The commercial grade Icom IC-T90A transmits on 6 meters, 2 meters and 440 MHz. The T90A is also a wide band AM, FM and Wide FM scanning receiver. Not only can you hear your favorite TV programs (until 02/14/09) with the preprogrammed TV channels, but you can also listen to short-wave, AM and FM broadcast radio stations, police, fire, military, aircraft, various amateur bands and more. Receive coverage is 495 kHz to 999.990 MHz (less cellular). With 500 alphanumeric memory channels, plus 50 band edges and 5 call channels, the IC-T90A is a dream radio! But, with Icom's new DMS (Dynamic Memory Scan) technology, the IC-T90A makes the dream a reality. With the maximum of 18 banks or 99 channels per bank, you can pick and choose any desired channel for scanning from 500 available memories. This compact radio is comfortable in the smallest of hands, and offers full radio control for large fingers. The rugged die-cast aluminum chassis is designed for the most demanding environments with JIS-4 specification for weather resistance.

A standard feature of the IC-T90A is both DTCS and CTCSS encode and decode capability. Don't know what tone is used? Don't worry; the tone scan feature will identify the appropriate tone frequency. Choose from either 104 DTCS or 50 CTCSS codes for receive and transmit, individually. The new Weather Alert Scan capability checks active weather stations for NWS alert activity even while you monitor local repeater communications.

Simple, one-handed operation is the most valuable feature of the IC-T90A. The backlit ten-key pad allows you to enter frequency, memory number and various other features. While the tuning knob can be customized for either channel selection or volume control. There is no cumbersome function key on the T-90A!

The T90A operates from 6 to 16 VDC and is only 2.3 x 3.5 x 1.25 inches 8.5 oz (58x87x29mm 240g). The Icom T90A comes with a BP-217 Li-Ion battery, BC-110AR (or BC-167NA) wall charger, wrist strap, MB-83 Swivel belt clip and SMA flexible antenna (with 6m adapter). An informative owners manual is included along with a separate Ham Radio Terms manual.
See the January 2003 issue of QST for a great review on this easy-to-use HT!
