Hi have both the RTX and I'm very happy....

I think 847 is little better for V-UHF on SSB; transmitting on SSB with
TS-2000 in 70 or 23 cm., the output power is lower than using the same
conditions on 847.... For example, setting 10 W on 70 cm. in FT-847 I have
an output of about 7-8W, doing the same with TS-2000 I have ongly 2-3(4) W
on output, the ALC in TS-2000 seems to work a lot, like TS-790, but for
this one there is a "patch" for hacking the ALC...
