Well, it is not in production yet so no one has seen it. But with the spec
set to HF 100w in almost the same package as the 706…A/T is not possible....

Hello all,

I just received my Icom 756 Pro III last week and absolutely love it.
I am looking for a small backup Icom with an A/T. Does the IC7000
have such a thing ? I am visually impaired and use ACC 2 and ACC 1
to use comoputer control and also to run my amp. How do you subscribe
to this reflector ? Thansk es 73

Kind regards,
Marty.

I am planning on getting a digital voice recorder. The three hour version
is only about $20 or so and the 6 hour just a little more (IIRC). In the
meantime, I have a digital camera. I am setting up a little stand so the
camera points to the clock and radio. Since it can record motion video and
sound, I'll be using it when running counties on the county hunters net.
The memory I have only allows about an hour of recording which will be in
Quicktime format, but together with the clock, it will make transcribing the
calls to the log much easier. I can even post a run on the internet so the
county chasers can see what they sound like from the mobile's point of view.


My camera will mark the date on the still pictures, but the time can't be
stamped.

What other tricks are being used to log mobile QSOs?

Yes I did read this too. But IC-718 and IC-703 came after the IC-746
and still had the conventional filter concept.

I've been thinking that a neat project would be to build my own DVR that
includes a CI-V interface so that it can automatically record the
frequency and mode as well as the time. Have one button that would
record the frequency, mode and time along with a voice recording on the
first push; subsequent button pushes could append to the voice
recording. A second button would simply log the end time without
requiring a voice recording at all. I doubt I'll ever bother doing it,
but it's fun to think about...

Hi group, Dan here.(N1GXC) It looks like a nice rig and I'm going to
wait to see what the story is instead of buying a Yaesu 897-D or
other radio. I'd like it to be around $850-$1000 but I'll probably
choke on that one. I'm going to be doing some serious DXpeditions
this year so we'll see.

Hello to all and thank you to the moderator of this reflector.

Ever since I have seen the IC-7000, I have been reading and
talking about
it. Like most of us here, I have considered it the new IC-706
radio but
after all I have read and seen, I have begun to think that 7000 is
to the
706 what the 756 pro is to the 746 pro.

What weighs most strongly is the fact that it will use electronic
filtering
rather than the crystal lattice filter. If I recall, isn't this
the same
filtering technology used in the IC-7800, the $10,000 radio?

From what I gather, the 706 is the most popular mobile HF radio on
the
market with sales greatly exceeding its runner-up. Right now it
sells for
about $800 US. I realize that the cost of technology drops over
time, and
with inflation, prices rise a bit, but at this point I am
wondering if the
rig might not be priced considerably higher than the 706. Around
here, a
few hams are thinking it will be in the $1500 US range.

What do you all think?

I believe that Dave was referring to the IC-7000 itself. The 7000 will
replace the 706 line; I am speculating that there will also be a low-power
version to accommodate the Japanese 10W licence. It will replace the 703
series.

Buck, I agree. The new rig could be 2 - 3 times more than a 706 (I hope not). Just like the Pro3 is 3 times the price of a 746Pro. This is only conjecture on my part, but is based on the price of other new radios they have come out with. I guess we iwll not know until it happens.

Hmm, I think that's the same with mine. Maybe we should inform the
distributor that he needs to pack them better.

Thanks for the comments. It makes sense. I don't know what price the 706
came out as, but what they retail for now. I do know they went up in price
for a while. (I guess the dollar fell).

My first inclination was to say aroung $1300--didn't the 706 hover in
about that range for a while? However, $1500 puts it in the 746PRO price
range, which I don't think they'll want to do. Even $1300 puts it quite a
bit above its competitors in the mobile rig arena. I'm guessing about
$1100--a little higher than the TS-480 series, $300 or so above the
FT-857. It may start out higher, but drop fairly soon.

My guess is, since ICOM seems to be edging closer to using the same model
