Well let me tell you how I deal with the wife... I beg lol
$3500 sewing machine and all is quiet!!
It is a computerized quilting machine among other things. Top of
the line and all that. She has actually sold some quilts made with it.
So, if she's happy, I'm happy. (and I don't worry about her saying
anything about my "toys" :laugh:
AR AR AR HUMOR!!!!
considering trading for an equally nice FT-890AT(+cash or??) to better fit the camper.
I had an FT-900AT years ago and got great audio reports with the stock hand mic & Collins filter, but it got traded off and now I wish I still had it, but prefer the 890 analog meter version, I do.
Scratch that, the seller let me know that when he hooked up the radio yesterday to make sure it worked right, the autotuner decided to not work. This am it worked again, but a little later it stopped. At least he was honest about the problem. He has another one without autotune, but he's not asking for much less, and if I want a tuner, I would need to buy that seperate.
Most internal tuners with the exception of the TenTec Jupiter, will only handle
a 3:1 SWR with little problems. Some will do more.
Better to use an external tuner (I have both auto and manual tuners, but, prefer
a manual tuner as it has a much broader matching range than the auto tuners I have).
If the radio without the internal auto tuner is a good one, and at a good price, I would say go for it. IF you like it and it meets the rest of your needs.
