440 or 70cm all mode rig for dx & some other uses.
All right it is time for some options good & bad all are welcome.
I am interested in buying one of the older Icom, Kenwood, or Yaesu.
I do not think any of them make them any more. Single band all mode that is.
Or any other brands that might be recommend.
I already have a couple of the newer multi mod & band rigs.
You know Icom 706 MK2G, 746, and a 2 meter dedicated to sideband only.
Older rig nice one to, but now I want the 440 help me out guys.

I want to dedicate the 440 rig (all mode) to be used just for 440 do not want to tie up the other rigs up. I want to leave them for whatever I am using them for at the time.
The older rigs for 440 use.  
Heck I do not even remember the number of these rigs ,you know what I mean say Icom444ABC ECT.
Help me out with the styles numbers receive & transmit capabilities.
The ayes & the nays alright lets go.
The more info the better.

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike,

Icom had a IC-475 which was part of the X75 family.  There were radios from 10 - 1296.

There was also an IC-471 which was before the 475.  

Kenwood made the TS-811 which matched the TS-711 for 2 meters.  

There was also a TR-851 which matched the TR-751 for 2 meters.  This was a mobile style radio.

Another radio Kenwood made was the TM-455 which matched the TM-255.  This had a detachable front panel.

Yaesu made a mobile style radio back in the early 80s, but I wouldn't touch anything that old.

Check out the product reviews portion on e-ham under Transceivers: VHF/UHF Amateur Base/Mobile (non hand-held)

Hope this helps

Be advised that the Kenwood TM455 doesn't cover the FM portion of the band.  The TM255 is a great do-everything 2 meter rig, though.
