I ordered my id-51a. The question is now that you have used one for a while are you glad you upgraded to this radio from the previous dstar radios? Ex ic92 or ic91 or ic80
I have read various reviews but was just wondering if this was the right move.
Yes I sold my 92ad to fund the id51.
Thanks

Yes, the ID-51A, aside from the lack of the DTMF keypad is a far superior radio indeed! The receive audio is leaps and bounds better than the IC-92AD, overall operation is smooth and easy, the CS-51 software is also more intuitive as well. You definitely made the right choice for a D-Star radio indeed....

one of my favorite bits on this radio is the micro SD card slot, lots of possibilities with this, wish my IC80 had this, still with all that said, I'm getting the 880 as a mobile/base, the cloning capabilities and the price are the reason for me, and the 400 dollar price tag doesn't hurt either
