Got to ask the experts... got a fellow local ham, that proposed me to exchange my IC-706MKIIG for his Yaesu FT-897D, I use the Icom on HF mostly in FT8 modes and on V/U using FT8, MSK144, FLDIGI for cw name it, of course my SignaLink USB won't work anymore without rewiring and ordering new cable... And my other new rig since december is a nice Yaesu FT736R so... thinking of it, an all Yaesu familly... just wondering if the 2 rigs are of similar "value" for V/U contesting, PRO/CONS?
