Icom IC-7100

Post by NT2C » Sat Jan 12, 2013 11:05 pm

It's not approved for sale yet but I'm really liking what I've seen of it so far:

The Icom IC-7100 is an affordable all-mode HF/VHF/UHF mobile transceiver with a very high Cool Factor. DSP at the IF level is the cornerstone of this impressive new multi-bander. RF power is HF 100 watts, 50 MHz 100 watts, 144 MHz 50 watts and 430 MHz 35 watts. Extended receive provides coverage from 30 kHz to 199.999 MHz and 400-470 MHz. Enjoy ± 0.5ppm frequency stability and 505 memory channels. And D-Star is built in! The remote head, with built-in speaker, offers full control of the radio. And the head rear panel features jacks for key, speaker and microphone. This radio requires 13.8 VDC at 22 amps. The rear panel has an antenna input for HF/6M and one for VHF/UHF bands.

Bumping an old thread here, but having read some chatter about how good the "7100" was I was very confused since I'd only heard of the Yaesu FT-7100 which didn't seem to fit the bill at all :?

It makes a bit more sense now :lol:

I realise it's new and shiny, with D-STAR and all, but has anyone played with one? For analogue comms how does it compare to eg. the FT-857D?

I'm waiting for this to be shipping for a few more months, but it looks quite appealing to me as well. I've seen a couple used ones already come up for sale on eham.net

Universal Radio is currently shipping them, as is Gigaparts. I believe Ham Nation did a video review of the unit not long ago as well.

Almost twice the price.
