ICOM IC-9700 Transceiver 144/430/1200 MHz from base

The IC-9700 uses RF direct sampling technology for VHF and UHF operations. This technical solution reduces the hardware complexity, improving the signal to noise ratio.

Icom plans to launch this high-performance SDR transceiver on the market early next year. We consider to have it available for sale in Italy in February 2019 with a recommended retail price of € 1,995.00 including VAT and including 3-year Advantec Italia warranty.

We expect the demand for this product, dedicated especially for SSB, EME and Satellite traffic, to be important. We would like to point out that this indicative price and availability in Italy may be subject to change.

Main characteristics:
  • Tri-band base station 144MHz, 430MHz (direct sampling in RF) and 1.2GHz (conversion)
  • It supports all CW / AM / SSB / FM / RTTY and D-STAR Digital Voice and Digital Data modes
  • New PA with 100W RF power (2m), 75W (70cm) and 10W (23cm)
  • 4.3 ″ color TFT LCD touchscreen display
  • Automatic satellite DOPPLER effect management with normal / inverse tuning in SSB and 99 storable satellite channels
  • 0.5ppm frequency stability
  • Input for 10MHz external reference
  • Spectrum analyzer with real time scope function
  • Dual Watch and Full Duplex operation in Satellite mode (TX / RX on different bands)
  • Audio recording / playback function (SD memory card)
