Hello Jim, This is a first gereration rig, and as with all firsts there is
indeed a down side, but not down enough to stop me from buying and enjoying
the radio. You are quite correct, there is no other comparable rig for the
money. The 555 will cost you about $900 with all of the band cards. It is
not without it's own unique set of problems. I have heard they fade while
transmitting.

You will wait, and wait and wait, for the rig to be delivered,but it is
worth it.
