Not trashing the 2000, but when it first came out I sold a TS-450 and an
Icom 910 thinking that "one box" would be great. So, I purchased the 2000.
Well, within one year, I sold the 2000 and bought a TS-870 for HF work and
another IC-910.  I could have lived with it as an HF radio and a UHF/VHF
repeater radio.  The "birdies" drove me crazy on certain sat frequencies.
Not sure if that was ever fixed? It had more bells and whistles such as
adding the sats name to the menu etc, but I thought the 910's receive
capabilities were second to none for weak signal work.  I still love my
second IC-910!  Still have the TS-870 too.

Of course, all is one man's opinion.  This could become the "great debate"
thread.  hi hi

good luck,

Subject: [amsat-bb] Icom 910H vs Kenwood TS2000

I plan to purchase a new home transceiver in the next few months and I've
narrowed my choices between a 910H and a TS2000. Thinking only of satellite
operation (ignoring the HF capability of the TS2000), is there a general
preference in the Amsat community of one over the other? Reasons?
Thanks for your opinions.
