|Future VHF/UHF Amateur Base Transceivers|
The Icom IC-9700 saw its debut at the Tokyo Hamfair August 2017. It follows the form-factor of the hugely succesful HF/6 meter IC-7300. The IC-9700 covers 2 meters, 440 and (optional) 1.2 GHz bands. It will have many of the features of the IC-7300 including direct-sampling SDR architecture, color TFT touch screen and real-time spectrum display with waterfall. Additionally the radio is expected to support D-Star, full-duplex, an external display and have main and sub-receive.
Power output is expected to be: 50 (or 100?) watts on 2m/70cm and 10 watts at 1.2 GHz.
