MORE DUE IN DEC/JAN 2015
The IC-7100 is a HF+6m+VHF+UHF all mode compact radio with an innovative slanted touch-screen LCD controller.
A first for an Icom transceiver, the IC-7100 is designed to operate on the 70 MHz band in European versions where 70 MHz is open to Amateur radio enthusiasts. To maintain its commitment to D-STAR, all versions of the IC-7100 will come with standard D-STAR DV mode.
Since the launch of the original IC-706 in 1995, Icom has been leading the market of HF/VHF/UHF multi-band mobile radios. The popularity of vehicular mounted amateur radios may not be as high as the times of the IC-706 series, but the IC-7100 has been carefully designed to reignite amateur operators interest in mobile communications and brings digital communication opportunity to a wider range of radio Amateurs.
