Introducing the LC-192 Backpack for the IC-705 QRP SDR transceiver

The Icom LC-192 is a new dedicated backpack specifically designed for the Icom IC-705. The multi-function backpack has many features including space for an external antenna and cables as well as sufficient area to store your IC-705 and all your accessories. The LC-192 is the ideal accessory to compliment your IC-705.

Everything has been thought of with the design of the LC-192. On the top of the backpack is a separate compartment for the radio to sit securely in. Below that is a larger compartment to allow you to store accessories including, power supply, batteries, cables, etc. An adjustable divider keeps everything well in order and secure.

The backpack is well padded with protective cushioning to protect the IC-705 and accessories from knocks. The back of the LC-192 is equipped with breathable padding (as well as the carrying straps) so that the LC-192 can be carried comfortably on longer and outings.

A light plastic mounting plate is attached to the side, which allows the use of small portable antennas. There are also holes in the backpack to run cables. Alternatively, with the optional VS-3 Bluetooth headset you can use your IC-705 wirelessly.
