Re: quick survey

Early models (like mine) were often off frequency and the trimmer on the stock LO didn't have the range to fix the problem. Mine was 9 khz off on 435. Icom replaced the LO unit free of charge, so if you buy a used one ask if it was fixed! I have a few grumbles with the radio compared to the 821, but overall it's pretty fine. The AFC is a super nice function for the FM sats, especially on S. 

I generally dislike the trend to all in one DC to daylight rigs, and the 910 is the last left that's VHF/UHF only and sat capable.

The IC910 seems to be coming out ahead in the survey.
Only known negative on this transceiver is the large amount of transmitted  
phase noise.
Not a major problem for satellite operations, but worth considering if you  
want to operate 1296 and live in an urban area with other 23cm stations close
