I like it.
It is the same "form factor" as the Elecraft KX3 but, to me, the Elecraft looks a bit "agricultural".
OK I know the KX3 has a good RF circuitry but this has 6, 4, 2 and 70cms.
IMO this is what the Yaesu FT818 should have been.
To me the 817 / 818 has too small a screen and tiny knobs and buttons.
Would I swap my 817 for one? Seriously thinking about it
