Icom Inc. (Osaka, Japan) is one of the largest providers of radio equipment, not only for amateur radio. Founded in 1954, the company has developed into a globally represented company with over 1000 employees. The company is proud to carry out 100% of its production in Japan and not to outsource it to low-wage countries. Radio systems for the civil navy are manufactured in country, as well as commercial radio systems, navigation devices and powerful receivers for professional and semi-professional users. With top transceivers such as the IC-7800 or technological innovations such as the IC-7300 SDR transceiver, Icom has repeatedly redefined the limits of amateur radio.
