Sounds like some of us want the inverse of the 703, a "709". No HF, but
would have 6m, 2m, 432... maybe it would be a "cheap" radio then? Would
that make room for 220 or 1296 or maybe 900?

Oops, that sounded like the "dream radio" thread we already had a few
months ago.

To add to what some of the others said, ICOM really goofed on this one.
All they had to do was go to the FT-817 group archives and see the wish
list of items for a mk II.

If the 703 had all-mode VHF/UHF and a 10:1 internal tuner, I'd be
getting rid of my 817.  Alas, that's not the case.

Btw, I'll be using my 817 w/wa5vjb design tonight on 432 ssb/cw.
