Icom IC-T81A

Icom IC-T81This Transceiver is the first 4 band hand held transceiver, covering the 50 MHz, 144 MHz, 430 MHz and 1.2 GHz Amateur Bands.

This is one of my Multiband FM Transceivers, the Icom IC-T81A.

I enjoy this radio and use the CS-T81 Cloning Software and the OPC-478 Cloning Cable to program the radio. This makes it much easier to add, change or delete channels.

This is one radio you should consider getting.

Icom IC-703 HF/6M QRP Rig

IC-703 is Icom's product for the QRP enthusiasts. Focusing on QRP performance rather than an all-in-one solution, the IC-703 covers the Amateur Bands 160m to 6m*. Depending on the power supply the rig is capable of 5W @ 9.6VDC and 10W @ 13.8VDC, plus it has an internal antenna tuner. Icom engineers have addressed a lot of the concerns about current consumption and other comments gathered over the past two years regarding QRP performance. While it looks and feels like the IC-706MKIIG, this rig is a QRP version, not a replacement.

*6m is not available depending on version
