Quality of Construction and Features  Time owned: more than 12 months
Icom can always say they have made quality Rigs since I bought my first IC 730 mobile rig in 1981 the button construction with back lit numbers, letters and solid feel when pushed I had a ic 900A in my shack in 1987 along with 5 band units. I used it to cross band for years during the 90's I've just picked another up to add to my mid 1980's collection. I'm glad to report this IC 900A performs as well as any VHF/UHF rig I've owned, even the HM 14 microphone is just Pure Quality. Try one You'll love it. Sincerely, John De ka1klo

Far ahead of it's time  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is a very versatile radio that can be assembled with up to 6 separate band units to cover most everything but the lower HF bands. It isn't quite as compact as rigs today but the construction is rugged and the radio reliable. I have two of them and have been very satisfied with their performance. It's a shame they are no longer being made.
