Features that make most hams smile with delight. I will be adding one to my shack if possible! (they are not for sale yet, FCC thing). This really is an impressive and feature rich radio. I can not wait to see one in action!
HF to 1200MHz Mutli-band in one transceiver
The IC-9100 fully covers the HF/50, 144, 430/440 amateur bands in multiple modes. By installing the optional UX-9100 1200MHz band unit, you can be operational on the 1200MHz band immediately.
Independent dual receivers
The IC-9100 has two independent receivers in one radio and receives two different bands simultaneously. In addition, the main and sub-band audio can be controlled with independent volume and squelch knobs, and received audio can be heard separately when external speakers are connected.
Satellite mode operation
The satellite mode synchronizes the uplink (transmitting) and downlink (receiving) frequencies, and tracks the frequencies in the same tuning step. This function matches both normal and reverse mode satellites. Compensation of the Doppler effect can be performed easily. 20 alphanumeric satellite memory channels store frequencies, mode and tone settings for quick set-up.
