Default SECRET ICOM SALE: R-75 $425 w/ DSP and Free shipping

Hi guys. I have some good news for some of you interested in purchasing some
Icom products during their "secret sale". It all started when I wrote HRO
www.hamradio.com and asked them about giving the community a
Christmas/Holiday deal. Well, we got it!

This is the deal. On Sat Oct 16th there will be a secret sale at HRO. The
price marked for the R-75 will stay the same $525 but, if you order on Sat,
you will get $50 off on TOP of the $50 rebate. Meaning, you'll be charged
only $475 for it. Then after rebate you pay $425 for a brand new R-75 with
Free DSP and Free shipping. What a deal! Plus, if you read the letter down
below from the person at HRO, you will find hidden deals on other radios
too.

If you don't wish to wait till sat, just order right now before stock runs
out and write this in the comments box "Please Apply Icom Day Discount" The
order won't be processed till sat the 16th and will ship on Mon. Just read
the bottom letter from me to HRO and HRO's letter back to me. Great deals!

You'll see more posts from me on this matter so don't get upset. I hope some
of you guys spread the word and cross post this for me.
Thanks

Glenn, your timing could not be better.

Here's the deal .. we have a 'secret sale' on Saturday.
I cannot advertise it, as Icom will not permit us to advertise in the
national magazines and I cannot advertise this on our web page either.

However, all orders submitted on Saturday October 16th on-line will get this
special Icom Discount, even though it is not displayed on our web page.

You CAN provide all the details for the order in advance, but I will run the
order Saturday - just put in the comments field "Please apply Icom Day
Discount" .. the order has to be run in our system on Saturday, so it would
ship Monday the 18th in most cases.

The Icom Day Discount discount is

$10 on Icom handhelds [all Icom ham transceivers, and includes all Icom
handheld receivers as well]
$20 on Icom mobiles [includes 706, 703 and PCR1000 series]
$50 on HF radios [not including 706/703] but includes the R75 and R8500
receivers
$100 off on the PW1 amp and IC7800

So, the bottom line is I can sell you this radio for $475 .. and you send in
the $50 rebate from Icom bringing the final price price to you as $425

Feel free to send this message to anyone you know ..

Hi gentleman

I'm looking to buy one of your products, the Icom R-75. Right now it's
$525 with a $50 rebate bringing it to $475. I know it's cheap to some
people but I'm going over my budget for a radio but have my heart set on
this one!

My question and suggestion is this. Will you please run that special again
where the end price was $450 like you once did? If you dropped the price to
$500 I'd buy one right away. My suggestion is to run a Christmas/Holiday
special in Oct for say one or two days. Yes really. It's only 2 months away
actually. If you did, I'd plaster it all over the radio forums to let people
know about this great deal and show my appreciation.

If you find it in your saleman's heart to run a little extra special
"can't turn it down" deal for $500, let me know and I'll buy one right
away.

Thank you guys
Glenn

Think about all the nimrods on eBay hawking "like new" units for $400+.....

......this is so typical of Icom. When you buy a new radio, wait a couple of
months, they'll either discontinue it (Icom Pro I, II, II) or they'll slash
the price...or both!

$425 for an R-75....sheesh! Bet there are alot of poor SOB's that paid full
boat when that radio was introduced, what was it about $599 plus another
$100 for the DSP?

Yes, it was introduced in 1999 so it's not that old but still almost 5 years
is not that recent either. You have to remember, this sale was more for
private customers in the know because it was unannounced except by me.
But I think it's worth $425 for sure right?

Brand new with dsp and free shipping too. But I guess I would kind of upset
to see it this cheap. But other people got deals on it too I think.

Five years? Isn't it about time to start hearing rumors of a new replacement
for the R75?

Maybe,

but good radios are good for years. I myself bought a Yaesu FRG-7 which is
like 25 years old. I got one in great condition and it works fine. Many
people are after old radios cause in many cases they were built better and
have a personality all their own. Look at how many people want 30 year old
tube radios?

I hate to jump in here and add that it wasn't too private as at the bottom of
the email you received it states "Feel free to send this message to anyone you
know .." (read more further below).

Nothing wrong with it, but as one reads the email you received, you, and perhaps
others are being used as shills by both ICOM and HRO.

Perhaps,

but you forget I contacted them, not the other way around. And, I don't
think saving $100 on the R-75 is looked upon as a price that needs shilling
to me. But that's my take.

What about HRO? Aren't they considered an extremely reputable vendor? That's
what I was told but I haven't been around radios dealers as long as you.

Discount" .. the order has to be run in our system on Saturday, so it
would
ship Monday the 18th in most cases.

