    All companies were once small and unknown.
    I saw only one MB-1 in Kyiv. He stood broken and no one could repair it.
    There are no schematics or service manuals, and firmware is also not available. You can count only on the warranty.
    There was no guarantee for that device.

    Hey Just like the FlexRadio's, NO Schematics or service manuals and that is one very good reason I went for the Icom 7610 besides it also has an excellent SDR RX!

    This rig has already been out over 2 years. As AJ2I points out, same company that made the SunSDR2 rigs that went to the 3B7A DXpedition. I am pretty sure they will be around a while. A friend has an MB-1 and you can load your logging and digital mode stuff right onto the rig if you wanted to.

    That's way beyond my needs or wants for this hobby. Also no way too justify purchase for a hobby.

    I like the fact that you can use the internal computer to run your ham software and more. Connect two external monitors, keyboard and mouse and you have a nice little shack computer included in the price. (Intel Core i5 @ 3.0GHZ, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD) This takes the ICOM 7610 and Flex 6000 series a step further. I would like more details on SO2R operation, band pass filter specs, cw capabilities (QSK & Latency).

    Interesting that radio manufacturers are charging a pretty penny for this stuff. Who is their target market? It seems as if it's for "audophiles" for HAM. Most radios are creeping up in price - which is no wonder why Baofeng and the Chinese radios are becoming so popular.

    They says it is the best for serious contesters and DXers. Ordinary ham will buy icom crap. They talk this in every icom topic on russian forums.
