One touch FT8 mode preset, Scroll mode, WLAN (Access Point) function and other updates are available. 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 2 m, 70 cm, and 23 cm. A full featured Satellite mode is built-in! There are three antenna connectors, one each for 144, 430/440, and 1200 MHz.
The Icom's 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. 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. Scroll mode automatically keeps the operating signal within the scope range.
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. Preset memory offers smooth FT8 mode operation. You can start FT8 mode operation only by selecting [FT8] from PRESET menu. Up to five preset memories can be stored.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.
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.
This is a comparison between two transceivers' rear chassis temperatures when continuously transmitting for 15 minutes. The IC-910 rises to 65°C while the IC-9700 rises only to 45°C. Japanese version example when testing at 50 W. 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.
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. 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.
¦ Connection example (AP mode). These functions can be used only when using through D-STAR G3 repeater. See the instruction manual that comes with the transceiver when operating. 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. 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. 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. The UDP Hole Punch function enables Access Point mode or Terminal mode communication (limited function), even if you cannot forward port 40000, or a Global IP address is not assigned to your device.
This function is convenient when you are using a free Wi-Fi hotspot. When using the IC-9700 Internal Gateway function, IC-9700 version 1.10 or later is required.When using an application software, RS-MS3W/RS-MS3A version 1.30 or later is required. You can communicate with individual stations, or stations that are listening to a repeater, whichever you set in ÂTO. Â Once your transmit signal passes through a punched port, a reply (receive) signal can pass back through the port. You cannot hear calls from stations that initiate a call to you. See the RS-MS3W or RS-MS3A instruction manuals for precautions and setting details. Send, receive and show pictures, the IC-9700 does it all. Pictures stored on your smartphone or other device can be sent through the IC-9700. Using the ST-4001A/I/W picture utility software, you can select a picture to be sent, and then transfer it to the IC-9700 through a LAN.
The IC-9700 does the rest. Image data is transmitted during voice communication, or transmitted in the DV fast data mode, by pressing a button on the display, too. The IC-9700 can also show the received picture on its LED display. Download free on Google Play.Download free on App Store. Download free on the Icom website. For Android: Version 5.0 or later.
