I had a problem with the   TS-870  menu stuff untill I got it figured out I 
had to keep the book in arms reach,  I found that most of the settings are a 
piece of cake after a few days of using,   things like  ability to  PTT Amp. 
and VOX sensitivity.
90% or the settings I've never touched.  ??

I'm sure that with the  2000 monitoring  CW sidetone is real easy once you 
have found the approiate control.

I haven't used one of the 2000's rigs and they don't have some of the 
features of the 870 but work for lots of people.
