Above is my FT-840, it was purchased in October 2002, and has seen exactly 500 QSOs, CW, SSB, and PSK. It is still a very capable and useable standard feature rig. It's stable, has a nice display, and a good useable tuning rate. I very nearly achieved DXCC with it, before acquiring the Icom 756 Pro III with it's superior receiver. The 840 will always occupy a spot on my operating desk.
