Depends if you want to go mobile or not.
The 706 mk2G is a good all rounder. Mobile or base.
Can't really comment on the 847 as never had one.
Have you thought about a Yaesu FT450d. Get an almost new probably cheaper than these two. And it has a built in ATU.
Just my tuppence worth.

Paul.

Hi. Road Warrior.

U won't regret staying with Yeasu. I had my 450d 2yrs. Now have
891 for mobile. I was on 40 today amidst Contests! I started with
Yeasu in '70s with 101E then ZD then 707. Good luck 73's Mike.
