May or June?


Dr. Howard S. White <drpaper@...>
 

One of the benefits of putting the IC-7000? on order is that once your money is on the line someone will talk to you...Last week, Icom was denying that the product even exists.. so Saturday I put an IC-7000 on order at HRO..

Today I was told by my salesman at HRO, that "ICOM WAS NO LONGER DENYING ITS EXISTENCE" and I could expect delivery May or June... depending on the time for FCC type acceptance.

Based on what happened with the IC-756 Pro 3 .. Put it on order in August... They began US deliveries in December...

So I may actually get one by June..

whatever it is ......

[NO ONE HAS SEEN ANY SPECS... SO NO INANE QUESTIONS PLEASE]

and whatever it costs....

[THE PRICE HAS NOT BEEN SET.. SO NO INANE QUESTIONS PLEASE] ....

Admit it. If she ever stopped trying to look like a million dollars
you'd drop her in a flash.

No argument.. which is why she gets away with it being necessary...

Now If I could only figure out a way for Ham gear to enhance male "sex appeal"

Send your liberated wife out to work, and tell her you want 50% of her
salary. I don't have that problem because I am single (never married)

As far as the IC7000 goes, I am ordering an additional IC-706mkiiG
while I can still get one. Icom has apparently pushed through a
sizeable price rise for the IC-706mkiiG, their motives aren't exactly
clear. I think that owning two IC-706mkiiGs will do me fine for the
forseeable future, even if I do go to live in Israel, as I have dreamed.

Does anyone know if the AT-180 fully automatic antenna tuner will be
the companion to the IC7000, or does the IC7000 have an on-board
antenna tuner? Maybe Icom will come up with something cheaper as the
matching antenna tuner to the IC7000. I am paying CDN$699 for my
second AT-180 The AT-180 is a very good fully automatic antenna
tuner, it just sits quietly beside my IC-706mkiiG and guarantees me a
1:1 SWR wherever I go. The un-nice thing about the AT-180 is its
price. Also, it does not tune random wires, the tuning range is not
that great. It's fine for coax.

Hi Keith,

Your wish is my command, Effendi. I was just looking for an excuse.

This thread is now closed.

I would like to appeal to all group members not to exploit the relative
paucity of substantive IC-7000 information by starting off-topic and
irrelevant threads. Rob and I cannot sit on top of this thing 24/7; we also
have lives to lead.

Hi Ya'akov,

Given that the IC-7000 will be the same size as the IC-706MkIIG (except 20mm
shorter), it will not have an internal ATU. The AT-180 and AH-4 will still
be compatible with it. Icom has always maintained an excellent level of
accessory compatibility across its HF product line.

If you wish to erect random wire antennas, you will need the AH4 (or an
SGC-23X series coupler). The AT-180 was expressly designed to match loads
within a 3:1 VSWR excursion to 50 ohms resistive.

The thread relating to wives etc. has just been closed.
