    Nice radio. Beautiful front panel. Nice Specs. Rediculous Price.

    At least they gave a mike.

    I'll keep my FT-857 for now. At nearly 1/3rd the price it's got the bang-for-the-buck factor beat.

    Just to put this in perspective.

    In March 1996 the original IC-706 retailed for $1,560.

    This would be $1,934 in todays inflated dollars.

    Also, the original 706 came stripped with no filters. The 7000 had digital IF filters as standard equipment.

    I agree that rigs like the FT-857 are a tremendous value for the money. No way is the IC-7000 going to be 2.5 X better than the 857.

    However, when Icom ships them, they will probably have a backlog of orders.

    I wonder if it will include the 60 meter channels?

    Why would ICOM make a radio that goes to 70cm and put TWO SO-239 connectors on it?

    It's almost insulting, do they really think we can't put a
    "N" or BNC connector together?

    I just went to both and Icom Japan's site and neither site have the IC-7000 listed yet.

    RigPix has it, but none of the Icom sites do. How is it that there's no price on Icom's site?
