Re: - - - & IC-706 QSK

Jack R <jackr1@...>
 

Hi Guys,
Sorry I missed Dayton this year. Since so many IC-706 guys are on here, possibly someone can suggest how I can run my IC-706MKiiG - Ameritron ALS-500M combo on QSK mobile CW. It works great on semi-break-in, but doesn't even work full break-in with my QSK-5 unit.

If the IC-7000 is for real, IF it has clean QSK at 40-55 WPM, and IF it has provision for amp keying, I may be ready to get serious.
Can someone at Dayton check the IC-7000 for a CW-only ham?

Thanks & 73,
Jack W4SON - 9N1SON

I have 3, so I will be selling at least one of them.
I am using my work notebook, and can only leave messages via post

afternoon when I get back home to Georgia.

The girls that were mentioned walking aroud was kind of funny.
IThe girls were in pink bath robes and furry shoes with a Icom t-
shirt. I spoke to one at length, and they were from a local high
sschool and were employed by Icom. They said when they ran out of
the kits, Icom told them to go around and give away Icom stickers.

Sarah and Trevor were seen walking around with a guy with a camera.
So It looks like they may have another video to download from Icom's
website after Hamvention that promotes the hobby. If you had not
seen last years, its pretty good.

Re: Any news from Dayton?? YES

Tim Gennett <k9wx@...>
 

Just back from the Hamvention.

Icom had a number of attractive young ladies in pajamas and bathrobes walking throughout Hara, passing out vinyl cases that say "Are you still out here?!? IC-7000." The cases contain a small toothbrush, a package of toothpaste, coffee creamer and sugar. When asked what it meant, all they would say was to be at the main Icom booth at 10 am on Saturday (tomorrow).

I will not be able to get back to Dayton tomorrow. Makes me kinda mad.

706 series production

Nick Wall <nwall@...>
 

It seems strange that you are all talking of the end of the 706 series....
Nobody has said that it is to be discountiouned ! Just becasuse one
web site doesnt list it doesnt mean that production has stopped.
Icom has not stopped production of the 706 series ...so stop worrying...

Thanks for the pricing info. But I would have guessed the 706 had already
ceased production. What is the source of your info? If it is a dealer or
even ICOM America, why should we believe it?

R & L is selling the '706 for less than the MAP price. Just call them

Re: the end of IC-706 saga?

nicolasc33 <javier_ebay@...>
 

Yes, here retailers still have the 706, with some price cut (15% below
former price). Usual prices here are at least 30% higher than in USA.

So we have two posibilities a "Dayton special" price of 799.95USD or a
SALE OUT price of 799.95 (includes free RMK706). As maybe this price it
is not the normal price in USA as you suggest 950USD. Here the sale
price it is now 850 Euro, about 1071USD, but usualy due to EU tax, the
price in EU it is higher here than in USD in the US.

My question was simple "we carry full ICOM line, if you dont see it
call" it is not in the online catalog... so.. maybe someone could call
that 800 phone,and tell us.

The PDF full catalog is over 17Mb, very usefull, but not the fastest
way to search for a price.

So going back to my question: The 799,95 price printed in the PDF
catalog, is it a Dayton special, still not in the online catalog, or
is it a clearance sale out price? or both? It is difficult to believe
they removed it by mistake.

If (like in Spain) ICOM distributed a limited number of rigs, and R&L
put that 799.95 price in the web, they may have run short of them, so
they had to remove it from the web, even if still left on the PDF.

Here in Spain ICOM distributed ONLY 30 units at that low price, still
some available, but it is difficult to guess if it is a fixed time sale
promotion or a clearance sale, in any case I was told that ONLY 30
units.

Here in EU we have our "Dayton" in Friedrichshafen (Germany)june 24/26

Of course we are just gessing, this is what this group it is about
untill ICOM tells something. So we follow some clues... but we may be
fully wrong.

IC-746PRO (IC7400 here) had a 25% price cut in april, and I got one for
myself. I did not care for a PRO-II new version. At that price I could
be wrong. I love its DSP

So I am keeping a close eye on the 706. I think it is a superb rig.
With ICOM going full IF-DSP I just would like to see a clearout sale on
filters, that I think they are overpriced. This is the only weak point
I see in the 706. All the references I have about it from ICOM or free
lance repair services, is that it is a good rig (now MKIIG). And it is
the highest seller ever of Ham rigs.

Any of you in the US would mind to phone them at 800-221-7735 and
maybe post the reason for the IC-706 removal? maybe the IC-7000?

Major european seller http://www.wimo.de removed last month from its
online catalog the IC-7400 (IC-746PRO) but replaced it after few
days.

Same rumours as for the IC-7000 have circulated about a IC-746PROII,

spanish market.

Re: Icom IC-F7000?

nicolasc33 <javier_ebay@...>
 

My reference for price estimate is at least 1.100 Euro (here),
without a tuner. That is about 1.430 USD But taking in account,
general price differences Spain/USA, I would guess an USA price more
in the 1100 range than 1900.

Reduced prices of 706-II-G and 746PRO were 880 and 1480 Euro, That is
1144 and 1.924 USD, in here. Yaesu FT897D sells for (silly) 1250 USD
here. I guess price (in local dealer) of rigs here are about 130% the
price of an USA large dealer I check in internet (texas towers). I
guess price in local dealers there can be higher too.

Anyway ICOM is having an agresive price policy here, and is leading
the market. Price of accesories a bit high.

Regarding band scanner (if any) just to remember that 746PRO's is an
off-line scanner.

I figure out the rig to be a 706 ┬┐larger? with IF-DSP and some
aditional gadget, at the price of a 706-II-G plus one filter.

Anyway we will not see it here before september at least... So I keep
my eye in the 706 price.. just in case. I would be nice to have the
rig that has the sales record ever.

In the meantime I love my new 746PRO-I. Rabatted price has bounced up
again, that could mean that a possible "II" it is a bit delayed. ┬┐For
Friedrichshafen in late june?.

We have to wait. Like kids in Xmas eve.
