    Thanks for the info!

    No, I haven’t received it yet. They are on back order, with an expected availability around the August to September time frame. I went ahead and ordered one thinking I’d be closer to the front of the line when they come in.

    As far as modes I plan to use, I couldn’t say. I am new to the hobby and currently only have a Technician license, with plans of course to get my General. I was initially looking for an “All Band” type radio and one that had a rugged build for portable use. I finally decided to go with the Icom IC-7200 for HF and a YAESU FT-2900R for VHF. The IC-7200 was described as “Simple and Tough”which seemed to be a good fit for my intended use.

    If you have any suggestions regarding antennas (base and portable), as well as other related equipment (antenna tuners, etc…), I’d certainly welcome them.

    Mind if I ask why you’re planning to use this instead of the built-in interface? I have an IC-7200 on order and was curious. Thanks.
