That's cause hams have not discovered waveguide. :lol: :lol: :lol:rcvmo said:. . . The TX/RX has to be mounted on the pole within a couple feet of the TX/RX to reduce line loss, no matter what expensive cable your using.
Why don't they rename it a "Test receiver" and leave the 800 MHz band in. :twisted: :lol: :twisted:kg4icg said:now you know this radio is the ic9000 replacement and it's going to be in the 10k plus range on dollars. so don't get your mouth watering too much. and Icom kind of butchers the 800 band when trying to keep the cellphone frequencies out.
Yeah, I think that's the exact look they're going for. They want to to look like expensive high end lab type gear.Yokoshibu said:is it just me or does it look like a Rhode and schwartz ?
Simply buy it from someone outside the US. It's done all the time they say. That and if it is used unit it would be legal I guess. Maybe. Kinda. Or something.NE9N said:Hey Fellas!! I find it strange that all of these super radio receivers such as the Icom R-9000, AOR AR-ONE, & AR-ALPHA are all being labled for EXPORT OR GOVERNMENT USE ONLY!!! How can anybody outside of these restrictions obtain one of these receivers??? I woulden't mind having one or all three of these in my radio shack!!!!! By the way does anybody know what the penalty would be for a company to sell any of these radio receivers to the general public?????
