someone mentioned the IC-7800. I know this is a nice rig and have been
told by a friend who has a dx9000D that its better. BUT... theres no way Im
going to be able to afford a rig of that expense. I know its an investment,
but Im going to really be pushing it with any of the others as it is.
I am personally kinda going towards the FT-2000, but I want to know from
people that actually use these rigs what they think. Has anyone out there used
the FT-2000 side-by-side with any of the other higher end rigs? Specifically
the Orion II? Also, what difference is there in recieve with the FT-2000 by
itself vs. with an MTU? If Im listening to a faint CW signal what am I going
to notice with the MTU on vs. off? lower band noise? higher signal strength?
