Hi Andrew,

A 'loaded question' for sure, but 1 issue for me:

The TS2000 has internal 'birdies' at 436.799 which make it difficult to work
some sats. See page 103 of the manual. People claim 'work arounds' but it's
an issue in a $2,000 radio and should not be.

Don't know about the Icom rig

Hello all,


Can someone tell what is better for satellite work, the Kenwood TS-2000X or
the Icom IC- 9100 ??
