Reviewing the Icom IC-905 SHF/VHF/UHF All Mode Transceiver

With the much-anticipated UK release of our all new IC-905 SHF/VHF/UHF All Mode Transceiver around the corner, we were lucky enough to get our hands on two of them and asked our friends at TX Films to see if they would like to be the first to do a review. In the resulting YouTube video Bob McCreadie (G0FGX) of TX Films, along with Dave Crump (G8GKQ) and Noel Matthews (G8GTZ) from the British Amateur Television Club, put the IC-905 through its paces, producing a video that demonstrates the IC-905’s impressive features and capabilities.

In the video, Bob McCreadie takes us through various aspects of the IC-905 including:

– Introduction to the IC-905 SHF/VHF/UHF All-Mode Transceiver.
– Connectivity…an overview of the sockets and connections on this radio .
– Menu navigation on the IC-905.
– Overview of the RF Unit and Transverter.
– Field Test on Bulbarrow Hill in Dorset including ATV and 10Ghz SSB Tests.
