The '706' series represents one of the most popular transceivers in amateur radio histroy. The latest version is the incredibly small Icom IC-706 Mark II G which adds many new features and capabilities not found in the previous ICOM IC-706 and ICOM IC-706MKII versions. The "G" is an all-mode transceiver provides 100 watts on HF and 6 meters and 50 watts on 2 meters plus 20 watts on 440 MHz. It receives from 30 kHz to 199 MHz and from 400 to 470 MHz. It features a removable, remoteable, front panel that allows control of all features. The large LCD display features alphanumeric memory names (9 character) and soft key descriptions. The LCD even supports a simple band scope display. Other advanced features include: IF Shift, RIT, Tone Squelch, Scanning, Noise Blanker, Speech Compressor, Mini Spectrum Scope and Electronic Keyer. This latest version in the 706 series includes the UT-106 DSP module as a standard feature. Despite its compact size it has big, easy to use control dials.

It's OK...just

ICOM IC-706MKIIG, Mobile HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver

I've owned 4 of these. I like the way they look, and they work OK, but the receiver is not all that good. Noise is the main issue. Would have been a great radio if the receiver was better. This radio also gets hot. Even when receiving. 4 or 5 hours powered on and even the face plate gets warm.

First HF rig

ICOM IC-706MKIIG, Mobile HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver

This was my first HF rig, and is still my favorite. Crisp, clean audio on both transmit and receive, good filtering, excellent band coverage. What's not to love? The only thing that would make it better is a DTMF mic, 220 xmit capability and a better computer programming interface.
