Outstanding  Time owned: more than 12 months
Great transceiver. My second VHF radio after the Yaesu FT 736R. Exceptional.
Wonderful receiver and great sensibility in both the bands. Very interesting the output power. Beautiful and scratching modulation
The top for the traffic via satellite. I actually use for AO-15 and VO-52. He remains however the king of the VHF/UHF.

A jewel !  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I use this great VHF/UHF base for about 5 months and I am really impressed about the quality of that radio. I sold my IC-7000 to return "to the base" and I really don't regret. Nice built, robust and great audio. Indeed, the IC-970H matchs very well with my IC-7800 from a Quality and size point of view. According to me, even in 2013, this is the best VHF/UHF base that you can get for your shack !

Excellent!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had one for several years and it has been a joy to use. I like the big box size and it feels and operates as a quality piece of equipment it was designed to be should. Mine has the optional UX-97 installed and it operates wonderfully. If you have the room for it, and find a clean one, you won't be disappointed.

get one if you can  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have a 970 H, great radio for pure performance, quite , selective, well built, and you can add 1.2 Ghz. No DSP but I don't think much of DSP any way. If you can find one, you will like it, the dual hot receivers are nice.
