I don't think the 910 or the 847 has any birdies in the sat frequencies. It
anyone finds any I would like to know. It is a shame about the 2000, it is a
much better HF TXR then the 847, but the birdie at 145800 is the satellite
use show stopper. I have all three here in the shack, and a blackbox 2000 as
my HF mobile. The only one I purchased new was the 847 in 1998 or so. The
910, and 2000's were picked up used at a very good price, the good deals are
there if your patient. I would recommend a used 847 over the 2000. The
money saved over a new TS-2000 purchase can be used to buy a better HF
performing rig then the 2000. My 2 cents.

honestly don't recall, I bought my ts2000x about 3yrs ago now. At
that time I wrestled between the TS and the IC910h
At that time I just googled both, saw a few comments regarding a
birdie for each and ended up w/the TS2000x because I figured HF would
be a added bonus along w/sky command as I live near a few schools and
wanted to do some demo's
Is the IC910 'birdie free' , with respect to satellites? Perhaps I
If so maybe it's time to try one :)

Where does the 910 have the birdie?
