Desktop HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver

The Icom IC-9100 is a versatile and expandable transceiver. It offers professional performance, out of the box on HF, 6 meters and 2 meters with 100 watts. The 440 MHz band is also built-in with 75 watts. The UX-9100 band unit can also be added at any time to 1200 MHz, 10 watt operation. The IC-9100 can simultaneously receive on two different bands and works as if there are two independent receivers in one radio. Each main and sub-receiver has a dedicated DSP unit providing flexible digital IF filters, AGC time constant, twin PBT, manual and auto notch filter, noise reduction, noise blanker, etc. The USB port can transfer modulator, received audio, RTTY demodulator and DV mode data. Satellite operation is not an after-thought on this transceiver. The satellite mode synchronizes the uplink (transmitting) and downlink (receiving) frequencies and shifts the frequency with the same tuning step. Twenty alphanumeric satellite memory channels store frequency, mode and tone settings. A built in RTTY demodulator and decoder allows you to read a RTTY message instantly without an external PC or external decoder. A built in automatic tuner covers the HF bands plus 6 meters. Other refinements include electronic keyer jack on the front panel, four CW memories, voice squelch control, band edge beep, built in voice synthesizer. The multi-function meter shows signal strength, output power, SWR, ALC and compression level. There are main and sub-receiver speaker outputs.

The ICOM IC-9100 made its debut at the Tokyo HamFair 2009 on August 22. Actual sales started in spring of 2011.

Original price in 2011: USD 3600,-
