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.

<< Depending on who I talked to from Icom the mentioned potential price was
$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!
the list and get in line.
