saw it in the pictures at EstateSales.net, didn't figure it would still be there on 20% off day but it was. Talked em down to $650. Already had the matching power supply that I was using with a 706MkIIg, and I just ordered the matching speaker from an ad on QRZ just so I'll have the whole set. Have still never really gotten active or had an antenna that I could leave up, so I don't have much experience to judge, but with just a little wire around the garage for listening I've found it quite a bit better to listen to than the 706. I'm reading about it as much as I can on the 'net, heard about the couple of things that go wrong with them, will try to do what I can to prevent those. Initially I was disappointed to lose 70cm, but the truth is the only time I ever used it was to join a net that was only there in the first place to log activity on the band so we don't lose it. I still have H/T's with 220 and 440 if I feel that need. I also got a Diamond F22A 2m vertical I need to put up, along with an Ameritron 5-position coax switch that I'm sure I can find a use for someday. I think this may actually prompt me to finally get some cable through the wall and put up some wire. I think I can manage a loop around the lot, which could theoretically add up to 400 ft but half would be 6ft up, with one edge perhaps 30ft.
