Jack Sklar KM6UNQ posted in “Workplace” that he has acquired a new Yaesu FT991A!
Congratulations are in order Jack, I know some folks say “Why now during Solar minimum” well I say get proficient now in bad conditions and imagine how much fun you’ll have when propagation is good or great. Yes Solar maximum is coming and it was in full swing when I was first licensed, imaging talking coast to coast on 10 meters during the day! That will get you really exited about Amateur radio!
It is VERY timely that our friend Eric KG4YZI from HamRadioConcepts earlier today posted a comparison between the Yaesu FT-991A vs the Icom IC-7300, I’ve posted the video below. I believe that in GOTAhams fashion WE will be able to do our own comparison (if Jack is willing to share) and see what we like about each rig. I’ll remind everyone that the GOTAhome does sport a dual band antenna for the VHF/UHF side of that Yaesu.
