Since being New to this Reflector and not looking at too many of the 
past posts, I would like to know, which transceiver that people would 
recommend for 160 meter DX Use?

I must admit I am confused by the Reports in QST or Sherwood, or Eham, 
(little Faith), on what would be the Transceiver to get for 160?

Elecraft has Great Specks, (K2), Have Not seen K3.  TenTec Orion II and 
OmniVII  Look Fantastic.  And of course IC-7800 From ICOM.

I have Left out the FT-2000 and the ICOM 756PROII  because I noticed 
that the Technical Reviews are being done by people that are neither 
contesters or 160 Meter DX operators.  This is not to say that I do not 
respect their point of View, but I am looking for recommendations from 
the TOPBAND Group that Operate 160.  Sorry for the Long Email.  But 
before I plunge into a Rig that is just for the casual DX'er I would 
like to hear from this Group.
