(OT) Ham Radio  View Printable Version 
Monday, May 29 2017

Paul, I've been using the Icom 746 Pro since 2002. Excellent radio for its price class. It hasn't been available new for a few years. Check the ham swap sites for used rigs. Should fit your needs well.Bob Galerstein WB2VGDPlains, NJ

I need some advice from my ham radio friends.
I've gotten some great opinions from several people whom have way more knowledge then I do, but I just want to open this up and see what everyone else uses.
Since I scored 74.3 percent on my technician class practice test, I want to get a base HF Transciever. Even if I can't operate on much of the HF bands, I still want to be able to listen to them.
Plus, down the line, I want the capability to transmit in HF and not have to buy another radio.
I really like the ICOM IC746Pro based upon some pretty glowing comments about it from a few people. Problem is, brand new.. it's really more then I feel comfortable spending... its anywhere between $ 800 and $ 1000.
I have no plans to do CW. My biggest concerns are GOOD audio and ability to handle weak signals really good.
I've had a few base/desktop HF listening rigs before and the audio is what I call "utility".. a bit rough, and I need better then that.
I know what I would feel comfortable with and have no problem spending, $ 500 to $ 600.
Can some folks offer some thoughts and opinions?
Regards,A Young Whipper Snapper
