I had a Yaesu ft-847 that i loved to death untill i was forced to sell it. The only thing that was really a nuisance was trying to press any of the buttons at night time when there was no lights in my qth. I am on a mission now to purchase either FT-950 or something within this price range and am interested which of these radios have illuminated buttons/controlls. Huh
