-570s with A/T and DSP can be found used in your price range with money to spare. I have worked alot of stations on 6 meters using the 570s and all had excellent audio.The only down fall is no 2 meter or 70cm.....this rig gets great reviews here;eham
As far as Icoms 746 you are right in looking for a non pro as the 746 pro has had there share of problems.It also does have vhf/uhf
capabilitys.It also has DSP and built in A/T. Although i would recommend installing TCXO and your good to go.You can also find the 746 in your price range. This rig gets much better reviews than icom's 746pro ,look here;eham
It would be a hard choice between the 2 as both have pro's and cons but i feel you would be happy with either one,good luck........it's a hard choice.