The Icom Day Discount discount is

$10 on Icom handhelds [all Icom ham transceivers, and includes all
Icom
handheld receivers as well]
$20 on Icom mobiles [includes 706, 703 and PCR1000 series]
$50 on HF radios [not including 706/703] but includes the R75 and
R8500
receivers
$100 off on the PW1 amp and IC7800

So, the bottom line is I can sell you this radio for $475 .. and you
send
in
the $50 rebate from Icom bringing the final price price to you as $425

Feel free to send this message to anyone you know ..

Hi gentleman

I'm looking to buy one of your products, the Icom R-75. Right now
it's
$525 with a $50 rebate bringing it to $475. I know it's cheap to some
people but I'm going over my budget for a radio but have my heart set
on
this one!

My question and suggestion is this. Will you please run that special
again
where the end price was $450 like you once did? If you dropped the
price
to
$500 I'd buy one right away. My suggestion is to run a
Christmas/Holiday
special in Oct for say one or two days. Yes really. It's only 2 months
away
actually. If you did, I'd plaster it all over the radio forums to let
people
know about this great deal and show my appreciation.

If you find it in your saleman's heart to run a little extra special
"can't turn it down" deal for $500, let me know and I'll buy one
right
away.

Thank you guys
Glenn

but you forget I contacted them, not the other way around.


I didn't forget a thing, that's an assumption on your part.

And, I don't
think saving $100 on the R-75 is looked upon as a price that needs shilling
to me. But that's my take.

But I think it's worth $425 for sure right?


I hate to jump in here and add that it wasn't too private as at the bottom
of
the email you received it states "Feel free to send this message to anyone
you
know .." (read more further below).

Nothing wrong with it, but as one reads the email you received, you, and
perhaps
others are being used as shills by both ICOM and HRO.

Just my .000002 cents worth.

Brand new with dsp and free shipping too. But I guess I would kind of
upset
to see it this cheap. But other people got deals on it too I think.

$400+.....

.....this is so typical of Icom. When you buy a new radio, wait a
couple
of
months, they'll either discontinue it (Icom Pro I, II, II) or they'll
slash
the price...or both!

$425 for an R-75....sheesh! Bet there are alot of poor SOB's that paid
full
boat when that radio was introduced, what was it about $599 plus
another
$100 for the DSP?

Hi guys. I have some good news for some of you interested in
purchasing
some
Icom products during their "secret sale". It all started when I wrote
HRO
www.hamradio.com and asked them about giving the community a
Christmas/Holiday deal. Well, we got it!

This is the deal. On Sat Oct 16th there will be a secret sale at HRO.
The
price marked for the R-75 will stay the same $525 but, if you order on
Sat,
you will get $50 off on TOP of the $50 rebate. Meaning, you'll be
charged
only $475 for it. Then after rebate you pay $425 for a brand new R-75
with
Free DSP and Free shipping. What a deal! Plus, if you read the letter
down
below from the person at HRO, you will find hidden deals on other
radios
too.

If you don't wish to wait till sat, just order right now before stock
runs
out and write this in the comments box "Please Apply Icom Day
Discount"
The
order won't be processed till sat the 16th and will ship on Mon. Just
read
the bottom letter from me to HRO and HRO's letter back to me. Great
deals!

You'll see more posts from me on this matter so don't get upset. I
hope
some
of you guys spread the word and cross post this for me.
Thanks

Glenn, your timing could not be better.

Here's the deal .. we have a 'secret sale' on Saturday.
I cannot advertise it, as Icom will not permit us to advertise in the
national magazines and I cannot advertise this on our web page either.

However, all orders submitted on Saturday October 16th on-line will
get
this
special Icom Discount, even though it is not displayed on our web
page.

You CAN provide all the details for the order in advance, but I will
run
the
order Saturday - just put in the comments field "Please apply Icom Day
Discount" .. the order has to be run in our system on Saturday, so it
would
ship Monday the 18th in most cases.

The Icom Day Discount discount is

$10 on Icom handhelds [all Icom ham transceivers, and includes all

$20 on Icom mobiles [includes 706, 703 and PCR1000 series]
$50 on HF radios [not including 706/703] but includes the R75 and
R8500
receivers
$100 off on the PW1 amp and IC7800

So, the bottom line is I can sell you this radio for $475 .. and you

What about HRO? Aren't they considered an extremely reputable vendor? That's
what I was told but I haven't been around radios dealers as long as you.


Sure, they are reputable. But that has nothing to do with the so-called 'private
sale' you describe.

One has to figure if they are having a 'sale' then they'll want to 'sell' as
many units as they can.

Something to think about.
