In the past there had been a discussion about different satellite radio's,
who produces them and their availability.
I recently purchased a IC-9100 just for satellite operations. I have not
seen much discussion about this radio on the Amsat BB. I am curious why
this radio has hardly been mentioned. It seems to be the perfect
replacement for my aging IC-821. Even has the "funny" little knobs, like
the 821, that control the RF power and mic gain. The IC-9100 has the look
and feel of a "real" radio.
Is it the price ? $2100.00 USD ? Not the cheapest rig out there. The
IC-7610 is "flying" off the shelves at $3900.00 USD. Can't be about the
Thanks for any comments - WB1FXX
