Mal is right. 

Also remember when you say Icom you are saying tentec because as far as the
CI-V protocol they both use the same computer control methods and protocol.

Might add they also both do not report the second VFO and on some of the
older icoms you cannot command it into split operation using computer
control only manually.

For contesting and computer control *in my opinion* Yaesu is the way to go
as long as you filter up and do your mods all the others lack all the wrong
