After some serious research I did buy the famous FTdx101d. With the VC tune (BP filters) and the DNR im able to hear signal I could not hear with my IC-7610 or FT-2000d. I also have the FTdx10 for portable use, but the 101d in the main shack is out standing.
The receiver has the best specs of any out there. The noise blanker works much better that others. The SSB transmitter offers enough ways to provide the best-sounding audio there is, also the EQ parametrics is also state of the art. The RF/IF speech processor is superb, but be careful, it will distort if you push it too far. Great main tuning knob.
If there is a signal there, no matter the QRM or QRN, the roofing, notch, contour filters and digital noise reduction and any combination of each, these dual receivers will pull it out for your easy listening. Big beautiful TFT display with meters, scopes, filter graphics, and menus at your fingertips.
I rated this radio a 5 star, thats why it’s also number 1 in the Sherwood list.
