    The FT-710 is a very good rig; the receiver is even better than the IC-7300. I settled on the latter because I'm not a contester, my limiting factor is my antenna and I liked the user interface better. YMMV.

    On edit: Also, at the time I bought it the Icom was less expensive.
    All the world’s a stage, but obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines. Maybe that’s why it’s hard to tell if we’re living in a tragedy or a farce.

    Well damn. Less money than Mrs U paid for a new 706 2g back then.

    I hope you get the rig at the new price

    And it connects directly to a monitor.

    [edit]: Something kept telling me to hold off. Maybe, this is the rig. I don't care about contesting. Biggest thing is receiver for this OF.
    The direct connect to a monitor is a huge plus though :)

    I'm kinda surprised that monitor connections haven't become commonplace sooner... ("they don't support VGA!")

    And you can plug a mouse right into it. I could literally lay in bed and control the rig.
