Easy there... I have a navy income to work with here. I'm looking much more toward the 718 or 75 price point than the loaded k3 price point
I had a softrock ensemble 2 which kicked ass when hooked to a top tier sound card and a top tier computer (and antenna). But i enjoy knobs and buttons! To be honest the commradio cr-1 looks intresting. I know it lacks in performance in certain regards but the portability is nice looking. I enjoy building filters and antennas so it seams like the cr-1 would play in to that nicely. Not enough info on it though to buy one.
Also, what's with the r-75 02, 12, 22 series? What's the difference?
