Congratulations on having a fine XYL!  My view of this is that both the Omni 
and Yaesu are fine rigs, but you won't get much for them if you sell them. 
That's mostly because so many guys have been selling top tier rigs like 
these to buy K3s. Two years ago an MP loaded with filters was worth almost 
$2K. Now it's more like $1.2K. I'd say tht if you don't need the cash, hang 
on to them. If you need cash to buy the K3, that's another story. I sold an 
Omni V, an MP, and a loaded K2 to buy a K3. But I still have a TS850, an MP, 
two  746s, and a K2 (which I keep for emergency use because of it's much 
lower current draw). The 850 and one 746 are for sale. :)
