The IC-706MKIIG carries on the '706' series tradition of base station performance
and features in a mobile rig-sized package. Building on this legacy, frequency coverage
is expanded to the 70 cm band and output power is increased for the 2 m band. A
long list of enhancements, both to usability and performance, as well as added features
and functions have produced the latest in the evolution of the '706' series.
HF to 70 cm band coverage
Operating frequency range has been expanded to the 70 cm band. Of course, all mode
operation (SSB, CW, RTTY, AM and FM) is possible and a full 100W of output power
is available for HF and 6m operation; 50W for 2m and 20W for 70cm operation.
High stability transmitter
MOS-FET power amplifiers are employed at the PA unit for all HF, 6m, 2m and 70cm
bands. And, a one piece aluminum, diecast chassis with a large cooling fan is employed.
This combination provides stable, high quality output with low IMD and low spurious
emissions even during full duty cycle and extended operation.
Illuminated keys and switches
Backlighting of keys and switches is a great help during nighttime operation.the
intensity is even adjustable!
Tone squelch standard
Tone squelch operation is available in FM mode for basic signalling and quiet standby.
Tone frequencies can be set independently for tone squelch (Tx/Rx) and repeater
tones, and a range of 50 frequencies is available. A tone scan function is available
to search for a repeater's access tone quickly and easily.
DSP capabilities are available*. These include
noise reduction and auto notch functions. Superior receive quality in your shack,
vehicle or during DX'peditions.
*AF DSP; UT-106 DSP UNIT required for some versions.
Compact with detachable panel*1
The IC-706MKIIG is very compact at 167(W) × 58(H) × 200(D) mm*2 and
weighs a mere 2.5kg*3, making it ideal for DX'peditions, etc. A detachable front
panel allows easy installation in your shack or in a wide variety of mobile applications.
*1 An optional separation cable is required;
*2 69/16(W)×29/32(H)×77/8(D) in;
*3 5.5 lb.
Automatic repeater function*
An automatic repeater function is available and repeater frequencies can be programmed
via a special operation. This eliminates the need for repeater settings for 6m,
2m or 70cm repeater operation.
*Standard for USA version; programming required for others.
Optional high frequency stability
±0.5 ppm of high frequency stability is provided when an optional CR-282
HIGH STABILITY CRYSTAL UNIT is installed.
The individual band change key, a sub dial and quick band change capability provide
simple operation. The individual band change key allows quick and easy QSY, the
sub dial enhances mobile and memory operation, and the quick band change capability
selects pre-set frequency bands with the last-used frequency and mode. Also, each
band can store preamplifier/attenuator and tuner on/off settings.
Simple band scope function
This function sweeps ±14 steps from the displayed frequency
and plots received signal strength on the function display. This function is useful
not only for checking HF band conditions, but also seeking vacant frequencies during
VHF or UHF FM operation.
Narrow FM capability
For FM operation on the 10m or the 2m (where narrow FM is required) bands, the IC-706MKIIG
has narrow FM capability that allows you to take advantage of this operating mode.
107 memory channels with alphanumeric name capability
99 channels can memorize both transmit and receive frequencies separately; 6channels
are for programmed scan edges; and 2 channels are for call memory for the 2m and
70cm bands. And, up to 9-character alphanumeric names can be programmed into each
