ID-51E PLUS Practical Wireless Review - ‘I was so impressed; I bought the radio!’

ID-51E PLUS Practical Wireless Review - ‘I was so impressed; I bought the radio!’

Icom’s new ID-51E PLUS was recently given a seal of approval by Chris Lorek in a product review in the July edition of Practical Wireless. The ID-51E PLUS is Icom’s latest Amateur digital/analogue radio allowing access worldwide on the growing D-STAR network.

Chris, who is a long standing reviewer of Amateur radio equipment, gave the product a thorough test on the D-STAR network taking it on his travels to the North West and down to Cornwall. He went through some of the new features including DV 'Fast Data' mode, a DV and FM repeater search function and Dplus Reflector Link commands which give you an easy multi-repeater connection through the reflector.

His conclusion, ‘I've had several hundred reviews of amateur radio equipment published in the UK press, I was so impressed with the transceiver that I did something that was very rare for me following a review in that I purchased it for my own use. Can I give it any higher recommendation?’

If you want to find more about Chris’s decision, his review can be read in the July edition of Practical Wireless can be picked up at the newsagents nationwide.

The ID-51E PLUS can be purchased from all Authorised Icom UK Amateur Radio dealers.
