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
was  incorrect


 If so  maybe   it's time  to  try  one :)

Where does the 910 have the birdie?
