Icom pulls M802 SSB from market

I just spoke with a rep from Icom America and was told the company could not come to terms with the FCC regarding DSC issues and was no longer offering the iconic M802 SSB radio for the US market. I have no idea what the options are for a replacement SSB. Any ideas?

Interesting, I wonder if the FCCs issue is with real errors in the DSC or just the overall clumsyness of the implementation. There website says
. Temporary Export Only. New US versions coming soon.
