KN4KAZ here- hoping to get a second Icom 5100 for my Bronco. Would love to find someone local(ish) to help me with some of the functions.

The 7300 is the only Icom that I have, everything else is Yaesu. I am hopeful that I will have my Bronco by the end of the summer and I will be putting out some YouTube videos regarding radio mounting, power distribution and antenna placement.

I like it. I use the APRS functions, the menu is pretty easy to navigate once you understand which programmed keys do what. I do wish it had soft keys that indicated its function. Pretty important to make sure your functions work the same on both radios or you will find yourself switching talk around on instead of ho/med /low power for example. I prefer the yeasu for its great aprs features and the ability to text or email via the radio, a feature the AnyTone does not have, but the DMR is easy to use and very functional. It is also really not used much, so you don’t have to spend a bunch of time listening to people ramble on and on when you just need a quick call out.

Haha, I'm having fun with the same thing I always have fun with in a new vehicle. Trying to figure out where to put everything so it's unobtrusive as possible.

KK7SM by the way. :)
