News from ICOM for the New Year
Icom has announced details of its forthcoming portable automatic antenna tuner for the ICOM IC-705 Transceiver. The AH-705 is a palm-sized portable antenna tuner that has been designed to work between the 1.8-50MHz bands. It can be powered either by alkaline batteries or DC 13.8V supply. These are some of the key features of the ATU:
- This ATU covers the 1.8 MHz to 50 MHz bands, using a long wire element; 2-way power sources using alkaline batteries or 13.8V DC (13.8V DC should be taken directly from an external power supply, not through the IC-705.)
- Latching relays used for saving power consumption
- IP54 dust-protection and water-resistant construction for outdoor use
- Compact design that neatly fits in the optional LC-192 multi-function backpack.
