HF ALL BAND TRANSCEIVER

IC-718

THE ORIGIN OF THE HF TRANSCEIVER

Simple Operation

The IC-718 is equipped with a minimum number of buttons and controls for simple feature selection. The 10-key pad on the front panel allows direct entry of an operating frequency or a memory channel number. The auto tuning step function is activated when turning the dial quickly and helps speed up tuning. The band stacking register is convenient when changing operating bands.

Front Mounted Loud Speaker

The IC-718 has the speaker mounted on the front panel. With the speaker facing the operator, audio will be heard clearly and directly while operating.

Optional* DSP Capability, UT-106

The optional DSP unit gives you noise reduction and auto notch filter functions for extra receiver performance.

*Already installed for USA version.

General Coverage Receiver
