Icom IC-R7000 Receiver

I've been wanting to pick up one of these fine radios to add to the shack. The Icom IC-R7000 is one of the most sophisticated, continuous coverage receivers on the used market today. It is a HF/VHF/UHF receiver/scanner that covers 25-2000 MHz.

But it was not to be, or not yet. I had found one for sale on the Ontario swap net, but the time it took me to twist the arm of the XYL was too long and it sold.

The build quality of the IC-R7000 is considerably above that of most consumer scanning radios. The R7000 will go down in history as the first multi-mode scanning receiver with real RF performance and serious build quality.
