[amsat-bb] IC-970 vs. newer rigs

Have been following the "910H vs. TS-2000" thread.  Wonder how the older
IC-970A (good in its day) compares with these newer rigs,
acknowledging the lower power (25W) and lack of any DSP in the receiver.
 My 970A is currently in semi-storage waiting for me to have the
old-style trimmer capacitors replaced; the synthesizer no longer locks
on 70 cm.  Hope to get that done soon.  

Any suggestions as to the best repair site for an older ICOM rig
welcome; I already know about MTS and absent  any really glowing
alternative suggestions will probably send it there.
