Well Scott u certaintly have no bad choices listed.  Possibly there is
no right answer untill more about your operating is known.  I have
serveral rigs in a contest environment and each type has a purpose.
Would you believe the 20m station uses a ts-830s ( i still think it is a
great radio-- if u dont have to change bands, hi)

I use the 950 on the 40m station, and another on the combo 10m and
160 station.  i use the ft1000 on the 80m es 15m station.  

Overall my vote has always been with kenwood but i must tell you i
think the ft1000d is the best rig in my shack!  im drooling for a 1000mp
--- so, my vote goes for doing away with the icom choice first...
then toss a coin-- ( unless u need the 200 w from the 1000d)

you will enjoy any of these rigs--
