I would like to see Icom produce a radio that has selectivity, most of the models I have seen,used and owned, have been very poor in the selectivity department. I made a comparison several years ago when I purchased an Icom mobile from HRO, I installed the radio, drove to South Mountain in Phoenix, and was welcomed by nothing but intermod. I could not even hear the on-channel repeater that was ON that peak, the IMD was that horrid for that radio! The radio was returned with a large 'junk' tag posted on the box. A purchase of a Yaesu FT2500 was made, and back to the mountain I headed. Not only was I able to HEAR most of the repeaters I wanted to listen to, I could also hear and use the very same machine I could NOT hear with the Icom. Aside from a minor squawk early on, the Yaesu vastly out-performed the Icom. Both radios were in the same price range, and capabilities, as well as RX coverage. But the front end was far superior with the Yaesu. Aside from my single test, I have never been too happy with the designs of Icom, save for the single band model(heck if I can remember it now). That radio did have a decent front end, and IMD products were noticably lower as well. That radio made me feel a little better about the Icom, or will they follow many others and change their name to iCOM so as to appeal to cellphone buyers(my poke)? Truth be told, I have not been a fan of Icom products, but I did love the IC-2AT, THA was one solid radio, but again, horribly lousy battery, NO CTCSS encode at the very least.
