I am looking to get a dual receive HF rig in the next
year or so, and am trying to select between the
FT1000MKV (or probably the Field, given the internal
PS) and the Icom 756PROIII.  Any idea which would be
better for causal contesting and more serious DXing? 
Could possibly consider the PROII also, but the PROIII
sounds like it has some very nice improvements.
