My best transceiver   Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Have owned many rigs over the years and presently use an SDR 100 watt unit from Flex Radio. I love the SDR radio but it is too bulky and takes time to hook up since we use it mostly when traveling to WV where the elevation is 2,600 feet. Yes, the 9100 is rather heavy for it's size but wow, all bands are available and we enjoy using the 1296 internal unit for CW and SSB operations. By using a long yagi type beam on 1296, we have made some very good contacts. The 9100 is not recommended for mobile operations unless it is portable operations since the 9100 would have to sit on a seat or outside the vehicle on a table.
I have no complaints at all with how well the 9100 works even though some controls are rather small for my big fingers. Try one, you will like it for sure.
Product is in production.
