I've had good luck with the M93 but I don't know anything about the 73. My general opinion is that the Icom portables are very good. I like the GPS/DSC of the M93 as backup for my base and for use in...

I've had both SH and Icom handhelds and I now prefer the Icons for two reasons. The sound quality (what I hear) is superior and I find their menus much more logical. Since I use mine a lot, I would...
