Re: Low intensity on the front panel

Hum, i guess I've not seen an IC-706 display in sunlight, though it sure looks fine in ambient room light, with good contrast & very distinct characters. I used a TM-D700A display on a m/c handlebar, w/o any sun shade, for many years here in AZ while supporting events, like long bicycle rides, and never found it difficult to see.

I am puzzled at these comments, as the display on my TM-D700A is pretty
bright, even in bright ambient light/sunlight.

Even viewing it through polarized sunglasses it's more readable than the
display on the ICOM IC-706MKII mounted next to it in the vehicle.
