IC-706MKIIG makes the use of power MOS-FETs in all PA sections, resulting
in a considerable increase in the level of output power. The 2m band has
been increased to 50W, with 20W on 70cm and 100W for the HF and 6m bands.
A tone squelch system has also been built in as standard, with an added
tone scan function in order to find a repeaterís tone frequency simply
The IC-706MKIIG is very well designed. The compact body now has a carrying
handle and the detachable front panel features many illuminated keys for
operation in low light conditions. Developed for simple operation, the
radio features an individual band change key and a sub dial to facilitate
mobile and memory operation which when combined with 107 memory channels,
proves extremely user-friendly. A user-programmable automatic repeater
function has also been installed, and repeater frequencies can be programmed
by the customer via a special operation eliminating the need for repeater
settings for 6m, 2m or 70cm repeater operation.
Other outstanding characteristics include an IF shift to reduce adjacent
frequency interference, dedicated socket for 9.6kbs data, narrow-FM capability
(including the 2m band), and a wide range of options including DSP capabilities,
three step-selectable passband widths and several automatic antenna tuners.
