<grinning> There are ALWAYS a LOT of rumors. (The remark about OBB comes
to mind.) There is only one that traces back as well as the French ham
radio magazine. And, not knowing the magazine's reputation, I cannot
say for sure I even trust it. But there are ALWAYS rumors. (Joe told
Bill who told me that someone at ICOM in Slobovia said......)

That's just a quibble. So call me "The Quibbler" in honor of my cousin
"The Riddler".

I have read Megahertz for about 10 years during mid 80's and I can confirm that it is a solid circulation.
In fact, when the rumor came out, I was surprised that it was from them since they are too serious sometimes for such rumors.

Thank you for the info. I had rather suspected they'd be a reputable
source. But it doesn't heart to check.

End of June then...we will see it at Dayton in May.

I was concerned that it would be introduced much later at Japan hamfair
2005 in August, but looks like earlier introduction.

Marty, thanks for the good catch. It is a good reality check.

I would not call this information "rumors" anymore. The radio is real
and is coming soon.

We can only speculate on the specifications.

For what it's worth (not much in my opinion) I was just reading the mail and
heard a ham say he called his buddy at HRO today to ask if the price of the
706MkIIg had gone up (it had). When he said "Is the rumor true", his buddy
thought he was asking about the IC-7000 and said all the rumors about it coming
out were false. Like I said, for what it's worth.

I think just few people at retail level know about it...not a buddy
type at HRO. I think senior level management or such will know.

We just wait and see. The 706 is an old but good radio. I got mine from
the first shipment back in the 90s. It is just time for a replacement.

Furthermore, looking at the R&D of Icom, they are done with the
ultimate rig, the 7800, they are done with the replacement for the
756pro series, one should ask what they were designing next and that
will be a mobile radio to replace the 706mk2g.

Also, keep in mind that nobody saw the Pro3 coming....the pro2 is still
on sale. So anything is possible.

Hi Best (or should I call you MKM or mab?)

Actually, my good friend Matt KK5DR and I claim bragging rights for
predicting a radio quite similar to the IC-756Pro3 as far back as mid-2003.
We even came up with a hypothetical "precursor" to the IC-7800 which was
not to far off the actual product.

Hi Adam,

Yes, I know! I have been following your site on that topic in the past.
You bet.
Your site is well informative.

MKM or mab is fine for now:)


p.s. that Kenwood / Icom deal worries me a little. We need more info on
that. Kenwood has deep pockets and I would not want Icom to disappear.
Yaesu & Standard did a similar takeover in the past.

Look at it this way...HRO is trying to sell thier current stock of
706Gs. They're not going to admit to something that might cost them a
sale.
I've gotten the same response from the guys at my local store, only
to stop by a week later and see the asked about product sitting on
thier counter

Dr. Howard S. White <drpaper@...>
 

My local HRO is already admitting to the IC-7000 when they took my order and later confirmed the expected delivery..

They sell a lot of 706's every week so it is not a stocking issue as they will run through on hand stock several times before June
