Can you share any model numbers that have 220?

For 222 SSB/CW there is the Icom 375.  The Yaesu FT736 also does 222mhz SSB/CW/FM if it has an optional module installed.

So does this come with 220 MHz ? Or will Icom (like all the other manufacturers) continue to 'forget' that this band exists?

Sure they make 220 Mhz FM HT's, but what about SSB/CW rigs ? No manufacturer produce an SSB/CW 220 mhz? You mean to tell me that the North American market isn't big enough to include 220 mhz in these multi-band, multi-mode radios? 70 Mhz is not a ham band here in the U.S. but yet there are multi mode rigs that over 70 Mhz, so why is 220 Mhz excluded?

QYT KT-7900D

Some Chinese quad band rigs have 220

Can you share any model numbers that have 220?

Way to go Icom. At this rate it looks like my shack will have at least one Icom rig, maybe two.   Smiley

These should sell like hotcakes to hungry hams.  If anyone doubts that Icom has become the industry innovator and leader, well they have no eyes. The thing that I fear is that many of the  competitors, will disappear.  And that will not be a good thing.

Indeed, good for Icom. And it's definitely in our best interests that the other manufacturers innovate and thrive as well.

if the ic-9700 will also be satellite capable (ie full duplex like the ic-9100, ts-2000, and the older ic-910, ft-847, etc), it will be easier for me to decide to get one.

It doesn't look like it covers 6 meters either, I hope I'm wrong.

No it does not cover 6.
Most HF rigs nowadays have 6 already.

Wasting your breath, they can't/don't want to see any further than the end of their nose.......and when the market goes all pete tong they'll, of course, be the first to start crying like babies.

This radio will really upset 'ole FLQ who hates anything newer than his stump trained sheep. ha ha

Plus, all the dummies who dislike the IC-7300 because they don't know what an RF Gain control or Attenuator does. "too much gain", etc. SMH
Really sad to see the dumbing down of Amateur Radio.....

This radio will be yet ANOTHER game change for Icom.......

Agreed.  I see another big winner here.   Yes, the folks that give the 7300 a black eye that run preamp 2 on the lower bands and wonder why it overloads.  (shakes head).

Yes I'm still a hold out using the Yaesu FT736R on 222 and the other bands they cover. I still have 2 of them and spare modules for 6 meters, 222MHz and 1296Mhz.
The ICOM IC375 are  rare as Hen's teeth...

Hi Ed. Here in the USA, DXEngineering is already taking pre-orders. Initially, it was listed as
HF+6M, 2, 432, 1296.
They were quickly corrected.

Too bad it will not include HF and DSTAR.  It would have been a good replacement for the IC-9100.
