    I'll wait until they get the bugs out of the first production runs.

    External monitors help but eye candy to most. Can't believe ICOM still using DVI monitor connector on the back and not HDMI connector.

    Single operator, 2 radios. It's one of the use cases that manufacturers put two receivers into one radio box. If done well, it is fantastic. But if done poorly, one is better off with "two" radios (and you also have a backup transmitter since each radio has a separate transmitter too...while a dual receive radio just has 1 transmitter). These are the kind of use-cases that, if done properly, give a competitive advantage and justify (or not) a $4,000 radio. Very often used for high speed CW contesting.

    I've got three IC-7300's and they're really great for the money.
    I don't see "upgrading" to the 7610 just to get a bigger tv screen.

    DVI to HDMI adapter is like $4 bucks on Amazon. That's not such a big deal...

    So, it works just like any other amateur radio. Key it up, talk to somebody, rinse repeat. Been happening for decades and decades. Not a big deal.
