Icom R71A

The Icom IC-R71A utilizes a DFM (direct feed mixer) to make the R71A virtually immune to interference from strong adjacent signals. This, coupled with a 100 dB dynamic range, means solid performance for the casual listener or serious DXer. The receiver system is a multi-mode, quadruple conversion superheterodyne covering 100 kHz to 30 MHz with a CPU controlled, 10 Hz step VFO with 100 Hz display resolution. Advanced features include:  Pass Band Tuning, IF notch, adjustable AGC, adjustable noise blanker and built-in preamplifier. The R71A also hosts a variety of user conveniences including two independent VFOs (tuners), dial lock, squelch, tone and direct keypad entry. A 32 channel scanning, tunable memory that stores frequency, VFO and mode is also built into the R71A. The rear panel has two, selectable antenna inputs:  SO-239 jack and Hi-Z wire input. The top panel features a built-in speaker, plus there is an external antenna jack on the rear panel The R71A boasts even more features than the earlier R70.
(Special note:  The Pass Band Tuning feature did not appear in all production units).
