Desktop VHF/UHF Transceiver

The Icom IC-970H provides the highest possible performance on 144 and 430 MHz with optional 1200 MHz operation (with UX-97). VHF Power output is 5-35W SSB/CW, 6-45W FM. UHF power output is 5-30W SSB/CW, 6-40W FM. UHF output is 5-30W SSB/CW, 6-40W FM. Receive is 144-150 and 430-450 MHz (1240-1300 MHz with optional UX-97). The 970H has a large 2.4 x 4.5 inch backlit LCD display. Refinements include: built-in speech processor, notch filter, CW semi-breaking, keypad entry, RIT, satellite functions and speaker separate switch.

The ICOM IC-970A is a lower power version providing VHF/UHF output at 3.5-25W SSB/CW/FM. If the optional UX-97 is added to either version, then output at 1200 MHz is 1-10W.
