    We're extremely fortunate to have received one of the very first ICOM IC-7610 radios delivered in north america. After waiting in line for many months, my Gigaparts.com pre-release reservation paid off with that much anticipated knock on the front door by UPS. I know the knock well, and it's so common around our house that the dog no longer barks at the delivery guy :)

    Our sincere thanks goes out to Gigaparts.com who made sure that everything went as smooth as possible.

    Let's get right to the video:

    It's an LED brightness control, not the LCD screen. You can see the brightness of the LED to the right of the AF/RF controls. I see they caught that later. Also would love to know if you hook up a mouse as was suggested, can you control all the screen functions? Hate getting finger prints all over the screen.

    Yep, I mentioned that later in the video. We're still looking for the screen contrast controls.
