Re: ICOM IC-905 VHF/UHF/SHF Announced - New Toys!

Graham (G4OED)

When they showed the SHF concept project at Dayton in May, they explained that all the RF circuitry was in a mast head box and that the only connection would be an ethernet cable.  So, maybe, one box per band (£300 ea?)

Just stay up until 01:10 tonight to find out!!!

Looks like 10GHz is an additional module.  Someone on Twitter announced the rumored price of the IC-905 is 130,000 yen (£800) + 50,000 yen (£300) for the 10 GHz optional module CX-10G but no formal confirmation of pricing yet.  Presumably, that would then require VAT giving a rough price of £1320.  This makes it close to the IC-705 price of £1400 which I wonder is where the price will end up.

Only a few hours to wait I guess.

That sounds very interesting.

If production models match the initial hype and specs (remember the 4m tx on the 705 !!) and they get the price right, they could easily pull another coup like they did with the 7300!
