Serial Numbers – Decoding (In this example I use a FT-857 to show what can be seen based on the serial number) Serial number in this example: 3D031052 Serial number format is YMLLUUUU where Y is the last digit of the year ( (3) Year: 2003), M is the month with C = Jan, D = Feb and so on, ( (D) Month: February) LL is the lot number (CPU is programmed by lot number & service bulletins ( (03) Lot: 03) are also referenced by lot number, not date). UUUU is the unit number within the lot. ( (1025 )Number in Lot: 1025).
Your Icom IC-706MKIIG must be a recent one my IC-706MKIIG is serial 4900 ballpark and I bought it in April of 2000. Judging by the IC-735 production figures mine was in the 29000 region and I bought it in 1991 the 7th year of its production run I think final production figures were close to 40,000 for that rig.

I think Icom just use the sequential method of serial no#s starting with the first one in production to the last one for the model # I hope that helps 73 Gerry Logged.
