How is this radio WRT intermod? In the past radios like the 2820H and others basically were like a barn door on the front end....

I have never had an issue with Intermod on my ICOM 2820H? I ran it mobile for several years & had not one issue that I ever recall with noise. It is now my full time VHF/UHF Base radio since I replaced it with a TYT TH-9000 Quad Band Mobile but the 2820H has performed flawlessly everywhere I have used it on Analog & D-STAR. I Hate touch screen radios so I would have no issues buying another 2820H if I needed another Dual Band mobile with D-STAR. I can not say that about the IC-880H which I just gave to my neighbor.

I guess it depends on where you live. Basically my 2820H gets annihilated by the
stuff, depending on the frequency. Then again these days most of the dualbanders
do, which is sad. Outside of that if it wasn't for the tinny, constricted TX audio I could
forgive the thing. I think I'm going to find someone that does SMT and try to get the
audio mod done to it and save it....

I get constant comments about the transmit audio being a bit Loud. It to to low set on the other setting so I leave it Loud. I use it with the hand microphone though I have a dsk microphone with an adapter I could use with it but I don't really have space for a 3rd desk microphone.
