Hello to all,

the ICOM IC7800 is a very nice TRX and I have spend a lo of time with this 
radio. The IC7800 has a better display, the tuningknobs are much better and 
of course the finish is so beautiful. But what I want to do with a radio? I 
want to heare clear signals and i wan´t to have a good receiver, the 
transmitting is not the problem. So I have the choice between a nice looking 
radio and a radio with great performance and thats why I am using an 
ORIONII. You are still waiting for an softwareupdate but I don´t know why? 
The ORION is so much better than other radios and the TEN TEC People are so 
nice!!!!!! Have you ever send an email to YAESU ore ICOM when your TRX is 
broken and get an answer? By the TEN TEC folks you can be shure. I have send 
an FT100D to the Netherlands and I have never get an answer. After three 
month my TRX comes repaired back with no comment!!

sorry for my bad english

Certainly the IC-7800 is a very nice radio with a lot of "creature
comforts", but for a loss of 15 dB of IMD performance, no thanks!
