Icom IC-705 HF/VHF/UHF All Mode Transceiver
Icom IC-705 HF/50/144/430 MHz ALL MODE Transceiver - Your new partner for Field Operations
HF/50/144/430 MHz All Mode
From HF to 50/144/430 MHz, you can enjoy a variety of bands in D-STAR DV, SSB, CW, AM and FM modes. The IC-705 receives continuously from the medium wave broadcast band to 144 MHz band. You can also enjoy FM broadcast and air band reception.
RF Direct Sampling System
The IC-705 uses the RF direct sampling method* matured in the IC-7300, IC-7610 and IC-9700. This method greatly reduces distortion. The high speed / high resolution real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display are incorporated in a compact design for the first time in this class.
*Down-conversion IF sampling method for 25 MHz and above
Real-Time Spectrum Scope and Waterfall Display
The IC-705 inherits the performance and functions of the highly-acclaimed IC-7300 and IC-9700 scopes. You can visually figure out the band condition and check clear frequencies. It takes you to the next level beyond traditional field operation.
Large Touch Screen Color Display
The large 4.3 inch touch screen color display is the same size as the one used in the IC-7300 and IC-9700. It dramatically improves the visibility and operability in the fields.
Compact and Lightweight Design
"Base station radio" performance and functions are packaged in a compact size of approximately 7.9" (W) x 3.1" (H) x 3.3" (D). The weight is approximately 2.2LBS (excluding battery pack and antenna). Its compact and lightweight design enables you to hold it with one hand.
BP-272 Battery Pack or 13.8V DC External Power Supply
The BP-272 Li-ion battery pack comes with the IC-705. This is the same battery pack used in the ID-51 and ID-31 handheld transceivers. Of course, a 13.8V DC external power supply can be used, too.
Maximum Output Power 10W (13.8V DC) or 5W (BP-272) & Supports QRP/QRPp Operations
Despite being a portable radio, it achieves the maximum output power of 10W with a 13.8V DC external power supply. When the standard BP-272 Li-ion battery pack is used, operation at the maximum output power of 5W is possible. True 5W QRP as well as 0.5W QRPp are supported.
Bluetooth® and Wireless LAN
Bluetooth® and wireless LAN are built-in. They can be used for smartphone linking and remote control and also for Bluetooth® headsets.
GPS Antenna and GPS Logger
A high-performance GPS antenna is incorporated. In the D-STAR DV mode, you can send and receive location information while communicating. This high-performance GPS enables various functions such as GPS log function and repeater search function.
microSD Card Slot
The IC-705 is equipped with a microSD card slot that can be used for firmware upgrades, programming and so on, as well as voice recording and saving GPS log data. (microSD card sold separately)
Full Equippeq D-STAR Functions
The IC-705 is fully equipped with functions to enjoy D-STAR comfortably, such as the DR function and Terminal Mode/Access Point Mode. In addition, you can send/receive and view saved photos using only the IC-705 without any application software.
Speaker Mic Comes Standard
Speaker-microphone come standard. The speaker-microphone is equipped with programmable buttons assignable to various functions, such as frequency adjustment and volume control.
Optional Backpack, LC-192, Ideal for Field Operations
The IC-705 fits perfectly in the optional dedicated LC-192 multi-function backpack. It has various functions, such as holes for the antenna and holes for passing through coaxial cable and microphone cable. You can easily operate the IC-705 with it in the backpack.
NOTE: HEIL Sound HTH-I: Works with iCOM 705 with the inline push-to-talk, but not the VOX. Check out this video to see how.
