    I use the IC718 for my HF rig. Good sold rig. Does not have a lot of the gee-wiz features and if you want any filters (say for CW) they have to be installed. Do get the DSP option, last I knew Icom was including this. I run my audio through my PC sound card for digital modes and also have audio filter programs. I installed the high stability crystal and maintain about +/- 6 Hz tolerance on frequency.
