I've run a 706G mobile for many years. (like an idiot I sold a perfectly good rig) Got a wild hair and bought another G model from an estate sale that looked absolutely brand new. Looked like it spent its life in a box. Little did I know it was fraught with issues. Spent some money getting the tx straightened out but still low output on 2 at 10 watts. I could live with that. Yesterday the rx crapped out and is at least most likely the common vco trimmer issue that is common with early G models. In the early stages of this saga, I spent more money and bought a new AH4 and installed it in my truck along with a tall whip. Ran one years ago and liked it. So now I'm kinda invested in an Icom mobile hf install. Not sure how much more to invest in this 706 since the radio is getting long in the tooth. Leaning towards ditching Icom all together and going with a new Yaesu FT-891 or possibly a 857D. Yaesu offers a 3 yr warranty on the 891. But if I go that route is there a way to take advantage of my new AH4? I can install an extra 2m mobile and cover that, not much 440 activity here anyway. And of course I've got to do something with the 706 since it's worth nothing as is. But I'm a bit scared of keeping it after it's repaired (if I repair it). Could use some personal experience/direction here.
