I have a fully optioned 736. Love the radio. Yes, there are
limitations, especially with the computer control, being a very early
implementation, but it's still a nice radio. Power supply died years
ago, but I run it off 13.8V DC, so not an issue for me.

Me too. I even have a remote base system that works around some of the
limitations of the 736's computer control.
