    OK, so the 705 is now out in Nippon?

    Hmmm, I guess I missed the review part. This reads like a child’s story. Not saying it’s bad just not really a review.

    The story seems marketed to pre-teens, but there’s some good quality, new photos of the official Icom backpack in this article.

    Knowing ham radio accessories market, I’m guessing they start the pricing on the backpack at a cheap $199.

    All I got out of this was that it fit into the back pack and there was a BNC connector for an antenna.

    It comes off as "Look at these air heads walk around and pretend to play radio". They could be very intelligent and talented hams but it does not come off that way. It's kind of demeaning to them. Then again Japanese culture is much different than ours so it's probably just lost in the translation.

    Yes, the Japanese culture is very different. Let's rejoice in the fact that the 705 is about to hit our shores soon.

    I have a feeling these were just Japanese models for some marketing photo ops. I doubt they even know what the radio was.

    Your "feelings" have betrayed you. They are both licensed operators which the article notes at the beginning of the third paragraph along with their respective call signs.

    There are hundreds of thousands of licensed hams around the world that are not registered on QRZ.com, so just because it is not listed here does not mean the call sign is not valid.

    Both Erii and Masaco are licensed, active hams in Japan. When they get on the air there is usually a pile up, as they are well known among Japanese hams.
