Used Yaesu FT1000Ds are on the market  now for $1900.  The Kenwood
TS850 is much less (get a later serial number).  These are both
excellent contest rigs for ssb and have very robust PAs for 100% duty
cycle modes and the build quality is absolutely excellent; no Ten Tec
I have ever operated including the Orion comes close.  N6TR has a
whole page of information on the TS850 as a contest rig and these are
mature products that continue to be in use at top contesting stations.
