Icom IC-R6 Compact Wideband Receiver

Product Review (submitted on 19 August 2019):
I ordered this receiver for work use, as a wideband receiver is quite useful in interference-hunting. The R6 has a very good receiver, with very little in the way of "birdies" and a decent interface considering the small number of keys on the unit front panel. The receiver performance is absolutely in line with the quoted specifications (see the manual and/or unit sales leaflet) with good sensitivity across the board and very good selectivity too. The unit is small but ergonomically good.
The only downsides are that I would have liked it to be made from a more heavy-duty plastic, although I don't see any specific issue with the constrution quality as it is, and that it would be nice to have a "standard" stereo 3.5mm headphone socket to allow the straightforward use of off-the-shelf "ear bud" earphones.
All in all, a great little receiver, well-made and with good performance and battery life.
