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.
