Technical Description IC-9700-remote server built in

The Icom IC-9700 is an all-mode transceiver for the VHF and UHF bands 2 m, 70 cm, and 23 cm. It is an SDR, a Software Defined Radio. This means that the received signal is digitized as early as possible and then further processed. Direct sampling is used for 2 m and 70 cm, the 23 cm band is brought to an intermediate frequency of around 341 MHz via a mixer and digitized afterward. This way, Icom achieves excellent RF characteristics in terms of sensitivity, selectivity, and large-signal strength. Classic crystal filters are no longer required, but almost any filter can be defined individually for each operating mode. Further technical development can be implemented with software upgrades.
Transmission processing is also done digitally, after which the generated signal is converted and amplified in analog. This way, very good spectral purity and excellent phase noise values are achieved. The frequency stability is already quite good at less than ± 0.5 ppm. For particularly high demands on accuracy, an external 10 MHz reference signal can be fed in. In addition, the IC-9700 is equipped with all the connections you would expect from a modern transceiver: LAN for remote control and updates, USB for digital modes and CAT control, and much more. Thanks to the consistent use of uniform connections for accessories, remote control, etc., the IC-9700 also makes it easy to continue using existing accessories.
With a width of 240 mm, but a height of only 94 mm and a depth of 238 mm as well as 4.7 kg, the IC-9700 is a compact device despite all its functions and transmitting power. The power supply of 13.8 V / 18 A is possible with a mains adapter, but also mobile – a mobile mount is also available –, or on a field day or expedition.
