I have one of the early ts200x's and I have had no problems on 1.2 ghz.
I mainly us it for the satellites but also use it for the vhf contests
and it has always worked fine.
I have consistantly worked many in Ohio on 1.2 ghz with just a M2 at
about 30 ft.
I have also heard some others outside of Ohio during band openings
(rare but it does happen).;
I don't know where you got this idea that the receive was bad on these
The radio does have a built in preamp.
I leave it turned OFF for hf because it makes too much noise.
I leave it ON for vhf, and uhf because it does improve the ssb signals.
On 1.2 the preamp is ALWAYS on.
