Try ebay. There are quite a few Icom units listed.

Mike, I''d encourage you to contact Amateur Electronics Supply (AES) using one of their 800#''s. They are an Icom repair station and routinely take in used gear (which they bench test, service and restock as used) on new sales. They have 5 stores, as I recall, so verify that the place you call can tell you about inventory available at all stores. You may find a 700 Pro or 710 in that fashion.

You should also consider attending a large regional ham fest, in which case you may find a new radio closer to your means. E.g. a new 706-G sold last year at the Orlando Ham Fest for < $850. But I realize this isn''t helpful if you''re commited to finding a marine radio.

Finally, consider using the SSCA For Sale BB and post your interest in a used SSB; perhaps it''s enough to push someone over the edge who''s been considering a new radio.

I frequently see ICOM models 706 and 710 mentioned but we are considering buying a boat with an ICOM 707 with AH-2 tuner. Can someone please tell me the difference between the 707 and the other ICOMs? Thank you.
