Meet the Icom IC-705! Presentation and Hands on Review

31 August, 2020 - Reading time: 3 minutes

The Icom IC705 is the latest offering from ICOM and continues their range of SDR based transceivers which include the IC-7300 and IC-9700.

The Icom IC-705 is a light portable rig that covers from DC to 70cm and is either internal or external battery powered. It has the same touch screen interface as the Icom 7300 & 9700.

The units have only just landed in Australia and are already proving to be very popular with Strictly Ham shipping many units this week.


Justin VK7TW will be demonstrating his unit including the Icom LC-192 backpack & bluetooth headset. Come and see if the IC-705 really is a massive leap ahead on the FT817/818!
