Hi Gary & everyone...Thanks for the feedback on my comments re: the
I wasn't at all saying the 615 isn't a great radio. From everything
I've heard and read...it is.
It isn't a question of being able to afford a $150 radio (I'm a
ham...that equipment isn't cheap...believe me!).
To me it's a question of 2 very similar radios with one feature
difference (digital readout)....one costs $14.99 the other costs
It's a shame radio hobbyists are being so over-charged by radio
dealers and Sony.
