You would do well with it .

I went ahead and bought one for Christmas, a present for me since I've been so good. I really like it, the receive is great and I've had nothing but great audio reports. Now if it will just not exhibit any of the bad habits that others have reported but even if it does, I'll just get it fixed and go on. For the price and all it would still be worth it. I think I'll use my old 857D for mobile and 5th wheel use as well as backup.

I had a chance to buy a nice 746 pro with all of the filters last year and still kicking myself for doing not it. It was a goo price too...but I had just bought my FT897D and antenna for the truck...figured, the XYL might have a cow over that.

Tom, post a time and we can try to make contact this weekend. Week or so back I could not pull out FL, but had a tremendous report from DFW on 40M.
