heyas!

I have been researching a bit about some ICOM radios, like the IC7000 radio and IC2500 scanner, and there seems to be some debate in the supply world about what is what.

It seems all websites that sell ICOMs don't say if they're supplying a grey import or an Australian version product. ICOM Australia say they wont cover and ICOM unit that is not an Australian version and refer to them as Grey Imports.

Some website sellers argue that ICOM Australia is selling the same products as they are. I think the genuine ones are made in Japan and non genuine are Chinese?

This is a bit of a concern if you don't know much about what is happening or what products are real or copies.

Has anyone got any info on this issue?

Has anyone bought an ICOM radio that is Chinses made, and any comments about it?

I would have thought it’d be illegal to sell a copy of a product in Australia, but it seems there’s quite a few businesses doing it.

Thanks for any info anyone can give me!
