I can't be 100% sure, but from what I've seen, the 706IIG can't operate
crossband full duplex like the 847, so that can make it limiting for
satellite work.

Either that or the person I know with one needs a few pointers on getting it
to go full duplex :)

I have no idea on the FT 100, never even seen one close up.
