Yes, but they changed the XFC button from that nice shade of green to
the same off-black as the rest of the keys.  Icom makes great radios,
but they need a new person in the Division of Front Panel Labels and

Lots of chat on the IC9100 list about the USB issues.  No one seems to
have a smoking gun but the consensus seems to be that the 7410 and
7x00 radios don't seem to have any issues with USB where the 9100
does.  Some ops have no USB issues at all.
