FT-897 info for VK2TXT



Paul,
I bought an 897 and returned it after 2 days.  I did not try to use it for
satellites, but it was the worst rig I have ever used on HF.  The list of
deficiencies was endless.  It's just not a user friendly piece of gear at
all, and, with all the manipulations you need to make whicle using the
birds, that is a prime consideration.  

Good luck with your choice.

73,
Tony, N2UN
