I believe this is referred to as the Japanese "Radio of the Month 
Club".    :-)

I hate to burst anybody's bubble or belief system,  but Icom does do firmware upgrades and has been for about 5 year now. 

The Icom 7800, 7700, and the new rig 7600 are all upgradable.   I have owned a 7700 for about a year now and we have had two upgrades so far.  The 7700 is a great rig and really doesn't have any warts now that I am aware of.  

Just wanted to set the record straight...........Toby  W4CAK
