Great Rig with no issues at all

ICOM IC-746 Pro, Desktop HF/VHF Transceiver

I have owned this rig since 2001 and have had none of the backlight or final transistor amp issues that thr rig is famous for. I have made many, many contacts using only a Cushcraft R8 vertical and the internal tuner. The rig has always been in my shack except for being used in 4 field day events and it will be used in 2011 as well. I do both phone and cw with great success. DX contacts are plentiful and busting through pile ups also work well when I use my 811. I will admit I am going to purchase a Flex 3000 and move the 746 pro to a back up role only because it has fulfilled it's duty and I want to try SDR.

ICOM IC-746 Pro, Desktop HF/VHF Transceiver

I have owned this rig for 10 years now and it is always the one that everyone wants to work at our annual Field Day event! I have the a seven digit serial number rig so no early issue problems, from 80 - 2 meters with my R8 and end feed antenna system I work all over the world and keep up with my local club events as well. I also have three other rigs but the 746pro is and always has been my work horse. Sorry ICOM has drop it from the line but I hope the new pups will carry on the tradition as well!!! W2LGA
