The 8FG holds 20 models internally. Then you have to add a $15 2GB card which is readily available at any Walmart, Best Buy, Staples... Heck even my local grocery store has SD cards in the checkout line.

.5% of all modelers NEED 1000 model memories? I challenge you to find one. The point is, IF you support SD cards, then you support all sizes... which is 32MB to 2GB.

I loved the fact that Futaba included an SD card slot on the 12FG and that was a big part of the deciding factor in my purchase.

It's great that they're passing some of these features down to the less expensive radios.
