Just to keep people updated, the radio gods have smiled on me today. I was
unable to win the auction for the 471H that I was eyeing up, but by some
strange luck I happened to catch a 475A on eBay for an unexpectedly low
price with only a couple minor non-performance issues.
I'm so excited to have the (arguably more important) half of my dream setup
fall into my lap! It'll be very nice to be able to have the RX side
computer-controlled - I've already built a CI-V interface for programming my
mobile so I'm ready to go.
