Discussion in 'Software Defined Radio (SDR)' started by K0UO, Aug 30, 2019.
Here's a link to a couple of videos that show more details of the radio.
It appears to be a very compact radio like the KX2 and KX3.
The radio products for Japan’s “10 watt” amateur license, shown at the Tokyo Ham Fair,
do not always appear in the North American market (distributors).
American infatuation with QRO, especially via ex-CB users, is well known globally.
Would a new QRP radio with significant features be successful in USA ?
Just go on GigaParts you can already reserved one, it looks like Icom wants to get into qrp business and compete with the kx3 and others!
Looks great, they nailed it with the IC-7300 platform and now they can extend the concept to others.
Yaesu won't like this at all. I was rather surprised that they insisted with the great but outdated FT-818. I own a FT-817nd and it's still a great radio but SDR techniques make much more sense nowadays.
Just look at the phenomenal success of the Yaesu FT-817 and the Elecraft QRP rigs.
