Hi Mike,

In Europe, the old measures often linger on, but have been rationalised to
the metric system. In Germany, one can still buy "ein Pfund" (one pound) of
potatoes at the greengrocer's. One pound = precisely 0.5 kg. In Bavaria, one
orders "ein Mass Bier" (a measure of beer) at the pub. The "Mass" is a
1-litre mug.

Back to the IC-7000; its weight should be about the same as the IC-706MkIIG
- around 2.5 kg (5.5 lb, US or Imperial.)

Cheers for now, 73,
Adam VA7OJ/AB4OJ

Arrgh!! You're right. And I am a firm believer in the metric system, even
though living in the USA. My Dutch-born mother-in-law says that if she could
learn the US system at age 40+, everyone else can learn the metric system if
they start in school.

Are there any size specs on this radio yet? I wonder if it's going to
be larger, smaller or about the same size as the 706 series.

Check again on that airliner thing. Boeing has announced quite a few
sales of its new planes and cited some specifications that basically
undercut the AirBus cost per passenger mile.

If it's a hoax it's a good one.
Concerning the market: I doubt if France is a key market for Icom. To me
it looks that the USA is the biggest market for HAM radio gear so one should
expect the announcement and release in the USA. But since Airbus took over
the market for large jetliners from Boeing the Japanese might focus on
Chirac and his friends...

This could well be a good clue as I dont't think it happens first in

I spoke to Icom France (Country from where we first saw the ad) and
they confirmed that they expect to have more info shortly and that
the radio would see its days before the end of this semester.

By experience with the french market, it always takes longer than
expected but for the facts I have seen, I do believe there will
actually be one available this year.

That would be a good marketing idea, but I don't really tnink so as
it seems to me (IMHO) that guessing or knowing what we users expect
is not that difficult. However the difficult part is to materialize
the wishes into real radio with real consumer's small pocket
availability, thus selling good quantities and assuring net margins
at the manufacturer's expectations levels.

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,
