I haven't really been paying attention to them, but MTC has been sending me Black Friday e-mails almost every day. The sales are going on the rest of the month.

I was at hro Saturday and their in store sign said 1/2 off lowest price on their cable/wire scrap table was part of their black Friday specials. It said to check back Fri for more deals.

I am waiting on HRO to drop the prices on the 7300 and/or the 590SG.

I plan to add one or the other to the stable before new years.

HRO signage on their website advises pre-black Friday sales end on 11/24 @ 11:59pm. Suggesting that Moar savings await for Friday 11/25.

Needing the Yaesu 7900R or the Kenwood TM-v71a to take a major dump on price!!!

MTC has the Yaesu 7900R for $250! Best price I've seen. Holding out to see what HRO will do.

Admittedly I'm a tightwad, but if I could find that kenwood v71a bit cheaper I might spring for it.
Link Posted: 11/24/2016 5:19:01 PM EDT
I don' t know about you but *IF* I was willing to spend ~$3000 on a radio a discount of $70 and a hat just would not be the tipping point to get me to pull the trigger.
Knock 10% off of accessories or upgrades and then the finger on the trigger might get itchy.
I am watching for discounts on desk mics, headsets & rig runners. I'm finding that I really do need that 4008 instead of a pair of 4005H. So I'm considering a 4012.
And this radio: https://baofengtech.com/uv-50x3
I like my V-71 radios. I like my ft-7800. I really like the display on the ft-2800 that I have mounted on my dash.
But the uv-50x3 looks to have the only dual band display that I can easily read while driving around mountain curves.

Been thinking about getting a reasonably priced red-dot scope or a holographic sight. Will see if anyone has deals tomorrow.
I have way too many ham radio toys.

Daym. FTM-3100 looks attractive for $117. I may get one and give it to my dad as a New Year's gift.

BTW, do you know anyone looking for a TS-520 in great shape?

Dang, man. I appreciate it. I'm gonna call Richard tomorrow if they're open and see what kind of deal he can make me on shipping for a TM-D710G. I've been eyeballing the TM-V71, but if I snake a hundred or two from another (frivolous) budget item, I can swing the $505 price on the 710 with your coupon!

I've been thinking about getting one of these. That price is a good reason to get one. It's on the way!

Daym, I was looking at HRO Web page and noticed they have a new FTDX3000 for $1529. This is a killer deal for a superb radio with a top notch receiver.
If anyone is looking for a high performance rig, this is it. You won't find a better rig in this price range. Just wanted to mention this in case someone is looking.
My dad really, really wants one. I'd get one for him but money is tight now. I told him that if he flies over, from across the "pond" to visit me, he can have my radio. I'll just have to use my old FT1000mk5.

It seems to me that everyone has about the same price. $18xx and then a $300 mail in rebate.
