Re: Which is better: TS-2000 or FT-847

My thanks to everyone who answered my request for knowledge.

That was my first suggestion, but he does not have e-mail capability, so I
went to the BBS on his behalf.

The proper role of an Area Coordinator is to say "I don't know but I will find
someone who does and get back to you". I can't answer his question but I am
printing the replies that were sent to me and will forward them to him. Then
he can make his own decision. 

Many useful replies came directly back to me as I requested, so there is more
information to pass on than what you see posted on the BBS. I can send a
summary to anyone else who is interested.
