The one radio icom makes that I can not stand.

Why not? Its my favorite mobile rig and has a much better receiver than the IC-7000 that tried to replace it. Many of my friends that sold their 706s for 7000s now want their 706 back.
I own both of these radios. Never did any empirical testing, but my ears and experience tell me the FT-1000D is a better and more sensitive radio, but really not by much. Both radios are outstanding.the 706MKIIG is rated better than some well known but older contest radios like the Yaesu FT-1000D
