    I could have swore the icom IC7100 was $799 on HRO last week. Now it's $930. I don't remember there being a sale or anything other than just the $100 mfg rebate.

    I could also be thinking of one of the other 50 radio's i looked at as well and i'm just losing my mind.

    Please confirm.

    You're correct and I saw it somewhere else within the last few months even cheaper. I believe Gigaparts had it listed at $699. I kept seeing hams selling used 7100's for more not realizing it was being sold new for less than they were asking for used.

    There is no current stock on 7300s at HRO. Given that, the price of the few 7100s in stock went up; supply/demand, chip shortage etc.

    Losing? :confused: I lost mine YEARS ago.:p

    Seriously, if the manufacturer raised THEIR "MSRP," (for whatever reason,) then the dealers are probably going to raise THEIR price as well. And any company can list a price when an item is out of stock, and may not know when they will get more stock in. If they don't take "pre-orders," that guarantee a price, they aren't to be held by their previous price, and can raise it as much as they want. Now isn't exactly the best time to "price shop":( when many dealers don't have an item in stock.

    Sales are what keeps the dealers in business. With so many ham radio equipment items being unavailable to dealers they have to maximize their income from the products they do have and can deliver.

    Trust me, and don't worry about it, you'll thank yourself later for not buying one of those abominably heinous 80's ATARI looking clock radios. Imagine staring into the face of THAT thing for the next 10 years... (shudder).

    The government has increased the money supply by 30% in the last two years. Prices need to rise by 30% to account for it eventually, since that new money had no new wealth production tied to it.
