Icom Inc. Releases IC-9700, Supreme VHF/UHF Base Station Amateur Transceiver, including the 1200 MHz Band

IC-9700

Category 144, 430, 1200 MHz <SSB/CW/RTTY/AM/FM/DV/DD>
50 W TRANSCEIVER (Japan version)
Product Name IC-9700

Icom Inc. (Headquarters: Hirano, Osaka, Japan/President: Masataka Harima) will begin selling the IC-9700, 144, 430, 1200 MHz all mode transceiver in January 2019 in Japan. Delivery times may vary, depending on the country or region.

The IC-9700 is the first VHF/UHF transceiver introducing the RF direct sampling system for the 144 and 430 MHz bands, a real-time spectrum scope and waterfall function. The RF direct sampling system has achieved a high evaluation in Icom's IC-7610 and IC-7300 HF transceivers, and the spectrum scope and water fall function have been indispensable tools to increase QSO opportunities, without missing weak signals. The radio has various features, such as a built-in 1200 MHz band, 4.3 inch TFT color touch screen display, full duplex with Dualwatch on separate bands, Satellite mode, D-STAR DV (Digital Voice) /DD (Digital Data) modes and Terminal/Access point modes. In addition, a newly designed power amplifier and cooling system provides stable and high-efficiency operation, even when continuously transmitting for a long time.

The IC-9700 is the perfect side-by-side companion to the IC-7300 HF radio. They are the same size and have almost identical ergonomics. Using the IC-9700 and IC-7300 creates an ideal, compact radio station covering the HF, 144, 430 and 1200 MHz bands. The IC-9700 is the one and only VHF/UHF all mode transceiver that enables a variety of VHF/UHF operation, like DX, contests, satellite/EME and D-STAR.
