I like it.
It is the same "form factor" as the Elecraft KX3 but, to me, the Elecraft looks a bit "agricultural".
OK I know the KX3 has a good RF circuitry but this has 6, 4, 2 and 70cms.
IMO this is what the Yaesu FT818 should have been.
To me the 817 / 818 has too small a screen and tiny knobs and buttons.
Would I swap my 817 for one? Seriously thinking about it

I have a 818 and I prefer it being rugged for portable use ... it really is a solid rig and something with a touch screen I would be thinking it's too delicate and mother it more . Have they anounded a date or price for the uk ?

I do fancy one

March next year is a fairly solid arrival date. Price is less so but supposedly about a thousand.

Assuming it can be opened up for 11m I certainly fancy one as well.

£1200 seems to be the price. I think I will give it a while before I get involved - I want to get a new tent first I think and that is going to be a few bob.
