Happy 2009!

Another year has come and gone.  As a matter of policy, we don't remember the bad stuff - we only look forward to good stuff and hope you have lots of good stuff for 2009!

Speaking of good stuff, ICOM's Federal GSA group has just published their winter newsletter.  Normally, this information is primarily directed to those who are involved in the marketing and distribution of ICOM products to government users.  However, there is some really good information in this newsletter dealing with trends in the move to digital communications - in particular P25 and the IDAS Very Narrow Band 6.25 kHz digital system.

There is an article on railroad use of 6.25 kHz technology that we know will be of interest to many of our users as well as an article on rental radios.  You can learn more about our rental plan by visiting  Many of our governmental users can use the rental program to migrate to new digital systems as grant money becomes available.  If you would like to hear some of our ideas on this subject, just give us a call at 800.489.2611.  In the meantime, you can view the ICOM GSA Newsletter at

Wishing you and yours all the best for 2009 and looking forward to working with you in the coming year!
