Making Contacts and Testing the Icom IC-705 on HF (7 MHz)

Just a short video with some contacts made with my Icom IC-705 on 40 metres (7 MHz).

I was only using the internal battery and the antenna was a half wave end fed wire only a few feet off the ground.

Soon I’ll be upgrading the antenna to allow working on 80m and getting it much higher, but not bad for a first run. You’ll even notice a bit of DX from some US stations.

WSJT-X Setup on the Icom IC-705

The Icom IC-705 has not been added to the official list of radios supported by WSJT-X. In this video however, I will show you how you can set the radio up to work with WSJT-X and perhaps other digital modes.

As of the date of this video, the latest version of WSJT-X is v2.2.2.
https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/wsjtx.html

Future releases will no doubt support the IC-705 and when that occurs you will not need to change the CI-V address as per this video however all other settings will still be relevant.

Thanks to Kevin VK4UH on the CI-V setting

This Radio is AMAZING! The Icom IC-705 Unboxing and First Thoughts!

Today my Icom IC-705 arrived on my doorstep. I decided to get the camera out as quick as possible as I wanted to take the radio out, but not before unboxing to see what you get.

In Australia we have been privileged to be one of the first to receive the IC-705. In this video I give my first thoughts and unbox the radio. Please let me know in the comments what you think and if you will be purchasing the newest radio from Icom!
