Anyone noticed on other radio sites with a for sale section ( HRD, Radio Classifieds etc ) how many top end radio's are for sale.
I mean the amount of Yaesu FTDX 101' s etc that are newish to the market that are for sale.
Are operators buying these just to try out or are the radio's to complicated for them.
It was the same when the Icom IC-7300 hit the shelves. Some were back up for sale within weeks.
Buy a new radio and sell it in weeks you will lose a fair bit of cash ie - 7300 is £1200 ish new. You will get £800 - 900 back.
Are you not better waiting for a 2nd hand one to come up then buy to try. If you don't like then you may get most of your cash back.
And remember that ONLY Icom warranties are transferable.

Having far to much desposable income is a dangerous thing
You would think before spending 3 grand on a rig they would take their time and really make sure it is the right rig for them
