IC-9100 an Icom Dream at a nightmare price

It has finally arrived in the stores! The ham radio dream machine the Icom IC-9100 is available at all the major dealers at a price designed to keep it a dream. At a best ‘introductory’ price of £2,999.00 for the basic model it is double what I think is a fair price and then there are the extras.

The Icom IC-9100HX which includes 23cm’s is around £3499.95 and the list price is £3622.99.
If you want D-Star without 23cms the IC-9100 D-STAR is £3099.95 and that lists at £3176.20.
For the fully loaded IC-9100HX D-STAR is £3599.95 with a list price £3797.89.

This makes it one of those radios where travelling to the US or Asia to pick one up is actually cheaper than getting it from a UK dealer. If you really want one now, do not delay as although all the dealers have them there are limited stocks and at that price it might just be the last batch. All I can hope for is that it sells like hot cakes and I can pick up a IC-910X and IC-7400 as folk ditch them for the new toy.
