I was chatting with Kent at Ham Radio Outlet in Denver and he suggested that I could buy a Yaesu FT 991 in place of the FT 857D I’ve been trying to get. In a previous post I whined that the 857D is out of stock, probably nation wide, and my current thinking is to get the 991, which has a better screen and more bells/whistles.
I’m definitely not the bells and whistles type, but I doubt I’d refuse to have them.
Other than price, anyone see a problem with getting a 991 for my truck rig?

Any luck with fleabay?
I’m a die-hard IC-7200 guy, but it’s not exactly an optimum rig for mobile applications.
I’ve considered that one too, but the screen being at an angle throws me off a bit. I’ve certainly considered it-maybe if I could get one in my hands, I would change my mind. Icon makes excellent rigs, I’m told.
It wouldn’t make a very good mobile setup, but still a solid piece of equipment.
I’m not considering the Bay- I want a new one. But I am on the Bay, looking for a nice FT 101ZD (thanks for the advice, Tom) for the house. I found a FT 101B in Newcastle and have yet to make an offer to the proverbial little old lady- don’t want to pay too much, or pay so little as to offend her family.
As for the 857D, I’ll wait till payday and call a distributor that took my name down a few weeks ago. If they sold them all in Dayton, I’ll start calling other places.
