    I've got one of each that had been stashed for future projects. Was thinking maybe in this one but not sure which of the 2.

    Just curious as to how you tre-797 owners are liking the little rig. I've yet to put any use on mine as life has been busy. Other than initially testing it for proper operation, it still sits in the box next to the bench.

    Nice radio. It had no issues strait out of the box which was a surprise. Added roger beep to the NB switch. People on ICOM 7300s say its off frequency.

    Hopefully mine will get set up on the station soon to see if it'll shine. Not expecting a powerhouse by any means but simply to add something new.

    I’ve never been impressed by any galaxy/RCI product. There are far better sideband rigs for sure. For loud AM maybe they’re ok, but that’s not what I’m into.

    Does your 979 have the default roger-beep as the DX 979F?

    HI Recon,
    I think they're the same. In order to change the tone of the roger beep, a resistor of a different value is substituted.

    I received my 979F a few days ago and I was fortunate the radio shop installed a on/off toggle switch on the back of the radio so as I can decide if I want to use the roger beep.
