QST just reviewed this receiver, and it seems to be quite the performer!  http://icomamerica.com/en/products/amateur/receivers/r8600/Icom-R8600-QST-product-Review.pdf

Yes, I saw the review yesterday. There had been speculation about low sensitivity on the VHF Air band.
The review states that it's use on the upper VHF/UHF Ham bands would benefit from an external preamp.
I use mast mounted GaAsFETs on 2M and 70 cm. Sure helps, even with large antennas and hardline......
