IC-705 QRP SDR Transceiver
A Much-Anticipated Ultra-Portable
Icom have announced details about the launch of the IC-705 QRP SDR ultra-portable transceiver. Available to the Japanese amateur radio community from the middle of June 2020, deliveries are planned to the rest of the world shortly afterwards. Our friends at Icom UK are very excited about getting our first 705's very soon.
This new "go anywhere" HF/VHF/UHF is the radio that everyone has been talking about since its announcement at the 2019 JA fair in Tokyo. After being seen at the Show in Japan, the global amateur radio community has been anticipating its arrival with much demand.
Including its SDR platform, internal battery, GPS, Bluetooth and D-STAR, in a compact and lightweight body, the Icom IC-705 uses the same 4.3″ colour touch screen display as the IC-7300 and IC-9700 and features a real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display.
Icom expect the UK version of the IC-705 to arrive soon after the Japan launch and anticipate a price of around £1299.99 including VAT (subject to confirmation).
