Re: 70mhz available on the 7000?

Hi Adam,

Yes, I know! I have been following your site on that topic in the past.
You bet.
Your site is well informative.

MKM or mab is fine for now:)


p.s. that Kenwood / Icom deal worries me a little. We need more info on
that. Kenwood has deep pockets and I would not want Icom to disappear.
Yaesu & Standard did a similar takeover in the past.

Hi Best (or should I call you MKM or mab?)

Actually, my good friend Matt KK5DR and I claim bragging rights for
predicting a radio quite similar to the IC-756Pro3 as far back as
mid-2003.
We even came up with a hypothetical  "precursor" to the IC-7800 which
was
not to far off the actual product.

Cheers for now, 73,
Adam VA7OJ/AB4OJ

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.
