Two independent receivers, but not for HF!! I got excited when I saw that the IC-9100 had two independent receivers. That's the feature that is most lacking on all but the most expensive Icom radios. "Dual watch" didn't cut it, because you can't have different filters for the two. So you can't use it (for example) to have a tight filter on the DX while using a wide filter for the pileup on the same band Unfortunately, the independent receivers don't work for the same band (where "HF" counts as a single "band".) I.e. it's only for cross-band (usually satellite) usage. Very disappointing. If someone knows of an Icom radio that costs less than $4000 that does this, please let me know. More generally, what HF radios less than $4000 have two independent receivers? Seems to me that Yaesu has some.
