I am looking at an Icom 746 Pro with a serial number 2024784.

Can anyone tell me how old it is ?

Hi,
I can't tell you how old yours is but as a data point, mine is s/n 0207499 and was purchased in January 2008 from HRO.  Of course I have no way to know how long my rig may have been in inventory before being sold to me, but I suspect HRO has enough sales volume that items turn over rather quickly.  Have you contacted Icom to see if they could give you a specific manufacture date?

By the way, mine has had no problems whatsoever.

Good Luck,
N5VTU

I bought mine new in 02' and it has a much lower SN (02xxx - yes, only 5 digits). It has performed well so I wouldn't worry too much about the age.

Good luck, Jim
