Hard to beat for the money....

Yaesu FT-857D, Mobile HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver

Noisy receiver but beyond that it is a good little rig and a great mobile. For close to the same money you can buy a Kenwood TS-480SAT and get a better rig, but if you have to have the 2M/70cm the FT-857D is the way to go.

Great Beginners Rig

Yaesu FT-840, Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

Hard to beat this rig. It is short on features but it does everything it was designed to do very well. I loved mine!

It's OK...just

ICOM IC-706MKIIG, Mobile HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver

I've owned 4 of these. I like the way they look, and they work OK, but the receiver is not all that good. Noise is the main issue. Would have been a great radio if the receiver was better. This radio also gets hot. Even when receiving. 4 or 5 hours powered on and even the face plate gets warm.

Another Great Kenwood

Kenwood TS-570S, Desktop HF/VHF Transceiver

Great receive! Just as good as my TS-850SAT... Maybe better. I can't think of a single thing I don't like about this rig.

Too Bad Kenwood Got Rid of this One.

One of Kenwood's Best

Kenwood TS-480SAT, Desktop HF/VHF Transceiver

I've owned many Kenwood Rigs....This one is the very best. Better then my beloved TS-850.
