To the fellow who asked for advice on comparing the Jupiter and Argonaut to 
the 746 Pro:  One thing I would do is look at the specs for the TT rigs on 
the TT website.  Then I would go to the ARRL website and look at the product 
reviews for the three rigs, and the rig comparison chart they have on their 
website.  (Since I have never looked at the ICOM website, I don't know 
what's there but in fairness I must say it probably won't hurt to look at it 
too, hi).  If you go to the Elecraft website, (www.elecraft.com) you will 
find another rig comparison chart (for receiving) which won't help you 
because it does not include the 746 Pro, BUT it has some explanations for 
what some of the specs mean.
For the ARRL data, you have to be a member to get access to that part of 
their website so if you aren't one already this is a good reason to pony up 
the $39(?) to join--IMO the online product review archive pays for the 
membership dues by itself.  On a side note, you will also find there an 
article from the Oct. QST last year abt. the superior dx receive performance 
of the Elecraft K2, the Omni VI+, and a modified Drake R4C compared to the 
multiple mixered JA rigs (but don't let me uh, influence you inadvertently).

Re DSP, tnx to everyone for the information abt. the Omni DSP etc.  I never 
thought to try an outboard DSP on the Corsair--great idea.
