I have an ICOM. Really like the auto-tuner function, and ability to
get all HAM frequencies. Suggest you send the few extra dollars to get
this functionality.

Stick with ICOM, SGC, Yaesu, or Kenwood. Check at sailmail.com for
radios that work well with the Airmail email program.

The best SSB for Airmail is almost certainly the Icom M802. It is
also the best for use on any of the ham frequencies since it comes
close to emulating full VFO operation after it has been unlocked.

About Icom M802. What do you mean by "unlocked"


The M802 as it is shipped from the factory is strictly a channelized
marine radio. There is a keyboard sequence however that creates a
second mode of operation. In the second mode, frequencies can be set
(and changed) directly via the front panel knobs. One knob adjusts
the tuning increment which can be as small as .1 khz or as large as 1
mhz, the second knob steps the frequency up and down by the selected
increment. By adjusting the step size to 1 khz you can tune through
one of the ham bands very much like you would with a receiver dial.

The unlock sequence is described in the installation manual or can be
found he

My Icom 710 came with the ham bands enabled except for 60 meters. Does
anyone know if it can be modified to enable 60 meters?

Are you saying it will receive 60 meters but will not transmit there?
You've attempted to transmit?
