Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dave Zantow (N9EWO), who shares the following:
For your listening pleasure. Here is the best video yet showing the Icom IC-R8600’s Sync Detector in use.
Sounds like Icom “finally” got the Sync Detector performance right with the R8600. Appears to greatly reduce fading distortion, where as with the expensive IC-R9500 it does not help much with fading distortion (if at all).
Good news indeed !!
I agree, Dave. This is most promising indeed!
I look forward to checking out the IC-R8600 at the Dayton Hamvention this year.
