The new portable HF/VHF/UHF IC-705 Mobile Transceiver has many great features such as SDR platform, internal battery, GPS, Bluetooth and D-STAR, all in a compact and lightweight body. The Icom IC-705 uses the same 4.3-inch colour touch screen display as the bestselling IC-7300 and IC-9700 featuring real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display.
HF/50/144/430 MHz Multimode Operation - From HF to 50/144/430 MHz, you can enjoy a variety of bands in D-STAR DV, SSB, CW, AM and FM modes. The IC-705 receives continuously from 30 kHz through the 144 MHz band. You can also enjoy FM broadcast and Airband reception.
RF Direct Sampling System - The IC-705 uses the RF direct sampling method* matured in the IC-7300, IC-7610, and IC-9700. This method greatly reduces distortion. The high speed /high resolution real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display are incorporated in a compact design for the first time in this class. (* Down-conversion IF sampling method for 25 MHz and above)
Real-Time Spectrum Scope and Waterfall Display - The IC-705 inherits the performance and functions of the highly acclaimed IC-7300 and IC-9700 scopes. You can visually figure out the band condition and check clear frequencies. It takes you to the next level beyond traditional field operation.
Large Touch Screen Colour Display - The large 4.3-inch colour TFT touch LCD is the same size as the IC-7300 and IC-9700. It offers intuitive operation of the IC-705’s functions, settings, and various operational visual aids, such as the band scope, waterfall, and audio scope functions.
Compact and Lightweight Design - “Base station radio” performance and functions are packaged in a compact size of approximately 20 cm, 7.9 in (W) × 8.35 cm, 3.3 in (H) × 8.2 cm, 3.2 in (D). The weight is approximately 1.1 kg (including BP-272). Its compact and lightweight design enables you to hold it with one hand.
BP-272 Li-ion Battery Pack or 13.8 V DC External Power Supply - The IC-705 utilises the high-capacity Li-Ion battery from the ID-51A and ID-31A handheld radios. A 13.8 V DC external power supply can be used for operation and charging of the BP-272.
Maximum Output Power 5 W (BP-272), 10 W (13.8 V DC) - In portable mode, the IC-705 has a maximum output power of 5 W from the BP-272 which can last approx. 3 hours*. This is perfect for true 5 W QRP as well as the 0.5 W QRPp operations. Once you setup with a 13.8 V DC power source, you have up to 10 W. (* TX : RX : standby = 1 : 1 : 8 - The Power Save function ON, in the FM mode)
Supports Connections Using WLAN/Bluetooth® Technologies - Utilises WLAN/Bluetooth® technologies for linking and remote control*. The VS-3 headset (optional) enables more comfortable operation via Bluetooth® (* Those features will be available with future firmware upgrades.)
GPS Functions - An internal GPS receiver and antenna enhance your operations by providing location logging*, RX/TX locations via D-PRS®, “Near Me” repeater search/scan, QSO recording with metadata*, and internal clock synchronization. (*Micro SD required)
microSD Card Slot - The microSD card slot enables the storage of user-profiles, QSO recording, TX voice memory keyer, RTTY logging, GPS data, screen capture, firmware upgrades, and programming. (* microSD card is not supplied.)
Micro USB Connector - In addition to audio and rig control, the micro USB port allows charging capability, making digital modes easy with minimal cables.
D-STAR Functions - Enjoy the latest G3 Gateway and DV mode features with the IC-705. Have direct access to the D-STAR network with Terminal/Access point modes. Additionally, the IC-705 has the Photo Share feature introduced with the IC-9700. Share photos, without the need of a computer with other users with an IC-705 and IC-9700.
Programmable Speaker/Microphone - Enjoy portable operations with the supplied HM-243, programmable speaker/microphone. Perfect for operation with the IC-705 safely secured in the optional LC-192 backpack. User assignable buttons put functions like frequency and volume adjustments at the tip of your fingers, without removing your backpack.
Optional LC-192 Backpack, Ideal for Field Operations - Designed to be the "Ultimate", must have accessory for the IC-705, the LC-192 is the perfect utility backpack. Features like a safety strap, with a 1/4”-20 mounting lug to keep the IC-705 from accidentally falling out of the custom radio compartment to the user-adjustable internal panels for custom compartments for antennas, battery packs, or other items necessary for an afternoon SOTA activation.
