IC-705 News

A new video from OH8STN this evening, about the latest IC-705 news, availability is expected April 2020 (In Japan) heres the vid:

What do you all think?

The price point is about what I expected it would be, they are looking at the KX2/KX3 market but I think this will attract more with its addition of VHF/UHF it should make a great portable radio for working satellite as well.

For me QRP isn’t really an attraction but 10watts will give us good results using digital modes such as JS8. I wont be pre-ordering just yet but Im planning to build a new portable QRO setup with one of these…..

…..when it is finally released here.
