Are you mistaken?  I don't think the TS2000 has a birdie at 145.800MHz.

It does have one at 436.800MHz.

I would agree with your other comments.

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.
