Recently introduced at the Tokyo Ham show.

Yaesu comes out with a new rig the FT-991, looks like the little cousin to the FT-1200 & FT-3000
and we believe it will be a replacing the earlier rigs like the FT897

The one advantage the FT 897 had was low current drain on transmit and receive compared to some other rigs, like the IC 7000.
Now that they changed to a bigger display, what's going to happen to the current drain.....going to go up?
