Mixed bag

I gave my vote to Icom.

I used to use an Icom IC-208H last year. Then, I replaced it with a Kenwood TM-D700A. Both great radios. For a casual contact, or APRS, I'd be using the Kenwood.

Today, I also have a IC-910H which I use if I want to do fine doppler correction. Use a Kantronics KPC-3+ for the packet side.

Still haven't made a space contact with the Yaesu FT-817 (non-ND version, with blown finals replaced). Another fine radio.

IC-T7H for my voice contacts

I've only used an IC-T7H to make my ISS voice contacts in 2005 and 2006, since that HT's receiver could reject the intermod in and around downtown Phoenix where my IC-W32A's receiver would be swamped on 2m with intermod. For the cross-band repeater, I used either the IC-W32A or IC-2720H, rather than manually swapping between bands on the IC-T7H.

73!
