Past ICOM patterns?


kitdalton_page <kitdalton_page@...>
 

What have the past ICOM patterns been for releasing new radios over
the years? Is ICOM France usually the fist place news is heard. Or is
this uncharacteristic? I was wondering if this would be a clue as to
if this is a Hoax or not.

This could well be a good clue as I dont't think it happens first in
France. Laws are too tight in terms of certification and thus making
things appear later in this territory.

I guess only time will tell, but I vote this is not a hoax.

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...

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.

I agree the the USA is the largest market, but when ICOM launched the Pro3, it is available in Europe several months before here in the USA

You are 100% right. It takes quite a while to get a new transmitter
approved in the USA.

I've heard not long ago that Japan was actually the largest amateur radio
market in the world with significantly more amateurs than the US.

This might bear looking into.

Ah - you beat me to it! Japan is indeed the largest market. Japan has
about half of the world's radio amateurs! The US has about 25%. The rest
of the countries have around 2% or less.

Yes they have had code free ham licenses for years and did not have disincentive licensing....

.....which has sparked the spectacular growth of Ham Radio and the associated electronics business...
