 > I would rather carry around
an $1100 radio than a fully loaded K3 worth close to $4000.

         But a K3 doesn't need to be fully loaded.  A basic K3/100
for $1850 will run large circles around an IC-7200...and it even
weighs 4 pounds less.  That's without additional roofing filters
beyond the stock 2.7k (I'm guessing the IC-7200 only has a 15 kHz)
or an ATU (which the 7200 also lacks).
