New Icom Radios - R8600 and R30

Icom have just announced two new wide band receivers. 

The R8600 is a replacement for the R8500, which is a wide band base receiver. 



The R30 is the replacement for the R20 handheld receiver.

I have personally owned both the R8500 and R20 in the past and found both to be excellent radios. If both of the new receivers can keep "the best bits" of the previous models and add some modern touches then I think Icom will be on to a winner.
