Hi: There is an Icom R-75 available locally in the $300-$350 range... I am thinking of it as a nice radio for DX-ing and general shortwave listening. Any thoughts, any things to look out for?

Thanks

Jon

Not that I know of. This is, I recall, the descendent of the R70, and is a nice general coverage RCVR.

It will be a definite step up from the R-1000 (not that the R-1000 is bad, the R-75 is just more feature-laden and you'll probably notice it to be a bit better in sensitivity and selectivity).
