  I have a 706 mk2g. It's been a decent radio. I've had it for about 15
years. It's had a few issues - which I've been able to figure out and
repair myself. Depending on what you have to spend, I'd go for the 7000 or
if you have a bit more cash, the 7100. The 706's are going on the used
market for 500 bucks, which isn't a bad price for a rig that will go from
160m-70cm. I use mine every day. The only worrisome thing with me is that
it gets hot. Hot, even when it's just sitiing squelched on recieve. I guess
this is typical of these radios. Again, I guess it depends on what you have
to spend, or want to spend.
