 A ham buddy of mine who was the Icom sales and service rep for many years in South Africa told me this.  Communications agencies in many South African countries are understaffed and lax in rules enforcement, and when Icom  sold HF radios to anybody that wanted them, they really didn't understand what they were getting many times.  So, companies and individuals who purchased Icom gear, and knew nothing about it other than it was a comm set, all ended up on 3.5, 7, 10.1, 14.0...etc, all the low end of the ham bands or whatever preset was installed for other modes.  It  took them a while if ever to figure out they could change freqs.
