Another speculation could be that ic7000 is for the european version as the 7400 was the european version of my 746 pro?? Whaddya think? kg4ktl

The only instances of the 7000 model number of which I am aware are the
IC-R7000 receiver and the IC-F7000 DSP-based commercial/marine HF-SSB

Icom is in the process of replacing its entire analogue HF product line with
DSP-based designs. As high-performance ADC, DSP and DAC IC's become more
cost-effective, this change, which already includes Icom's high- and
mid-range HF and HF/VHF transceivers, will migrate down to the lower-priced
models such as the IC-718, IC-706 series etc.

Cheers for now, 73,

Subject: [ic7000] Unit Name

I wonder why Icom would use the same "name" for a new radio - "IC-
7000" - that they used for a unit a few years ago.

Just to make myself clear about all this: I am sure that the major
manufacturers will debut offerings at Dayton. But I am having trouble
believing that Icom will soon cease production of the '706, since it
is still selling extremely well.

And so it goes....
