Is the icom website down?
Did they change urls?
Been trying to load it for a couple days now.
Seems to be down. Blog.icomamerica.com works, unlikely they changed URLs. Must be an IT or Cyber issue.
they were impeached
The other thread talking about this says they have been bought by TenTec.
I heard it was the "New Heathkit" that bought Icom and they're going to start rolling out the SB-7300 by April 1
Here's a great link to check on a website that may be down: https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/
The Icom America site has been down since last weekend. The main global site is still up as are the other regional sites.
The link and contact info for the US site is still there, but the link doesn't work-
If someone finds out what's going on by all means post it here.
Maybe they decided not to do business with us cheap american Hams??...

Thanks for that update, mystery solved. Hope they get their servers up and running shortly, maybe they need some new IT people.
If anyone needs manuals, firmware, software etc. most of it is available through the Japan site.
