Is there any Icom/Yaesu dealers in Hong Kong?
What is the price level for ham stuff over there?
Any suggestions ? A friend of mine going for a job trip to HK...

I think you mean Akihabara, in Tokyo. Yes...best in the world for latest
and greatest gear. Often on VHF/UHF gear, the band plans are different
careful what you buy to ensure it will work on same freq's as your home
Some of the best back in the early 90's were T-Zone and X-One.
As for Hong Kong, I have found a good shop just across the street from
Holiday Inn, Golden Mile just up the street from the Star Ferry Peer in
Good prices. I think it's owned by a Thai man. Just remember when
buying in HKG: Caveat emptor -- standard accessories sometimes become
"optional" - always do your homework, as a deal too good to be true
could come without a rechargeable battery and charger, without
microphone etc. Also, check voltages. JA gear runs 100VAC, HK runs
Been there, done that....more than once.
ex 7J1AOF (Japan) BV/N0IAT (Taiwan) etc.....
