ICOM ?...... Several years ago after a long experience with equipment kenwood, I decide to buy a car radio Icom IC-706MK2G, I must say that he has always worked perfectly on all four bands. Now the use permanently is at home for VHF and UHF fantastic!
A short time ago decide to renew the station and I bought an IC-756PROIII. I am still experimenting. But so far I feel very good, both transmission reception. Excellent filtering receiver particularly in CW mode. Even the audio system works very well. Congratulations Icom.

I bought the IC-756 PRO III after researching the radio for a year. I re-read the QST product review, some articulate, informative comments found here on e-ham, other technical reviews and the comments in the yahoo group.
I was suspicious of this radio at first because of all of the rave reviews of the flashy spectrum scope and I wondered if the radio was as technologically advanced as it was pretty.
My goal, as a CW enthusiast, was to find a radio with superior filtering, low ringing in extremely narrow bandwidths and DSP noise reduction that wasn’t as noisy with artifacts and quantization noise as the noise reduction on my Kenwood TS-570D(G).
I visited HRO San Diego, test drove the radio and was impressed immediately. There are more interference fighting features than I’ve ever had available. I like the graphical display of the filter as I widen or narrow the bandwidth with the double passband tuning. The adjustable noise blanker is excellent, as I can control it to prevent it from distorting what I’m listening to in the presence of other strong signals.
The noise reduction left me very impressed. Interference from an unknown source (the power lines are buried) can be reduced, although not eliminated. The adjustable DSP eliminates most noise by preserving the signals I want and discarding what I want. With my old radio, I’d eliminate static and atmospheric noise, but always seemed to trade it for DSP noise. Not with this radio.
I haven’t tried the SSB or data modes, except for the RTTY decoder, and it’s a nice bonus.
I feel fine about the amount of money I spent on the PRO III. It’s the most I’ve ever spent for a ham radio, but has definitely been worth it so far. And yes, the spectrum scope was a factor in my decision. It's like having a built-in spectrum analyzer. Being able to spot activity without moving the tuning dial on adjacent (or distant) frequencies in an instant is very convenient.
