Doesn't the TS-2000X have a birdie on the SO-50 downlink frequency?

The 736 also allows full duplex on FM or SSB birds.
The computer control on the 736 is far more limited as it is one way only
- computer to the radio only. You can't tune the radio with the knob and
have the computer know what you are doing.
The 736 has a history of power supply failures.
With all that said, I really like my 736.

> I have recently picked up both a TS-2000X and a FT-736R in a sale. I plan
on selling one as I already have too many radios. I am not real active on
the birds, but I occasionally get on, and usually work them for my club on
FD. I have done some pro/con research on these radios, and I am slightly
leaning towards the TS-2000X. I have heard that the FT-736R is a better
radio, but is it so much better that it beats all the features that the
TS-2000X has. I like the fact that it has a sub receiver so that I can work
the FM birds full duplex, and I also like that it has a full 100W on 2m. I
am thinking that if the receiver on the 2000 is deaf on VHF/UHF, I can add
a preamp. Also, I have worked the June VHF/UHF contest in the bast an am
considering working it again this June.
