I have for sale an Icom 706MKII in good condition-has a smudge on the top cover and a few scratches here and there but actually looks pretty good overall. The sides and face look good as well. . This is the model that does 100 watts on HF and 6m and 20 watts on 2m so it would make a nice VHF contesting rig where you can drive an amp on 2m and use the 10m band as a transverter IF as well.  Also has a built in keyer and SWR meter.

It is the perfect size for roving as well.

It comes with the hand mic and a power cord. It works great (I have worked over 160 countries with it since January) except for the VOX which rapidly switches between transmit and receive once you stop talking. I have tried to fix this with different settings for VOX gain and Anti-VOX but no luck yet. Maybe you can find the correct settings for it, or just not use VOX.  This is a great rig if you can overlook the VOX issue. 

I am asking $425 plus shipping and can take paypal, check, or a MO.
