I found a mint looking Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark V Field on the Danish site Brugtgrej.dk where second-hand equipment is traded. The price was within my reach, and I was the first bidder. Long story short: The FT-1000MP Mark V Field transceiver now resides in my shack!

My reasons for buying this radio:
- Competition-grade transceiver
- Myriad of functions and facilities
- Recommended by the contest team I consider joining
Is there a catch when buying used equipment? Yes, sometimes. You may discovered that something is not working as expected. If minor flaws are discovered: Too bad, the sale is done. In case of major errors you can contact the seller for a price reduction or for cancellation of the sale. None of this happened to me - I am happy with my FT-1000MP Mark V Field!
