I'm surprised that the Kenwood TS-570 isn't being recommended as a portable  
contesting rig.
Is there a reason for this? Additional power supply needed perhaps??
The internal antenna tuner works fine and computer control is FB with  
contest software that provides it. Built in (optional) DVK and a decent CW  receiver 
with an Inrad filter. Plus a carrying handle on the side.  I like  mine.
I use a 765 for contests from home, but way prefer the 570 over the 706 in  
my car. The 706 just takes up a lot more space with the panel detached.
