  • Simple band scope
  • Adjustable SSB carrier point
  • Built-in electronic keyer function
  • Semi and full break-in (QSK)
  • CW reverse function
  • Vox
  • Fully removable with optional separation cable and mounting kit

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 100 W of output power is available for HF and 6 m operation; 50 W tor 2 m and 20 W tor 70 cm operation.

High stability transmitter

MOS-FET power amplifiers are employed al the PA unit for all HF, 6 m. 2 m and 70 cm bands. And, a one piece aluminum, die-casl 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 repealer tones, and a range of SO frequencies is available. A tone scan function is available to search for a repeater's access tone quickly and easily.

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 6 m, 2 m or 70 cm repealer operation. 'Standard lor 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.

Simple operation

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.

Narrow FM capability

For FM operation on the 10 m or the 2 m (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: 6 channels are for programmed scan edges; and 2 channels are for call memory tor the 2 m and 70 cm bands. And. up to 9-character alphanumeric names can be programmed into each memory channel.
