Re 4U...

BUT a great operator on a great 10 K plus hot front end rig who knows how to use it properly to its greatest use will rip to shreads the competition using lesser radios--atomspheric conditions being equal of course.

The Operator's Manual is downloadable from the IcomAmerica website.  I read through it and I don't see where you can hook up an external Monitor to view the scope information as you can with the 7700/7800.

I say buy the 7600.  Money is absolutely worthless unless you do something with it.  So, why hang on to money when it can be used to get something worthwhile.

I am a little suprised that Icom is replacing their $2600 Pro3 with a $4000 7600!  You would think that they would have priced a successor to the Pro3 in that same range, price-wise.  In any case, the 7600 looks like one killer transceiver!

The Icom looks to be a nice radio. But the price should have been with in $500 of the Pro III.. I hope to have the 7600 some day "most likely used". But if Icom is not careful they could price themselves out of the market. $4000 for a radio is a little high. If Kenwood and Yaesu keep the $1500 radios around, Icom could loose business back to the others. The IC 7600 could be a future replacement for the IC 7700 at $ 7000 it just may be a bit much for most hams.

I agree with K9KJM! I would get a Kenwood TS 2000 OR USED PRO 3 ! I have a Pro 3 and in the HF world no comparision ! In the world of radios though the TS 2000 really does alot ! HF TO VHF CROSSBAND repeat is a great feature! You can go mobile with a THD7 and use your base as an HF repeater! NOW HOW COOL IS THAT ? No pc for a remote ! So if you think it over buy a used PRO 3 and save the rest ! Or better yet save it for the new Kenwwood TS 8000 due out in Sept09. dual hf/vhf/uhf 200 watts!

This is the classic balancing between need and want; at the end buyers have to decide.

IF we listen to need all the time, Neiman-Marcus and Tiffany will close their doors.
If we listen to wants...., wait isn't that why economy is where it is now :-)

The soon to be updated 746 with color display will fall nicely into the old Pro III's price slot.

"IF we listen to need all the time, Neiman-Marcus and Tiffany will close their doors."

Both companies are having severe problems right now.

I can't find anything about a new Kenwood TS-8000 in Google
