I bought a new IC-718 HF radio the other day and what a nice radio! It plays great and has many features others like the TT Juptier don't even come standard with, and all for under $600! It is easy to use, functionality it works very well and handles well on crowded band conditions. I received the optional DSP unit for it and I have yet to install my CW filters in it(can't beat optional CW filters!. Check out some user feedbacks on this radio. It is a really good investement for the 'price you pay up front!
