Hi...I own both rigs, plus IC-746 as a main rig. Have 2 ts 50 for mobile. Plus for TS50 is small, very reliable, has WARC bands, good Kenwood audio, gen. cov. rcvr. I love it as a mobile. The TS 520 is my backup base rig. Plusses are it is bullet proof, with good tubes will do 140 watts on 75, gud Kenwood audio, no warc bands, no gen. cov. rcvr, but a great radio besides. Space-wise, 520 is much bigger...ts50 will fit anywhere. Hope that helps you...73 es Merry Xmas...Jerry W7TNS
