Which base radio station are members using ...? What do you enjoy about it .. (Features, etc) ? What Power supply (affordable is good)? Microphone? Accessories? Why? Seems like many members on the 805 morning talk, have the Yaesu 991a and really like it. A few own the Icom 7300 and say THEY LOVE IT. It's beginning to sound like the presidential debates. Neither radio is cheap. I figure, at my age, this will be my first and last ham radio purchase ... so .. I want something with longetivity (well ..at least as long as I'm kicking). I love my handhelds (Yaesu 70dr and the Anytone 878), but when I first thought about learning more about ham, these weren't my priority. Matter of fact, I didn't know digital and repeaters existed till I joined the morning talk group.
