    Icom launch IC-7851 Flagship HF/50MHz Amateur Radio Transceiver

    Radio manufacturer, Icom have a strong heritage of building the most sophisticated Amateur radio transceivers. Decades of technical expertise and engineering experience have brought top of the range models from the IC-781 to the IC-7800. Icom now are pleased to launch the latest generation of high end HF transceiver called the IC-7851!

    The IC-7851 is the company's new flagship amateur radio and incorporates a new local oscillator (LO) design, an optimized roofing filter, enhanced spectrum scope to name but a few of its many functions. Raising the bar for HF operation, the IC-7851 is ideal for contesters, DXers and the serious amateur radio operator. Icom's new radio features a new LO design which utilizes a Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) along with a Phase Locked Oscillator. This configuration reduces phase noise and achieves a reciprocal mixing dynamic range of 110dB. A 1.2 kHz optimized roofing filter overcomes the gap of a narrower roofing filter in an up-conversion receiver and greatly improves in-band adjacent signal performance.

    Not worth 15k in any stretch of the imagination...icom is out of there minds if they think hams are going to pay 15k for that radio.. it was a complete waste of time and effort to make that radio which doesnt even look like a amateur radio it looks more like a professional radio to me

    I'd say what I think it ought to do for that price, but then I'd probably end up in the cornfield.

    I agree 15K is a crazy number, BUT...........

    you all know if you had the money with out an issue you would buy it. Anyone who says other wise doesn't know what it's like to even have a problem like having to much money. Only reason you would complain is, because your just another window shopper.

    Like myself I'll still keep dreaming about owning a rig like this. If I ever can one day afford this rig....HELL YEAH I'd buy one. ITS AN ICOM BABY!!!

    What's not to like?!

    Ham radio is an inexpensive hobby.Have 4 HF transceivers and the cost is less than $10K.At the CES show in Vegas I saw stereo(2 channel) systems costing 1 million.$50K speaker cables and $25K interconnects.Also,$10K AC cables and $25K power line conditioners.Don't forget the watch guys,not the cheap Rolexes,but the $100K ones.A $15K Icom sounds like a good deal to me.K4IIE

    Roger that! The Icom hidden menu enabled external device psyche-amp, worth potentially +20 db additional perceived ego boost at any club meeting or ham fest. Certainly not a feature you would ever need to utilize Chip! :rolleyes: ... but nonetheless, drool-worthy way-cool !!
