Icom IC-7100

Touch Screen Interface

The angled radio control head features a large, multi-function, “touch screen”‘ dot-matrix LCD display that is positioned for easy view and operation. It also allows you to operate it while wearing gloves. The control head’s rear panel includes an internal speaker plus jacks for external speaker/headphones, CW key and microphone.

The innovative touch screen interface provides quick operation for setting and editing various functions and memories. Just tap the frequency, mode, filter, function etc, and quickly navigate through the changes you want. Additionally, the touch screen also allows you to input alphanumeric characters for call signs or memory channels.


Intuitive Touch Screen Interface
An amateur radio first! The touch screen interface provides innovative quick and smooth operation for setting various functions and editing memories.

Slant Top Controller
The slant top controller display faces the operator and is designed to increase visibility of the display. The built-in highefficiency oval speaker provides easy to hear audio.An external speaker and electronic keyer can be connected to the controller.

D-STAR DV Mode Operation
The IC-7100 provides D-STAR DV mode digital voice and low speed data communication. Linking of D-STAR repeaters over the Internet allows you to communicate long distance with digital modulated clear intelligible audio. D-STAR: Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio




IF DSP Features
The latest 32-bit floating point DSP supports many digital processing features such as digital IF filter, twin PBT, manual notch filters. Of course, those high grade digital processing features work on all ham bands, from HF to the 70cm band.

Optional Suction Cup Mounting Base, MBF-1
The optional MBF-1 is a suction cup mounting base for easy installation in your vehicle.
MBA-1 Mobile Mounting Bracket is also required.

(Radio supplied with IC-OPC2253 separation cable kit)

Multi-band, All Mode Operation at Your Fingertips!

Icom changed the way hams think about mobile HC communication in 1995 with the introduction of the IC-706. Since then, the Icom Mobile HF radios have been the Performance HF mobile radio of choice. At the 2012 Tokyo Hamfair, Icom once again changed mobile HF communications by introducing the IC-7100. The ease of operation with fingertip control utilizing the intuitive touch screen interface with the power of 32-bit IF DSP.
