Trying to choose an HF rig

    So, I’m 90% sure that the finals just went in my FT-301d today.  Not entirely sure why, I had a 1:1 match on my antenna (power dropped to nothing in the middle of an ft8 contact and I just couldn’t get it back), but c’est la vie and it gives me a chance to browse a bit.

    One of the rigs that I’ve been looking at is the FT-897, which I like a lot from the online reviews, but would like to see before I buy one online.

    Does anyone have one that they wouldn’t mind me playing with a little bit to see if it’s for me?
