Icom IC-9700 VHF/UHF/1.2GHz Transceiver

Icom IC-9700 is built with the VHF/UHF weak signal operator in mind, the IC-9700 boasts RF direct sampling receivers for 2m and 70cm, along with a single down conversion for 23cm. It features Icom's DSP technology for a quiet receiver and a robust PA delivering 100W on 2m, 75W on 70cm, and 10W on 23cm. Band Management includes specific memory channels and tailored settings for each band, both in transmission and reception. Users can adjust RF power, TX power limit, limit power, and TX delay by band during transmit. Receiver settings, such as Noise Blanker and Noise Reduction, are customizable by band, offering a dynamic and tailored experience for each operating band and mode.

144, 430/440, and 1200 MHz All Mode Transceiver Including Satellite, DV, and DD Modes

The IC-9700 is an all mode Tri-band transceiver, covering 2m, 70cm, and 23 cm. In addition to the traditional SSB, AM, FM, CW, and RTTY modes, the transceiver also incorporates D-STAR (Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio) DV and DD modes. A full featured Satellite mode is built-in! There are three antenna connectors, one each for 144, 430/440, and 1200 MHz.

The Icom Digital Expertise

RF Direct Sampling, for 144 MHz and 430/440 MHz, is utilized in the IC-9700. For 1200 MHz, the Down Conversion IF Sampling method is adopted. In this system, signals are digitized by the ADC and processed in the FPGA. The signals are processed in the digital domain, thus eliminating distortion and other nonlinear elements seen in the legacy superheterodyne receivers. The outcome is that the signal purity is very high, and clear audio can be generated.

Intuitive Touch Screen Display

The beautifully designed MENU screens enable you to navigate settings and functions with a simple touch. The expanded menu provides quick access to the Satellite and D-STAR functions. Additionally, a touch on-screen keyboard is available for entering alphanumeric memory channel names.

Real-Time Spectrum Scope and Waterfall Display

This is the first time for an Icom VHF/UHF transceiver to have a real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display comparable to an HF high tier transceiver. with the high-speed spectrum scope, you can instantly see the operating band condition. With a simple touch of the scope, you can tune the radio to the desired signals frequency. You can also view the receive signal history using the waterfall display.

Independent Receiver, Full Duplex Operation

The IC-9700 can simultaneously receive on two different bands, and two different modes. For example, you can receive on the 1200 MHz band in the SSB mode while receiving on the 144 MHz band in the FM mode. This function can be a significant advantage when participating in contests or searching for weak signals. Furthermore, the IC-9700 is Full Duplex, which enables you to transmit on the main band while receiving on the sub band.

Audio Scope Function

Making good use of the Audio Scope function, various audio characteristics, such as microphone compressor level, filter width, notch filter width, and keying waveform in the CW mode can be monitored. Transmit or receive audio can either be displayed on the FFT scope and the oscilloscope.

Newly Designed Power Amplifier

The power amplifier outputs stable power with high efficiency (144/430 MHz band: 100/75 watts). The cooling system prevents the PA from overheating, even when operating for a long time. That ensures reliable operation during contests. This amplifier is more energy efficient than previous models.

Almost Identical User Interface to the IC-7300

The layout of the dials and keys, and the menu screens are almost the same as the IC-7300. If you are familiar with the IC-7300, you can operate the IC-9700 without hesitation. The IC-9700 is the perfect side-by-side companion to the IC-7300, enabling operations from HF to the 1200 MHz.

D-STAR Operation Friendly Functions

The IC-9700 has the D-STAR Repeater (DR) function that has been well received by D-STAR enthusiasts. The DR function can be used on both the Main and Sub bands simultaneously to listen to two separate DV signals. Moreover, by using the DD mode, you can browse the Internet through a repeater station.

Built-in DV Gateway Functions

A static IP address can be set to the transceiver. If you set a global IP address to your router, you can use the Terminal mode or Access Point mode without
any software applications.

Comprehensive Menus for Satellite Operation

The IC-9700’s Satellite mode makes Satellite operation very easy. Even in the Satellite mode, you can use the high-quality spectrum scope.

  • Normal and Reverse Tracking Functions: In addition to the Reverse Tracking function there is also a Normal Tracking function. Both functions simultaneously increase or decrease both the downlink and uplink frequencies in the same steps.
  • AFC Function: Automatic Frequency Control follows the frequency change caused by the Doppler effect, thus maintaining a stable receive condition.

  • Up to 99 Satellite Memory Channels: The IC-9700 has 99 satellite memory channels that enable you to store both uplink and downlink frequencies and operating mode. By just selecting a satellite memory channel, all of your satellite settings are completed.

Other functions

  • Loud and clear audio
  • Compatible with the RS-BA1 Version 2 and CI-V commands
