ICOM IC7300 – Time for a price drop?

Much to my surprise the price has still to fall, although there are “cracks”: some are now offering the rig with free gifts.

Personally, I can wait. It is a good rig, but to my mind, the dealers have had a very good time and very good profits.

Now is the time to drop the price. Sub £1000 (~$1,300) please – soon.

    Hi Roger!

    $999 after rebate a few weeks ago was the trigger I needed.

    A few weeks back HAM Radio Outlet (HRO) had that $999.00
    Deal on the Icon 7300. So it will come again.

    i’m not convinced as for the same money the yeasu ft-991a has more bands all mode plus c4fm to offer! so I am thinking more on this radio!!

    I ordered a 7610—Price? appx 34 hundred dollars! The place was running a special promotion for Black Friday.

    the downside—If i decidem to sell my 7600 I won”t get a lot for it ;-(

    Roger, do you know if it is any good on 2200m or 630m. Does
    it tune in 1Hz steps ?

    Hi so market forces are what drives the price. so given so many amateurs want this particular radio a price drop is hardly going to happen. so many now so keen to have a new model every time one appears. this is what keeps teh prices up.
