I'll correct you again. You can easily get a new DMR radio (including a TRBO portable) which is comparable to your IDAS radio for under $1,000. They all have busy channel indicators.
Even the lowly Astro Saber which sells for under $100 has one.
Perhaps you should be asking ICOM why they don't have one?
