What is it with the FTDX3000 that keeps it from being a contest radio?
Don't know about RX or features, but Yaesu radios of this vintage carry
on the Yaesu tradition of CW clicks. I wouldn't want to have one as a
neighbor. A firmware update about 2 years ago improved it, but not enough.
Here's a report I put together a few years ago comparing ARRL Lab data
on a selection of radios used by contesters. The FTDX5000 is
representative of the FTDX3000 in this regard.
