The FT817 successor may be announced at Dayton next year. If correct, this is about 3-4 years too late.
The ICOM IC703 is not being replaced by the 10W version of the IC7300 outside of Japan. Personally, I do not understand the major Japanese manufacturers. Surely there is a worldwide demand for a 5-10W SDR based, radio?
It seems the huge world-wide QRP market is not being well addressed by the Japanese. It is their loss. I think they are all nuts!
Ten-Tec seem to be struggling with their latest Argonaut judging by recent price cuts. See http://www.rkrdesignsllc.com/products/transceivers-receivers/ten-tec-model-539-argonaut-vi-qrp-1-10-watt-transceiver/ .
No, personally I think we are seeing QRPers getting a rough deal of late.
