RE: Icom 706



Geesh, seems that the Icoms have it, however, I'm wondering why people seem
so opposed to these two rigs.  They are cost effective and relatively full
featured.  I don't wanna spend the extra $400 for 847 right now, though it's
not being precluded from future consideration.  Right now though, the
portability is a very serious concern as I travel almost perpetually.

Neither.   Look at the Yeasu 847 designed specifically to accommodate
satellite work.

Of course if you wait a while there well be more and better rigs but they
probably won't be available until summer.
