The Ts-2000 is an ok radio for HF. The receiver is a little noisy to my ear. I will keep mine for a long time because I like the skycommand feature. I use the thD7a talkie to control the radio remotely. I like to listen and operate remote HF around the house or while out for a walk. It works quite well. The D700/710 will also allow you to remote it also from your car. It's really cool. I also have it hooked up to a remoteshack (www.remoteshack.com
) so I can call it and operate it from my cell phone or contact it from skype via another computer. If the remote operation/skycommand does not interest you then you can probably do better with something like a Yaesu FTDX-1200 for about the same price and use your vhf/uhf radio that you have now.
I have had mine for several years and never a problem.
Hope this helps.
