Anyone with views on the merits of the IC706 II G  vis-a-vis the old  TS
850
as a 136  Rx. ?

Going to a  rally tomorrow - can look out for LF stuff
The IC-706 is fine with the CW filter fitted and a good 20 db gain P/amp and
a good big antenna. The 850 is also fine without a P/amp but needs the CW
filters for the required selectivity plus an external DSP unit for added
selectivity.
Most modern Receivers are suitable with a few add on extras.
I have tried various and all work well but some have advantages over others.
I find the antenna makes a big difference as regards sensitivity. Install
the bigest antenna possible. With my antenna system I have to use
attenuation there is TOO much gain hi.
