The New, Easy to Use IC-718
Whether you're new to HF or just looking for a capable second rig, the IC-718 is for you. It's simple. Buttons for the functions you use the most are prominent and easy to access. Selecting s frequency is as easy as punching in the numbers on the large, well spaced keypad. And you can quickly tune up or down a band with the auto tuning step feature. It even has a band stacking register to "remember" your last used frequency. It's superior. The IC-718 features a continually adjustable noise blanker - a feature some high-end rig's don't even have. The IF shift helps reject nearby interference. And with the UT-106 installed, you can enhance the superior receive performance with Digital Signal Processing (DSP). The Auto Notch Filter minimizes noise without compromising receive audio. A full 100 watts (40 W AM) of adjustable power keeps you on the air for extended periods. Talk hands-free with the VOX feature. And a built-in keyer for CW enthusiasts. All this and more in a compact, easy to carry little package. Simple. Superior. Piece of cake.
