Icom IC-718

This model is now discontinued  - see Yaesu FT-450D or Alinco DX-SR9

One of our favourite and best selling small HF transceivers, and although aimed as an entry-level product, the IC-718 continues all the traditions of high quality engineering that you would expect from Icom.

Conveniently sized and easy to operate, the IC-718 utilises all the latest RF and digital technology and is designed to be one of the most practical rigs ever!
The IC-718 offers an excellent overall specification coupled with ease of use. The first thing that strikes you about the IC-718 is its similarity to the IC-R75 and more importantly that the speaker is mounted on the front panel of the transceiver. With the speaker facing the operator audio can now be more clearly heard during operation.

The IC-718 features a clean 100-Watts transmitter for SSB and CW and a built in electronic keyer for CW and 40 watts output on AM. As you would expect, an all mode, general coverage receiver is built in and covers 30kHz -29.999 MHz.
All popular operating modes are offered; USB, LSB, CW, RTTY (FSK) and AM, in addition there is a level adjustable noise blanker, a variety of scanning functions as well as a hand microphone and electronic keyer as standard.
The IC-718 has a total of 101 memory channels, which stores operating frequency and mode. The IC-718 has a number of options available to enhance the model including UT-106 DSP unit to further improve receiver performance, CR-338 High Stability Crystal improve the frequency stability to within . 5ppm, UT-102 voice synthesiser, which gives the IC-718 a clear electronically generated voice etc.
