This is an opinion question, so tell me your opinion and why you feel the way you do. I have been wanting to get into vhf contests, but haven't got it all together yet. I currently have a Yaesu 450D and 100D. Also have 3 Tyt 9000 (2m, 1.25m and 70cm FM). I will be moving in a few months and have been thinking about the new shack and thinking of upgrading the equipment. So if you were to start from scratch to build a decent single operator station primarily for Vhf contest (I've be doing HF just fine with what I've got now), what equipment would you use? I like that the Elecraft K3 has support for multiple transverters. I also like the Icom IC-9100 for its 2m and 70cm capability, but no transverter support. When it comes to tranverters, I like the way the Elecraft transverters work with the K3, but Demi has more band choices. As far as antennas go, I've only got a triband vertical for the FMs. So any thoughts and comments are welcome.
