Icom ID-51: Colors

Straight out of the Baofeng and Realistic playbook (again proving there is nothing new), Icom is releasing a limited number of the ID-51 in a rainbow of colors (PDF).

Icom ID-51 D-Star HT

moleculo I'm really liking this Icom ID-51 D-Star HT. Not quite the swiss army knife of HTs like the VX-8, but really good at what it does #hamradioWed, Mar 27 13:40:14 from TweetDeck

New Radios? Yaesu FT-898A and Icom ID-51

KD8BIG's got a picture, but no info yet on the Yaesu FT-898A. This site says it is a hoax and in their version of the picture, you can see the misspelled "reciever."

G4ILO has some information and a picture of Icom's new HT, the ID-51. Julian says "However it is nice to see a manufacturer breaking the mould for HT user interfaces which have changed little for the last 20 years."  I've not been a ham for anywhere near 20 years, but coming from the IT world, it does appear they are starting to adopt other technologies to extend the capabilities of new radios. USB connections and SD cards - oh my!

Also at RigPix, a close-up of the ID-51.

I guess I am going to have to start checking out the RigPix site on a more regular basis.
