Installation of the UT-122 APCO P25 digital unit in the IC-R9500 created an opportunity to take some interior photos of the receiver, with the cover removed.
The interior views are fascinating. The heavy duty die-cast chassis on which the electronics are mounted is most impressive. The workmanship is out of this world.
It is evident that the castings in the Icom receiver are of top quality; they fit accurately onto the chassis. This is NOT easily achieved.
Icom must have spent a fortune tooling up for this receiver. Perhaps this is one of the the reasons why it is so expensive.
