New Icom ID-51


The well awaited for Icom ID-51 will soon be made available within the UK.

Looking at the prices around the world (as I do), the UK offers the best price £399.95 ex VAT.

You need to remember if you get one from overseas the warranties differ from 6 years to one year, and you will have to send it back to the Country where you got it from for warranty repairs. I’ve heard that some Icom agents refuse to service equipment out of warranties bought from other countries.

Nice radio again pity it does not do DV on both memories, A & B.

Also as I travel around the world and the UK or European version will not let you transmit out of band I will get a American version.

Whilst in Dayton last year I asked Icom why they cannot use the GPS data to determine where you are and then allow you to use the Transceiver as your terms of your licence in other countries.
