Re: 70mhz available on the 7000?

I think just few people at retail level know about it...not a buddy
type at HRO. I think senior level management or such will know.

We just wait and see. The 706 is an old but good radio. I got mine from
the first shipment back in the 90s. It is just time for a replacement.

Furthermore, looking at the R&D of Icom, they are done with the
ultimate rig, the 7800, they are done with the replacement for the
756pro series, one should ask what they were designing next and that
will be a mobile radio to replace the 706mk2g.

Also, keep in mind that nobody saw the Pro3 coming....the pro2 is still
on sale. So anything is possible.

For what it's worth (not much in my opinion) I was just reading the

heard a ham say he called his buddy at HRO today to ask if the price
of the
706MkIIg had gone up (it had). When he said "Is the rumor true", his
thought he was asking about the IC-7000 and said all the rumors about
it coming
out were false. Like I said, for what it's worth.

Hate to disappoint you guys, MWE has the information from here or
Adam's site.

(I know because I supplied the information via an other ham to him)
