New Yaesu HF/VHF SDR Transceiver ( FTDX-101D )

Looks as though Yaesu have broken cover with this new offering. Listed as covering HF and 50Mhz. However, the eagle eyed amongst you may spot the 70/Gen button on the band selector, so looks like this could be Yaesu's first HF transceiver to also cover the 4m band.

I'm very interested in this one but i want to wait and see what the initial feedback is before committing. Been burned before buying early production runs from Yaesu.

Does anyone have any idea of final price? It's got be £2K+ I would have thought. My money is around the £2400 mark.

I think same £2500,I got one of the first 7300s even got a certificate from Icom 4th one into Uk,that was fine but like u say the 991 was more hassle than anything.Al see what happens,am sure if I wait there will be plenty jump in after me.

Also someone who tests receivers independently says the new Yaesu and Kenwood r not true Sdr radio's like the Icon 7300.The guy is on YouTube and is highly respected.Will try find his details but there's more information on Ham radio deals if u r on their.
