A great challenge for the month ahead. Good luck with finding your own signals. - A few CW dots will be easier than SSB.
One possible issue though....I used an IC706 Mk 2G for the uplink here for a while. Turned out that on transmit the synthesiser generates wideband noise across the whole VHF/UHF spectrum. It's quite low level, but it can cause issues with VHF reception if the antennas are too close together. I tried all sorts of SAW and Cavity filters but never solved the problem.
Thanks for the heads-up on that one -- this is my first Icom rig ever (up to now I've been exclusively a Yaesu person) so I'm not sure what to expect. Perhaps the problem you had was specific to that particular radio?
