In addition:

A transverter is always possible to get on the 1.2 GHz band.
Use a IC-706 MK2/G or similar radio as a 28 MHz IF.

Transverters are available from DEMI and DB6NT and others, or homebrew 

Use the building block approach instead of the one box doing all.

Of course, integrating your system with different building blocks is
more complex than a "one box does all" approach.

The rumor is that the 910 radio may be discontinued.  The question I have is whether to quickly obtain the module in the event that this is also discontinued.  I would really appreciate any thoughts on what action I should take.  I do like ICOM products but find it difficult to get information about this type of situation.  Thanks for any input.
