IC-705 QRP SDR Transceiver Update, Available in Japan around April 2020

There has been massive interest around the world about the new IC-705 QRP SDR transceiver since a concept model was shown at the Tokyo Hamfair 2019.

This new portable HF/VHF/UHF has many great features. Some of these are, an 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″ colour touch screen display as in the IC-7300 and IC-9700 featuring real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display.
