On 12/29/2010, theFCCreleased the approval information for the new IcomIC-7410HF(only) transceiver, the replacement to the very popular Icom 746 Pro. I've attached a copy of the test report submitted to theFCCon behalf of Icom for those interested. According to the schedule, the user manual will be released to the public 02/01/2011, so we should start seeing these new rigs hitting the shelves soon! Pricing hasn't been confirmed yet, but educated guesses for the American market have it priced below $2000.
Here is a list of some of the released information on theIC-7410:
Uses the same 32 bit floating point DSP and double conversion super-heterodyne system as the IC-7800/IC-7700/ IC-7600 series.
