Sold my first 850, instantly regretted it. Purchased a second one used about 2 yrs. ago. Same great radio, excellent receiver and very easy to use. I now have a late serial number (6 series) and did have display board cap issue but easily repaired and no further problems. other than memory battery replacement. Have several other radios but keep going back to this one, a solid performer.
owned this great rig for 15 years. only one repair i caused. excellent receiver and great sounding audio. also a great cw rig with full break in,selectable filters,built in keyer.
get one if you can !
