GREAT OLD RADIO!  Time owned: more than 12 months
WHAT I REMEMBER MOST ABOUT THIS RADIO WAS A RECEIVER THAT WAS VERY SELECTIVE.
INETERFERENCE WAS NEVER A PROBLEM.

Seems pretty good  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I had one of these mobile 10 watt radios for a few months back in 1998. Eventually traded it, plus several other radios, to get a Yaesu FT736R. I only got in on a couple of 6 meter openings with it, but it seemed to do ok. I was using it with a 100 watt amp, though.

The red LED look pretty nice, and it is a nice size for mobile work. My biggest complaint was the tuning dial. Instead of smooth tuning, it had the detented click click knob. That may be nice for mobile work, but it got old fast in the shack.

Icom IC-560 6 meters all mode  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Almost as good as my FT-847, except for low power. Good for 6m mobile op. (very strong)
