This is a new, very expensive, HF/VHF/SHF tranceiver that Icom is advertising and potentially going to release later this year. It can do HF+6m, 2m, 70cm and 23cm with an optional module. Additionally it will have a module for D-star that will allow you to do D-star on 10m,6m,2m,70cm and 23cm.

Wait, is D-star even allowed on 10m? The brochures say it's possible to use the DV mode on 28mhz but I was under the impression that the maximum bit speed you could run on 10m was 1200baud. D-star runs at 4800baud. The transceiver has not made it's way through the FCC according to unversal-radio. I wonder if anythings going to come of that.
