I concur with all of the comments that have been forth coming. I 
recently bought my IC-910H not knowing that the unit was going out of 
production. However, its replacement appears to be a Kenwood TS2000 type 
which includes HF as well as the satellite bands. Since I already have 
multiple HF capabilities, I wanted something that would be more 
satellite specific. I also have the old Kenwood TS711/811 units that I 
might sell but I have found them still good units even being over 25 
years old.

I have seen more and more 1.2Ghz activities in satellites and 
terrestrial and suspect that it will continue. In the meantime, HRO (Ham 
Radio Outlet) has reduced the price of the IC-UX910 unit to a nice 
value, and with their free shipping and no sales tax, I found it to be a 
good deal and bought one. It only took less than 5 minutes to install. I 
doubt if you would go wrong in the additional investment.

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.
