I hope the new Icom rig uses crystal filtering as well as DSP filtering.  I 
have not found a single DSP Only radio at any price that could contest better 
than an old crystal filter rig worth $500 to $1,000.

$5,000 to $10,000.  In my mind for less than that kind of bucks I could by 
either two used or two new rigs of excellent quality!
 To me it will be a toy for those who earn more money than know what to do 
with.  That is a problem I would like to experience but never have and 
probably never will.

 The new Icom 7800 could be as much as 12 months away.    They had the HF
 prototype on display at Dayton.   It looks a lot like the Icom classic 781 
 more color glitz and DSP and very high standards on low noise and sensitivity
 that is incredible.    But with the price range of $7,000-8,000 it should!   
 Get on 
 the list and get in line.
