    I have been seeing ads by most of the amateur radio dealers saying you can reserve one now. That leads me to believe they are now only a couple of months away from release here in the US.

    I read somewhere that the rig will have dual receivers and a lot of the features and functions in the current 7600. Should be a very nice radio and if the price is right I will be getting one. I really don't need dual receivers but I do like the features on my 7600 so it will be nice to have those plus some other cool features.

    So has anyone reserved one yet? :)

    Sell a few of those boat anchors that you have more than one of and you can! Like Nike says "just do it". You ain't gettin' younger.

    I know several who have reserved them, long time 7600 users.

    I wish iFixIt.com would get one and tear it apart like they do with iPhones. Maybe Pat could do that.

    Buying 2 7300s is cheaper.
    What is the point of reserving a 7610?

    Yeah, you can, but why? Using two separate rigs in close proximity present challenges whereas a rig with two internal receivers mitigates those challenges.

    Frankly, I dont actually know the benefit of the 7610 but I am going to buy it to find out :)
