I'll run on my second radio about 20% of the time.  If one radio is 
the S&P and I decide to run on that band, often I'll use the radio 
already there.  The "run radio" is better (FT-1000D fully filtered vs 
FT-990 without narrow CW filter), but it's not that inferior.  Also, 
I'm pretty much from the K3ZO school of contesting, where I like to 
hear a lot and let my brain do the filtering.  All antennas are 
available to both radios with my switching scheme, so that's not a 
limiting factor.
