External monitor for your IC-7000

Lot’s of Icom IC-7000 owners wish to put an external LCD monitor on their radios but don’t know where to get one at a reasonable cost. I have seen many threads in discussion forums suggesting television sets with monitor inputs. They range anywhere from $50 and up where I have seen them.

I think I found a better solution at half the cost! Here is a 7″ LCD monitor designed for automotive deployments but would make a perfect ham shack addition. I bought one of these on eBay for $22 USD. I am not connected in any way with sellers of these (thus no link) but I highly recommend any IC-7000 owner go and get one of these beauties!
