Re: ic9700?

Bob Lockley VK6KW

Hello Alan,

I am looking for an IC-7100 with the 4m or 70MHz option as I have 2 of NEC-500 towers (5.7 and 10GHz respectively) that both require a 70MHz IF … so if yours fits that bill and you are tempted to upgrade, please let me know.


On that score I would like to hear from anyone with a working IC-7100 going spare. Or a 70MHz module for the FT-736R???


73 & happy DX,

Bob. VK6KW.

You’ve got me worried now. I was hoping to get into 23cm as a newcomer by using my existing IC-7100 and a bought transverter from SG Labs to get me on the air. I have been studying the effects of ALC overrun to ensure I keep any spurious emissions to a minimum and I have also done the path loss calcs because I want to learn and do this hobby properly.

Oh! Just like BT with ADSL.

We should be setting an example about pollution. How can we complain to others when we are guilty of the same offence?

People around Japan are complaining about drinking quality water being released into the Pacific.  Idiots are complaining about 5G.  People don't get spectrum pollution.

Yep how dare you critise or point blank refuse to accept they have a problem, even when they wiping out half the amateurs in the area, which is what happened locally when someone used one on a local high point.

I pointed them to look at last years convention talks. I think half the problem is they don't understand and don't want to be educated.  If you try and educate them how dare you!

Unfortunately the days of when operators understood or cared 2 hoots about phase noise , over driving linear s etc etc are long gone ....if some one has got a 9700 , IC910, FT991 etc etc they are not going to stop using it or sell it and buy a transverter and decent HF radio ....whatever that might be just cos Reg or anyone else says there signal is crap
