New Product Profile: ICOM IC-705 Portable Transceiver Backpack

Leave it to ICOM to think of everything when a new rig comes out. This is definitely the case with the ICOM IC-705 HF/50/144/430 All Mode Portable Transceiver. In addition to add-ons like the AL-705 Magnetic Loop Antenna, made by alpha antenna™ for use with the IC-705, ICOM offers the optional IC-705 Portable Transceiver Backpack. It features:

  • Rugged nylon construction for years of outdoor use
  • Specially-designed compartment for the IC-705
  • Lower compartment with ample room to store accessories like the AL-705 loop antenna
  • Reinforced side panel that allows you to mount a portable field antenna for more hands-free operation
  • Integral thumbscrew to keep the rig secured
  • Integrated portals for easy feed-through for your HM-243 speaker mic and antenna leads
