2019/April 17. UPDATE. I have been working many stations now with this radio and it is absolutely the best radio I have ever owned. I love the noise reduction DNR.
I sold my FT-1000 MARC-V. I loved this radio, but sometimes you want something new.
2015/December 2. Thanks John NG0Z for sending this recorded qso from Minneapolis Minnesota: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7VOQ5I6-xs. Very much appreciated!
2015/July 4. Got a new toy to play with. A FT-950E in great condition. Made some very nice QSO’s with it and it together with the FT-1000MP MarcV my shack looks complete. I ordered a CAT cable and a panadapter cable so I soon can connect it to the computer together with Hamradio deLuxe and HDSDR.
