It all comes down to the antenna. I have an FTDX3000 and an FTDX5000 and there is essentially no difference between the two with my antenna. - May get another antenna some day, but for now I don't have time to deal with that.Yes
I was just demonstrating that you can spend $12,000 on one radio if you want.. There's an outfit in Germany called Hilberling.. They make radios costing up to $20,000 US.
