ICOM radios are made and assembled in Japan, I have been to the
factory myself.

Hi Paul,

Considering that all the Japanese manufacturers are now
outsourcing PCB fab,
die-cast chassis injection moulding and other subassembly
manufacture to
lower-labour-cost areas in Asia, Icom should be able to hold the
price down
to the $1K level.

Your comments about DSP vs. analogue/crystal-filter architecture
are
absolutely correct. Economics, as well as performance and
capability, are
driving the shift to 100% DSP implementations.

down.
There is no backwards."

Cheers for now, 73,
