New QRP rig's splash debut

The IC-705 is also a nice ‘contender’ in the sub-$1K range, especially if you work a lot of VHF-UHF …

Performance is pretty good, per the video review.   Lots of opinions on Google.

For me, personally, I would go with an Elecraft KX2 for about the same investment.  US-made.  Proven performance.

But just my 2-cents.

The price doesn't look too bad, although I am not really that familiar with pricing on QRP rigs. Just wondering how it performs? Or has anyone heard any reviews or know of someone who has one?

On another note, ICOM has a new QRP rig that is supposed to be available soon, if it's not out already. I've seen pictures but not heard anything about it as far as price or performance. Anyone else?

Maybe one of these would be a good present to self for retirement...........
