Re: [IC-7000] IC-7000 PRICE

Matt Yellen

I don't work for ICOM any more. I never told anyone
to shutup, nor did I berate anyone. I simply told
everyone what the price was. I don't like to hear
people whine any more than you probably do, but I
already know that there will be people that will do

My point was that if you don't like the price or can't
pay it, then go buy another radio, don't whine about
it. If you want the radio then get it.

What good does it do to complain or say, well this
radio costs X or that radio is only X? It doesn't do
anything. Thats my point. If you are offended, then
there is nothing I can do. Its not an attack.

Basically you're telling people to shut up and quit
whining, and if they don't like it go with another
radio manufacturer?

I see you work for Icom (according to their press
release), so I'm wondering if you're speaking as an
Icom representative, and if the attitude you've
expressed here reflects Icom's attitude towards
their customers?

Is Icom telling present and future customers to shut
up and quit whining, and if they don't like it go
elsewhere? Okay then, my money will go elsewhere.

Now before I start, I already know that there will
be people, that so,
oh I heard this or I heard that. I am telling you
now. The STREET
price of the IC-7000, not LIST< STREET, will be
$1500. Don't even
bother commenting on what you think the price will
be. I KNOW the
price will be $1500. Oh yeah, and don't bother
flaming me about that
price either, it is what it is, and I know that
myself and many others
will be happy to pay it!

If you are one of the whiners, go buy the Yaesu
857 or Kenwood TS-
2000. You will get exactly what you pay for. I
am not saying they
are bad (although, I honestly don't think the
TS-2000 is a good
radio), they cost less and if they do what you
want, and the price is
attractive, then buy it.

You don't have to convince people that the 7800 is
worth the money, if
you can use a radio like that and you have the
money, you will buy
it. The radio sells itself, just like the new
