HF/50/144/440 MHz Multimode

From HF to 50/144/440 MHz, you can enjoy a variety of bands in the D-STAR DV, SSB, CW, RTTY, AM and FM modes. The IC-705 receives continuously from 30 kHz through the 144 MHz band. You can also enjoy FM broadcast and air band reception.

RF Direct Sampling System

The IC-705 employs an RF direct sampling system, where RF signals are directly converted to digital data. Then processed in the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array), making it possible to simplify the circuit construction as well as reducing internal noise that can mask weak signals.

Real-Time Spectrum Scope and Waterfall Display

Performance seen with the IC-7300 and IC-9700 spectrum scope is at the tip of your fingers for field operation. You can quickly see band activity as well as finding a clear frequency, all in the compact radio and not as an expensive add-on. Scroll mode automatically keeps the operating signal within the scope range.

One-Touch FT8 Mode Preset

Preset memory offers smooth FT8 mode operation. You can start FT8 mode operation only by selecting [FT8] from PRESET menu. Up to five preset memories can be stored.

Compact and Lightweight Design

"Base Station" performance in the palm of your hand! You will quickly see how this compact radio is rugged, for outdoor use, in a small, lightweight package, weighing approximately 1.1 kg (2.4 lb).

BP-272 Li-ion Battery Pack or 13.8 V DC External Power Supply

Utilizing the high capacity Li-ion battery from the ID-51A and ID-31A handheld radios.

A 13.8 V DC external power supply can be used for operation and charging of the BP-272.

Maximum Output Power 5 W (BP-272), 10 W (13.8 V DC)

In portable mode, the IC-705 has the maximum output power of 5 W from the BP-272 which can last approximately 3 hours*. This is perfect for true 5 W QRP as well as the 0.5 W QRPp operations. Once you setup with a 13.8 V DC power source, you have up to 10 W.

WLAN/Bluetooth® Technologies

Utilize WLAN/Bluetooth® technologies for linking and remote control, for a true wireless operation.  The VS-3 headset (optional) enables more comfortable operation via Bluetooth®

GPS Functions

An internal GPS receiver and antenna enhance your operations by providing location logging*, RX/TX locations via D-PRS , “Near Me” repeater search/scan, QSO recording with metadata*, and internal clock synchronization.  

microSD Card Slot

The microSD card slot enables the storage of user profiles, QSO recording, TX voice memory keyer, RTTY logging, GPS data, screen capture, firmware upgrades, and programming.

Micro USB Connector

In addition to the two COM ports, radio control plus audio, the IC-705 can be charged via the micro USB port.

D-STAR Functions

Enjoy the latest DV mode features with the IC-705. Have direct access to the D-STAR network with Terminal/Access point modes. Additionally, the IC-705 has the Photo Share feature introduced with the IC-9700. Share photos, without the need of a computer with other users with an IC-705 and IC-9700.

What is D-STAR?

The term D-STAR is Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio.

It is an open protocol for digital communications established by JARL (Japan Amateur Radio League).

Optional Backpack, LC-192, Ideal for Field Operations

Designed to be the "Ultimate", must have accessory for the IC-705, the LC-192 is the perfect utility backpack. Features like a safety strap, with a 1/4”-20 mounting lug to keep the IC-705 from accidentally falling out of the custom radio compartment, to the user adjustable internal panels for custom compartments for antennas, battery packs, or other items necessary for an afternoon SOTA activation.
