     Hi; I have owned the Ft-736 R and the Ft-847, which I am using now.
            No matter which rig you decide to buy the most important thing
           is the antenna system.
                I use KLM,s with switchers and pre amps.
              I switch my pre amps off and on from the shack.
              My 847 has a pre amp built in too.
             Nothing is better than MAST MOUNTED PRE AMPS THOUGH.
                If my 847 goes bad I will replace it with another used 847.
              I also work a lot of HF too.
               I run barefoot on HF all the time.
                I also get through all the pile ups because I have a good 
                with gain.
                 Through the years I have made over 15,000 satellite 
contacts alone.
