Re: What Radio To Buy



I second this suggestion.  The FT8900 is the best FM radio on the market
today, and when the satellites aren't in view, you can get on 10 meter or 6
meter FM for some Eskip. The Crossband repeat is also great and will be alot
of fun in a couple of years when the F2 comes back in for 10 meters.
