Which for you gents with more experience would go for. Option 1 Rig is IC-V8000 75Watter plus Comet Prestige 11db gain 7 meter in length (problem in too much length against air/typhoon). Option 2 Rig is IC-V8000 75Watter plus Diamond F23 8+db gain 4 meter in length. Option 3 Rig is IC-2200h 50Watter plus 50input-200Watter output Linear amplifier plus Diamond F23 8+db gain 4 meter in length. My bottomline is, cost, power to value ratio and which is a more sound setup. Because my current setup is a IC-2GXAT 7Watter hooked up to a Mirage 35Watter with Diamond ICH-77 'charlie antenna'
