IC-9100 HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver
IC-9100 Transceiver for Shortwave + VHF + UHF, Allmode + Satellite
The IC-9100 combines Icom experiences of many years in one radio. The shortwave receiver has inherited many features of the top radios: selectable roofing filters , doble super heterodyne receiver, IF DSP, two separate receivers and much more. Plus the well renowned tradition of Icoms V/UHF radios - now all in one radio.
Two independent receivers allow operation on two different bands, for example on shortwave + VHF or UHF, or VHF + UHF. In front of the first IF stage up to three selectable roofing filters reduce the bandwidth offered to the next stage. A 15 kHz roofing filter comes installed, optionally a 6 kHz or 3 kHz filter can be installed. Especially the narrow filters enhance selectivity on HF and 50MHz. Each receiver has it's own DSP which supports functions like IF filtering, notch filters, AGC control,pas band tuning, noise reduction and much more.
The transmitter offers a full power of 100 W on HF, 50MHz and 144MHz, 75 W on 430MHz and 10 W on 23cm with the optional 23cm module. An automatic antenna tuner for HF/50MHz is built in. The UT-121 D-Star option open the world of state of the art digital modulation on VHF an UHF, but also available on 28 and 50MHz. Together with the D-Star module comes the possibility to receive distance and position information from remote stations. Your own position is received by an optional GPS antenna or can be entered manually.
Also for the communication to the external world Icom uses well-proven and state of the art technology: the CI-V CAT interface, in use since more than 20 years is still available as well as a powerful USB socket. This USB socket offers not only CAT and remote control functions but also an audio interface. This turns the radio into a modem, it act's as an external soundcard to the computer. No more interface hassle required to get started with all computer-based modes! To decode RTTY you don't even need a computer at all, the IC-9100 does this internally.
Here you will find a preliminary datasheet of the IC-9100 (PDF, english).
: Operation on 23cm requires the optional UX-9100 module
