Unit Name


Clint Bradford <clintbrad4d@...>
 

I wonder why Icom would use the same "name" for a new radio - "IC-
7000" - that they used for a unit a few years ago.

Just to make myself clear about all this: I am sure that the major
manufacturers will debut offerings at Dayton. But I am having trouble
believing that Icom will soon cease production of the '706, since it
is still selling extremely well.

And so it goes....

Hi Clint,

The only instances of the 7000 model number of which I am aware are the
IC-R7000 receiver and the IC-F7000 DSP-based commercial/marine HF-SSB
radiotelephone.

Icom is in the process of replacing its entire analogue HF product line with
DSP-based designs. As high-performance ADC, DSP and DAC IC's become more
cost-effective, this change, which already includes Icom's high- and
mid-range HF and HF/VHF transceivers, will migrate down to the lower-priced
models such as the IC-718, IC-706 series etc.

"In technology, there are only two degrees of freedom: forward and down.
There is no backwards."

Cheers for now, 73,

"IC-7400" is actually the "world-wide except North America" model name. On
the IC-7000, I would be hesitant to speculate at this time. We will have to
wait and see.

I'm betting on the IC-7000 designation. We have the IC-7800 already in the
U.S.

My second choice is IC-706PRO. I don't think it will be 706MkIIGPRO!!
