Yaesu is dropping the ftdx 9000 from their line...
have not heard what is going to replace it, they are still making the other FTDX radios...(for now)
wonder if the 9000 is going to be replaced with an sdr radio... Icom has had big hits with their two new ones...and flex and a few of the others are taking some of the elite radio business...seems like yeasu would want to protect their share of the market...
I still like the ftdx 5000 receiver, you have to spend a lot more money to get a better receiver... it is still a better receiver than either of the two new Icom intros...(though the 7300 is real nice for the money)
