In 1995, almost two decades ago, Icom changed the way radio hams thought about mobile HF communication with the introduction of the IC-706. Since that time, the Icom Mobile HF radios have been the Performance HF mobile radio of choice. Now, at the 2012 Tokyo Hamfair, Icom has once again changed mobile HF communications with the introduction of the IC-7100.
70MHz Band in European Versions
A first for an Icom transceiver, the IC-7100 is designed to the 70MHz band in European versions where now, 70MHz is open to Amateur radio enthusiasts.
Touch Screen Control Portal
An amateur radio first! The radio control head features a large, multi-function, “touch screen”‘ DOT-Matrix LCD display that is positioned for easy view and operation. This is an important feature as the controller display not only provides information, but is your control portal to the IC-7100’s feature settings and menus.
Breaking the the concept that a radio panel should be flat, the IC-7100’s control head is designed for an optimal view angle for the LCD as well as the spacing for large fingers, and plenty of room to have a large internal speaker along with a CW keyjack, phone/speaker, microphone, and control cable.
The IC-7100 provides D-STAR DV mode digital voice and low speed data communication.
IF DSP Features
The latest 32-bit floating point DSP supports many digital processing features such as digital IF filter, twin PBT, manual notch filters. Of course, those highgrade digital processing features work on all ham bands, from HF to the 70cm band.
