Hi Patrick, thanks for the quick reply. That was the answer I was looking for. Also the recording function is a bonus....

I have used the 817/D74 pair for the SSB birds. All-mode RX
in the D74 is much better than the TH-F6A. Just have to 
adapt to a VFO knob that isn't (relatively) large and smooth
turning as the 817. You can also use the D74's recording 
function so you don't forget who you work. Make sure
the recorder is set for the VFO you use for SSB RX.

Good luck, and 73!

  Has anyone paired a D74a with say a FT-817 to work the  linear birds portable? I'm thinking of picking one up to have the SSB receive capability(or visa versa). I remember years ago trying this with a TH-F6A and was really disappointed in the wwiiddddeee receiver performance. Is the D74a able to rx a 3k wide sig properly? Just trying to make sure before I pull the trigger...
