Back on the air after 25 yr hiatus.  Considering a new Ft950 or used 756Proll from known source,  Both aprox $1400. Enjoy cw dx, ssb ragchew and no serious contesting. Thoughts??  Thanks.

I would go with the Yaesu FT950, the key word is New.

Both are second tier radios. Since you don't do serious contesting either should be ok.

I would go with the FT-950.

I'd probably go with the 950 as well...the advantage of the PROII is its spectrum display, which is a costly option on the Yaesu.

If you don't really care about that, the 950 (new) is a better deal.

Appreciate the input. Don't know if I'm really comparing apples and apples, but when three replies say go new, then new it is. Thanks guys.
