Since the beginning of this year, Icom have been releasing new firmware for our IC-705, IC-7300 and IC-9700 transceivers. The updates have been designed to improve user experience and incorporate communication modes such as FT8.

The firmware updates began with the IC-705 (Version 1.20 added 22/01/21), (Version 1.24 added 05/03/21) and were followed shortly by versions for the IC-7300 (Version 1.40 added 26/02/21) and IC-9700 (Version 1.30 added 26/02/21).

Firmware updates include

• One-touch FT8 mode preset
• Scroll mode automatically keeps the operating signal within the scope range
• Multi-function dial items have been improved (New for IC-7300 and IC-9700)
• Compatible with the AH-705 antenna tuner (for IC-705)
• WLAN (Access point) function is added (for IC-705)
• Other updates are planned for each model

Icom have also provided updates for the RS-BA1 Ver2 (Version 2.30 added 05/03/21), CS-705 (Version 1.10 added 22/01/21) and the CS-9700 programming software (Version 1.30 added 26/02/21).
