The Prince of Rigs – The Icom IC-7600GE

Are you someone who thinks most of the Amateur Radio producers have lost the plot? Don’t have nearly £4,000 for a fully loaded Icom IC-9100 or 7600? Then you won’t be interested in the IC-7800 at nearly £8,000. You certainly will not be interested in the GE or gold editions of the Icom range of rigs. Suitable for your Saudi Prince or Billionaire if you need to ask the price you certainly cannot afford one. Gold plated with solid gold knobs and inset with real diamonds these rigs are individually customised to your personal requirements. The very existence of these radios has until now been only known to a select clientèle, but we at CQHQ have had a sneak peak at a IC-7600GE ready to ship to the Middle East. Here is the only known picture of one of the most expensive ham radios on sale today. Yes that is a huge diamond in the tuning knob and smaller diamonds around the volume, RF gain etc.


  1. The price is of course £41,000 payable over four years in four charges equal to you RSGB Mastercard.

    Happy April Fools day!

    My thanks to my son Adam 2W0DPI for the bling job. Adam is a graphic artist who describes his job as mainly taking fat people out of photographs to go in holiday brochures.

  2. That is roughly $66,366 here in the states.
