Yes it includes an AT 141.

Anyway I buy my radios in the US. Even paying the VAT on import its still worth it. ICOM has always has crazy European price lists. They should learn as Id say there must be a huge " grey" import market

Yeah we Finns sure are crazy

Especially when we paid 3990 euros for the IC801E (with the ATU).

Actually I would have never thought that it could be more expensive anywhere else, but if I can do any calculations right it's even more expensive in Denmark...
