[amsat-bb] FT-736R vs. TS-2000X

I've offered to buy the FT-736R from Chris.  But he has other's 
interested once he makes a decision on which radio to keep.  The 
radio has 144, 432, and 1200 modules.  However, I am only interested 
in 144/432 and the 1200 module would be extra cost for me.

So my question is whether anyone would be interested in buying the 
1200 module?  All is tentative depending on Chris'  figuring out what he wants.

I already have a DEMI 1296-28 25w transverter which I use on eme and 
also have a DEMI 144-1268 15w Tx converter for mode-L that I bought 
for AO-40.  I had planned to buy an FM dual-band duplex radio ($350) 
but then thought maybe spending a little more would get all-mode 
satellite capability.  I previously had a FT-847 sold in 2012.  Both 
it and IC-910H sell used at around $1K (and up) which is more than I 
wish to spend.  The FT-736R looks like a good fit for me.
