    That's the control head for the ACOM 2000 amplifier.

    Looks like the control unit for an Acom 2000 amplifier.

    Great video BTW.

    After that I'll bet you need to unwind a bit.

    It's silly-overpriced for what it turned out to be. No SO2R. Lets see it on CW... still a Clicky clacky relay for break-in? On a 4-grand radio they couldn't afford pin diodes?

    With the IC-7300 at just a kilo-buck, buying three of those (two to use as real SO2R and one on the shelf for a backup) seems to make a whole lot more economic sense....

    At $2999 it's a maybe ... and I fully expect the price will fall down to that range by Dayton / Xena '18.

    How many did you guys actually ship out on that busy first-day to fill the backlog of pre-orders?

    I noticed Icom doesn't use packing styrofoam anymore. Wonder why?
