Hardware Versions
« on: 2012-05-10, 13:26:44 »
I am interested in knowing the differences in hardware versions and capabilities, specifically between the DualRX versions ... at this point can a hardware version 5 do everything that a version 6 and 7 can or are there specific limitations as new things are introduced? I am asking because I am getting ready to purchase and was thinking of purchasing a used set but it appears that it is the hardware version 5 and I dont want to buy something that is outdated. Thanks for any insight in this matter.

So in looking at that table, it is saying that if I bought a used set that was a hardware version 5 then I wouldn't be able to use it with the FT-857 with the remote head? Because you have to have a V7 to do that?
