My friend who borrowed both my QRP+ and somebody else's FT-840
said the QRP+ receiver is definately better. But you have the
sequence wrong. Order the QRP+ first and then sell the Yaesu.
That way you'll have something to use during the 6-12 weeks you
wait for the QRP+.

I am thinking of selling off my Yaesu FT-840 and picking up a QRP PLUS. Have any of y'all with QRP+s used the '840 or similar rigs? I've read some of the comments on the 'plus here, and it sounds good (wish the keyer had continuous rather than discrete speed control, could use a lamp for the LCD display...) and looks really neat. Mainly I'm curious how the 'plus's receiver compares to that of the '840.

Any other comments welcome, too.

Thanks in advance es 73 de dave / aa4zx/8 nr elkins, wv
