Ok, so we have a new "uber rig", that when the figures are looked at, the radio that uses the SUB receiver as it's basis (TS-590) gives BETTER figures than it mega brother, then something, somewhere needs looking at.
Personally,I think Kenwood released the 990 a WEE bit to early, due to market pressure.
I know four friends who bought, and three have sold.
How close to purchase price are they getting?
I wonder if there is some Firmware issue that needs resolved? Or is it an example where all the money was spent on making the rig look "cool" which is debatable also.
