Re: TS-2000 a Sat Rig ??????



Hi Jon again

Yes 100% agreed.

In Sat mode it's just like an 847 from my 15mins of glory last week playing
with one.

The difference is when you're not in Sat mode. You then do have two
receivers. The main VFO does its normal thing. The added bonus is that the
sub VFO can operate as a separate RX on AM/FM on V/UHF.
