Icom UK at the RSGB Amateur Radio Convention 2012

Icom UK at the RSGB Amateur Radio Convention 2012

Icom UK Ltd will again be attending the RSGB HF Convention and showcasing its very latest range of Amateur radio and D-STAR equipment.

The IC-7100, an exciting, innovative multiband transceiver was unveiled recently at the Tokyo Ham Fair. Icom UK are hoping to have the first one in Europe at this show!! The IC-7100 offers many exciting features including touch screen control and a first for an Icom rig…the addition of the 70 MHz band. To maintain its commitment to D-STAR, all versions of the IC-7100 will come with standard D-STAR DV mode.

Following the D-STAR theme, Icom UK plan to show a prototype of a new D-STAR handheld radio. The ID-51A/E D-STAR handheld radio is a dualband, an evolution of Icom’s popular ID-31A/E UHF D-STAR Handheld. It will be capable of both VV / UU 144MHz + 430MHz dual band operation. The ID-51A/E will also include the much praised menu-driven user interface of the ID-31A/E series with a much bigger LCD screen. The ID-51A/E will also feature integrated GPS & D-STAR as well as IPx7 waterproofing, SD-Card slot and slim body as found on the ID-31A/E.

Icom UK will also be demonstrating its latest RC-28 IP remote control system. The RC-28 allows a user to control selected Icom HF Amateur radio transceivers through an IP Network. This new system includes remote control software together with remote control USB encoder which provides users with a radio operator’s style interface for controlling this new software product.

The RSGB convention takes place at Horwood House near Milton Keynes for three days between 12-14 October 2012 and will include many lectures on subjects such as HF, DX and contesting.

A full range of UK exams will be available over the weekend as well as the chance to get tickets to the world famous RSGB raffle.

Our team looks forward to meeting you there!
