No, but I'd be interested in looking at those.

I've been asking them at IWCE the last couple of years about if/when they'd enter the 800MHz market. Glad to see they did. Competition is always a good thing.

Same thoughts here. About time Icom got serious about a 7/8 P25 subscriber. 7/800 P25 is all that is used in my region.

Probably similar to their competitive Kenwood models, and well below Motorola.

Was hoping they would come out with a multi-band product line. There is a huge demand for that.
