Icom IC-9700 in 2019?

Ham Radio Deluxe Satellite Tracker

Back in 2001 or 2002 – I tried playing with satellites – and had two M2 “Eggbeater” antennas, a Kenwood TS-2000 and an ICOM IC-910H. It was fun – but my pursuit of DXCC took over my ham life completely.

Having worked just about everything I want DX wise – it might be a good time to get back into satellites and possibly EME. EME sounds like a lot of fun – but I don’t want another amplifier, and it seems like you really need power for that mode. However – just receiving EME could be fun.

I’m not sure it will be worth the cost – and since the rig won’t be released until 2019, there is no rush – but its interesting to think about the possibilities anyway.
