Counting down till IC-9700

In a few weeks from now, the new Icom IC-9700 will arrive. The local HAMShop gave an estimate of beginning 2019. The Japanese manual is ready, but I’m still waiting for a translated English version. I had some questions about the new rig, but most of theme are answered.

  • It does have +12 Volt bias to feed external preamps via coax.
  • It is missing PTT out via an RCA connector.
  • It seems it does not wide-band receive.

Let’s wait for another few weeks till the transceiver, announced September 2017, will arrive to it’s first customers.
