IC-E90 Tri-band FM transceiver

IC-E90 Tri-band FM transceiver

Icom announces the debut of the IC-E90 multi-band handheld transceiver. This new transceiver covers 50MHz, 144MHz and 430MHz bands and is equipped with a wide band receiver, which covers 0.495-999.990MHz in AM/FM/WFM modes. If that isn't enough, the IC-E90 comes as standard with a 1300mAH Li-Ion battery ideal for long operating periods and provides 5W output on all bands! All these great features are built into an ultra compact body, measuring only 58x87x29mm!

The IC-E90 is extremely compact and lightweight. Its aluminium die-cast case and chassis is designed for the most rugged environments with splash resistance to JIS 4 specifications; ideal for outdoor activities.

With 500 alphanumeric memory channels, plus 50 band edges and 5 call channels, Icom’s New DMS (Dynamic Memory Scan) technology gives you flexible scanning lists. Memory channels can be organised in up to a maximum of 18 banks or 100 channels per bank. You can pick and choose the desired channels for scanning from the 500 memories.

50 CTCSS and 104 DTCS tone squelch operation codes (encode and decode) provide quiet standby and easy repeater access. A pocket beep alerts the user of a call and a tone scan can detect the sub-audible tone in use in the receiving signals, a great feature for quiet, group operations.

Simple operation is another valuable feature of the IC-E90. The backlit ten-key pad can be used to enter frequency, memory number as well as set many other features. The tuning knob can be customised for channel selection, or volume control. The IC-E90 supports 14 types of scan for maximum receiver utilisation and ease of use. Full VFO scan  Full VFO skip scan Program scan  Program skip scan Band scan  Band skip scan Full memory scan  Full memory skip scan Memory bank scan (DMS)  Memory bank skip scan Priority scan  TV channel search CTCSS decode scan  DTCS decode scan

The IC-E90 is supplied with a charger, Li-ion rechargeable battery, belt clip, user handbook and a two-year warranty. A comprehensive list of accessories is also available. It is available from September 2002 with a suggested retail price of £339.99 inc.VAT.

Ian Lockyer, Marketing Executive at Icom (UK) Ltd said, 'The IC-E90 has so much going for it, Triband capability, wide band receive, 5W output power on all bands and much, much more in one easy to use radio. I am sure that it is going to get a loyal following among the Radio Amateur community.
