Great shack in a box
Review by NI6B
I've owned several shack in the box radios and this is the best! Audio (TX and RX) sounds great! Easy to use and the performance is great! Don't care for the background colors in the display but they don't get in the way of making contacts.

Awesome!

Hardest decision to make: Icom 7300 vs Yaesu 991a
Review by BRUCE
For 5 months I have gone back forth between these 2 radios. I have read every internet post and every video. Both are great radios. It came down to a 3 year warranty vs a 1 year warranty. I looked at Sherwood Engineering tests, listened to them both on the internet and saw hams doing sdr/panadaptor conversions.. During this pandemic that’s all we have to go by and I could not see a big difference. As a casual operator the 991a gave me all the frequencies without the additional cost of a separate UHF/vhf radio. I saw people complain about menu driven vs knobs which really is ridiculous. No used radio here as you buy yourself someone else’s headache for almost the same price as new. Your best friend is good antenna, such as my hexbeam, not a linear or a super expensive radio unless you need it for regular contesting which I am not. I am a first line provider taking care of covid patients and a ham. Be safe and follow the guidelines

Great radio. Got me active again
Review by Gustav
The built in sound card is amazing. When you connect it to a computer with USB you will see you system has a new sound card and 2 serial ports. The 2 serial are both connected to the CAT. Works perfectly with a RasPi. There is no included USB cable. I recommend a USB with chokes on both ends like:
"Tripp Lite USB 2.0 Hi-Speed A/B Cable with Ferrite Chokes" ~$10. Without that cable the RasPi 4 USB disconnected on TX. ( RasPi 3 was fine in same configuration)

To 7300 or not to 7300. 991A is the answer.
Review by Michael
I love this rig. I studied this and the 7300 for months agonizing over which one to buy. Though the 7300 supposedly has a better view of the screen, audio output and ease of use, it doesn't have the 2m and 70cm.

Why no one is talking about the audio output of this radio boggles my mind. It has so many adjustments with the EQ and band width for transmit, processor and mike gain. If you take the time and tune it right, it screams and that is exactly what other hams say when they give me my report.

I love the way the menus are set up and easy to access. Two buttons give you access to multiple screens that have so many options for so many different things, I love it. I use 20-20 on mic gain and processor as my normal setting. When the signal starts to fade I change it to 40-40 and I always get in the sign off and complete the qso and I am not left without saying good by. Some hams have said, oh, you must have kicked in the afterburner, your signal came up. That's no lie and makes a lot of difference to me.

I really can't see why anyone wouldn't like this radio, it has such a spectacular front end and adjustments if you need them to shut out the adjacent noise and narrow the signal down. In addition the contour is really good at changing the sound so I can add treble or bass to it and make it easier to understand. I usually just use the RF gain knob. It also has a digital receive mode that is just crazy. It can be noisy and if you are lazy, you can turn on the Dolby Noise Rejection and it immediately cuts out background noise and enhances the signal you want to hear. I have taken it at high as ten to see how much difference it makes but I usually run it on 2 so I can hear weaker signals if I use it at all.

If you are used to using Yaesu products, you won't have a problem with this one but there is a major learning curve because you have so many radios in one. To me it's like the took the best ideas from all the manufactures and put them all in one radio. I use this as a base and a 450d for my mobile but I am seriously thinking about buying another 991a for my mobile. I could put this in my truck and buy a new 7300 but the question is why? This one does all I want, has excellent receive and transmit and covers more freq. than the Icom for a few bucks more. In addition it is cheaper than a new 7300 and a c4fm wires x radio or Dstar and takes up less space.

The manual is easy to read though rather lengthy and is well written. YouTube is a great help if you have questions regarding the wiresX and you will have them, believe me, but having another mode of communication is well worth it. I can't say how well it does on CW but I am about to find out.

If the condition changes or the radio starts to get disappointing in the future, I will edit this post or add another one if required but I really doubt it will change. Yaesu still makes an outstanding product.

Great Rig!
Review by K1RET
I'm still learning this rig but I am extremely happy with my purchase. This is a rig I can grow into. I can make it QRP if I want to or operate at 100W on HF! I look forward to many good years out of this rig. Easy to set up and the real learning begins when we operate!
Overall
Fantastic radio.
Review by Edward
This radio is living up to all my expectations. Totally reliable, great performance, plenty of hf filters, and c4fm is top notch. I would recommend a Yaesu 991a to anyone. Very happy with the purchase.

Everything you need
Review by Kg5nub
One heck of a rig, I love it and it's got several filters you can play with to your liking, one thing I see is it only does 50 watts on 2 meter ssb, unlike kenwood ts2000 does 100 on 2 meter ssb
Other than that I love mine

Review by Kg5nub
I bout this rig little while back, I'm just a tech right now and I get on 10 meters quite often and I have to say it's got some awesome filters you can play with and adjust to your preference. Only draw back I see is it only does 50 watts on 2 meter ssb not 100 like other a ts2000 does
