Icom IC-705 HF VHF UHF All Mode Portable Transceiver
This new portable HF/VHF/UHF has many great features. Some of these are, an SDR platform, internal battery, GPS, Bluetooth and D-STAR, all in a compact and lightweight body. The Icom IC-705 uses the same 4.3″ colour touch screen display as in the IC-7300 and IC-9700 featuring real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display.
70MHz has been deleted at the last minute on the production IC-705 which for the many 4M fans I agree, is a great shame. Just as much for the sixty- plus countries that have access to the band. It's still a class leading piece of kit and I for one won't be cancelling mine. 4m or no 4m!
Icom UK have also confirmed to us only this evening, (June 2nd 2020) that there is yet further delay for shipping and we now expect deliviers to take place end July/August.
If you still wish to voice your opininion regarding deletion of 70MHz then you are welcome to Email: 4m-on-705@HamRadio.co.uk
