The ICOM IC-7000 Bunny... Exactly. I have seen some (in pictures and "live") such mobile installations that allow little or no ventilation that literally beg to be fried. Granted, the lack of space is a concern in many of today's vehicles, but that is not a valid excuse for mounting a radio's RF deck very confined areas. Many radios, when idling, maintain a temperature of ~100 F; when transmitting, that rises considerably, but the heat dissipates well if there is adequate air flow around the unit and the ambient temperature is reasonable. Back to the IC-7000, I am still using the one i bought a few years ago, and have had neither issues nor problems with it. The '7000 is one of a few radios out there that, when properly installed and operated, falls into the "Energizer Bunny" category... it just keeps going, and going... Another option for the IC-7000 is the rear panel jack for video output; hook up a (for example) 7" color display and you have a really large and readable display. As another member posted earlier, my IC-7000 is my favorite radio next to the Flex (which I sold to make way for a new Flex). I had considered also selling the ICOM last year, but am glad I did not do so.
