Re: FT100D




Hello Jerry,

 I have used my IC-706 MK2G on everything from AO-7 to the FM birds to
RS-12/13 when it was around.

 It has done a great job for me on the birds. On RS-12/13 I used it as the
15M uplink radio, using a 2 meter all mode rig as the downlink (mode T).

I have used it as the downlink radio for birds such as FO-20 and FO-29.

 On AO-40 I plan to use it as the uplink, and use the 2 meter rig for the IF
radio..

 Just in case you didn't know, the IC-706 mk2g can NOT operate cross-band
full duplex, but it has been a great radio for me!

 73!
