    Dave, I really appreciate your videos. Great job and keep it up. Just watched #199- Great job at explaining the price points. I am one of the K3 aficionados. First time I bought a NEW HF radio (back in 2010) and it has been worth it. I have recently upgraded everything worth upgrading, so I now have a K3 half-ess radio! I don’t have the 2m or the 2nd receiver, but otherwise it’s loaded and I have the P3. That brings it to nearly $6000 invested and that’s a LOT of money, but I’m finally at a place where I can afford that. However, you are correct, the 7300 is really the best bang for your buck and I can see why it’s taken the HF market by storm. I recently traded with a friend for a few weeks so we could both get familiar with each other’s radio. I was impressed. NM3A

    Hi Dave,
    As always, thanks for the GREAT Info. I have older radios but bought the ICOM 7300 and I love how modern and upgraded they are!
    Thanks!
