I am an ICOM guy but an ORIGINAL ICOM 706 can become a receiver very fast should the HF/6 meter finals fail.They are no longer made or available so I for sure would pass on those radio's.I have seen some posting that the EARLY model 706 MKIIG finals are also as rare as chickens teeth so do your homework before spending your hard earned cash.

I have used a MFJ 9420 with a hamstick.  It is not that fancy but it works and it will be within your price range.  A good working 9420 can be had for $100.00 at hamfests.  Forget Ebay as they usually want as much as you can buy a new @ the candy store.  A cheap 9420 can be had on Eham, but they are few and far between.  The Atlas 210 is a good choice as is a Alda 103 or 105 if you need multiband operation.  An Amp supply monobander is also a great little 20 watt rig.
