Hi Jeff. I also feel warm when I hear the word "Ten Tec". And I find
myself using ten tec as a "standard" when compairing other rigs.
Have you ever thought about a Ten Tec Delta II rig?
I have an Omni 5 and just recently picked up this Delta II of mine and
for a small back up rig that says ten tec on it, I don't think you can
go wrong. No, I am not offering mine for sale cause I am happy with
it. But you may want to look that direction if you want a decent
smaller rig. No, it does not have the rx of my Omni 5, but niether
do any of the rigs you asked about. But for a smaller (same size, shape,
color and appearance of the IC-735) rig, this may fit your bill.
Just a thought.....73 and keep ten tec'n......Steve
P.S. here is a website you can go and look at this rig....
