It sells for about $600.  The noise figure is 1.5db (which seems very high 
to me compared to the 1.0db for the AIDC 3731 and .6db for the Khune.

You can find the manual on the Icom support page.  It does not readout 
2400mhz on the radio as it converts 2.4G to a 2M IF frequency.  So you are 
still tuning on 144.XXX +
