Maybe I am hallucinating, but didn't Icom make a dual band, HF, mobile receiver some years ago? Could it have been in the 2100 or so series? It resembled, physically, the newer dual band VHF/UHF transceivers with the detachable head...Any assistance would be appreciated!

This is the best list that I can find of discontinued ICOM mobile rigs. Don't see one with HF. I think that Kenwood made one with 10 meters though.

Did you mean transceiver?

IC-706MKIIG HF/VHF/UHF All Mode Transceiver ... Had a detachable faceplate.

Nice rig.

Absolutely correct, and it was more than dual band too, it went up to 3.0GHz if memory serves me correctly.

Fancy SOFAR tell you that you meant a transceiver like you're a dodo...  Roll Eyes.

I knew exactly what you meant, as prior to being a Ham I lusted after one too Smiley. Seem rare these days - I don't think specs were anything fantastic but what a novelty!

AND decent price!  New old stock in box might be nice.

Do you believe in Unicorns? Smiley
