The RCI 2990 is a good radio, but this is my opinoin and just my opinion that radios with built in amplifiers are a little more finicky to run. One other thing you must consider is that if something goes wrong with the amp the radio is not usable until you get it fixed. New ones cost around $500 and to me that is a whale of a lot of cash considering what you can get in an HF
rig for the same amount of money. I shopped and shopped for my Kenwood before I purchased and I paid $255 for a TS140s. A whole lot more radio than a 2990 IMHO. If the price is right though I wouldn't hesitate to buy the 2990. If you do more AM
the 2990 performs very well in that mode. I hope that I helped.
