Come and visit Icom UK at National Hamfest Exhibition

Icom UK will again be attending the biggest Amateur Radio Show in the UK. The National Hamfest will take place at the George Stephenson Pavilion, Newark & Notts Showground, Lincoln Road, Winthorpe, Newark NG24 2NY on Friday 28th September & Saturday 29th September 2012.

More than 3000 visitors came through the doors last year and this year’s show is planned to be bigger than ever. Icom UK will be showcasing its complete range of Amateur radio, D-Star and receiver equipment.

Icom plan to show a sample of a new, revolutionary, HF/VHF/UHF Amateur Radio Mobile Transceiver, IC-7100. This exciting new transceiver was first shown at the Tokyo Ham Fair only last month. A first for an Icom transceiver, the IC-7100 is designed to cover the 70MHz band in European versions. 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 UKplan to show a prototype of a new dual band D-STAR handheld radio. The ID-51A/E series D-STAR handheld radio is an evolution of Icom’s ID-31A/E UHF D-STAR Handheld and will be capable of both VV / UU 144MHz + 430MHz dual band operation displayed on a much bigger LCD screen. The ID-51A/E will also include the much praised menu-driven user interface of the ID-31A/E series. 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.

As well as having a full range of Amateur radio, D-Star and receiver equipment on the stand, Icom UK will 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.

Our Amateur team look forward to meeting you at the show!
