    I heard someone on the air talking about it and they said maybe next march. Have to wait and see I guess. I thought it was a plot to keep it off the market until near the holidays so all good girls and boys could treat themselves to a nice new radio.

    In talking to an employee of a ham retailer, ICOM is talking about a december release date, now.

    But isn't it up to the FCC and their approval (or rather their contractor)??? Or has the approval been obtained and ICOM is milking the market? Who knows.

    And I guess Google is your friend. I found the test report. It appears it passed the contractors tests: https://fccid.io/AFJ386400/Test-Report/FCC-Part-15-121-Test-Report-3628439 and the FCC Granted its sale YESTERDAY! Gotta love the Internet.

    I'm not sure how to read that.

    The output range and power is left blank as well. Are the RX and TX 2 separate authorizations?
    Did people actually pay ahead of time when they pre-ordered? Is ICOM playing with other people's money before they have a grant from the FCC? That's insane.

    More conspiracy accusations. shakes head.

    Icom doesn't have anybody's money. They don't sell direct.

    Any money taken in deposit on advance sales went to a retailer.

    Cover your microphones and keys with foil.

    Other places I've read today have an Icom rep confirming approval as of yesterday with the FCC. Prices to be announced soon, availability with retailers in December.

    WTF! Please reread.......that was a QUESTION, not an accusation. I forgot the question mark. My bad.....I've corrected the original post.

    I asked the question because I did not know the answer, not to cast dispersion. No reason to shake your head.


    BTW, the real question was about the FCC authorization. Do you know the answer to that or are you just trolling to find someone to flame?

    I believe the transmitter section is type accepted. The receiver is a scanning capable receiver and under the commissions rules is what needs to be tested.

    When dealing with the government, don't expect it to make sense... ;)

    I didn't pay (and no one could take your money anyway - legally) for a radio. I did pay for a slot to buy one (waiting list), and that money is applied to the price when I do buy it (or lost if I don't). Lots of the major resellers were doing this. HRO was cheap at $30. Others were like $50.

    If anyone was playing with money, it was the resellers. They likely made a few dollars on the float of that money on deposit.

    Since you've already ordered one I think, congratulations on your purchase of a new scanning receiver!

    The transmitter comes separately and is an option.:p

    Actually, this isn't an unusual designation; for Part 15 compliance, required for about anything with an oscillator in it, only the receiver is actually tested for radiated and conducted emissions. Part 97 compliance verification is required for the transmitter (only) to assure it meets the harmonic content limits. Normally, two different reports.
