I believe that both of them are pretty good radios and each will features and quirks that you will
either like or dislike.  I have an original FT-100 with the factory mods done under warranty.  I
used the radio mobile for about 2 years or so before I removed it from the vehicle and replaced it
with a FT-8900.  The FT-100 is now in a portable (ARES/RACES/Skywarn)

I'm partial to the FT-100 but wouldn't take anything away from the 706 other than I understand
that ICOM stands for I can only monitor.
