I am considering a combo hf/vhf/uhf radio to replace the rather lame
ts-680 and ft290r vhf stuff here.  In a quick scan through a handy
catalog I see at least 3 options:

Ft-847 $1250(+$120 cw filter, any others??) hf+6+2+70

Ic-746 $1300(+$190+$120+++ cw and ssb filters, which does it really
nead?) hf+6+2 

Ts-2000 $1760! Hf+6+2+70 more expensive, but does it need extra filters?

Does anyone have experience using these or any other similar radios in
contest conditions?  Note, I can see w2sz/1 once I get above the trees
here.  Anything to stay away from?
