My old Yaesu FT897D is getting long in the tooth.  It's developing some issues that have me doing research on newer "DC to Daylight" rigs.  (Display is slowly dying, FM squelch no longer works...)
Right now the front runners are the Icom 7000, the Icom 7100, and the Yaesu FT991A.   Currently, I'm leaning toward the 991a.
Anyone care to share their experience and opinions?
My use will be almost exclusively Rover and Field Day type portable use.
