The Icom brand reputation speaks for itself. Great products.
Very clear and reliable reception. I receive clear transmissions from distances I couldn't with my old radio. I love its small size because I have limited space in my center console. Good instructions for enabling DSC. Operation very instinctive. I recommend it to any one regardless of space.
I purchased the radio around July 2013 and used it extensively offshore. I'm very happy with it. Thomas F. Ogle
