I want to thank ALL the replies I got via email about the 990. Seems it
should be a top notch rig when it arrives. And to answer a few of your
questions it has the standard Yaesu 2.4 SSB filter and the 2.0 is INRAD and
500 CW Filter is also INRAD.  I see the radio is rated at 100W output but I
have seen reports of 125-150W out. Can I get a view on a realistic output ?
I'm planning on driving a SB-220 with the rig. Which brings me to my next
questions...  How is the keying relay accessed on the 990 ? Is there some
special plug I need to get or is there a RCA plug to use for amp keying.
Thanks again for all the replies, over 30 , and they helped in my choice.
