The DX Engineering order information for the brand new ICOM IC-9700 has been updated. Perhaps this was just wishful thinking or a mistake as it shows the new transceiver as being “in stock” and available to ship today though no price is listed.

All-mode VHF/UHF/1.2GHz in a package without HF. What’s not to like?

I expect the price to be under $1500 US but that’s just a guess. I’d like to know the price. I’d like to know if it supports satellite mode. I’d like to order one. I’m ready. Giddy up!
