What I meant was, a 500 left on continuous is a 100.
Yeah others got it right. The continuous timed as a nick.

I wasn't aware of how many different ways one could describe the same thing while not saying it differently...
Again, one of the great things you get with a 500 is the ability to choose; level & mode. I also believe the tube configuration is a major advantage ergonomically. It sits in my hand with my fingers (not thumbs) poised over the buttons & switches so I can operate every function without so much as a glance at the transmitter. I can change modes, levels, and steps; low-med-hi at my finger tips, and no need to look at the instrument. That means I can do all that at a moment's notice without taking my eyes off the dog, even for a moment. Decide for yourself how important timing is!

As they say, "better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it." I think the 500 is most definitely worth the little bit of extra money.
