Nothing comes close in FM and its also very good in SSB.
FM has 3 triple conversion RX and Normal and narrow FM filters.
Easy to use Sat mode switch for Doppler correction.
I have owned both Yaesu FT-736R and the Icom IC-910.
Yaesu FT-736R vrs IC-910
Easier to use.
Doppler correction very easy.
25 watt output make it easy to pair up with external amps.
FM Rx great, plus the narrow FM filters (great for city work)
Does not require external Pre-amps, as does the 910.
Cost 50% to 75% less than a 910
