I have a Kenwood TS-2000, but was disappointed about the birdy on
436.795, which makes both SO-50 and AO-27 unusable.
Now if that doesn't bother you, the 2000 is a great radio.
However, I wanted to have a dedicated satellite radio, and I decided
to go with the Icom IC-910H.
I guess it all depends. If you are looking for a radio that will do
HF & VHF/UHF and satellites, and aren't too concerned about using
those two birds, then go with the 2000. You can't beat it for the
If you want to have a rig that was designed specifically for satellite
work, and if you already have an HF rig, then the 910H is for you.
There are other older radios available, but I personally like to stay
with rigs that are still in production.
