The HF bands allow you to communicate over long distances covering many km even to the other side of the world. With the superior performance found in the IC-718 such as wide dvnamic range, high C/N ratio, and full duty operation you will find making these contacts easy. Experience the combination of the latest RF and digital technology, along with the size and simplified operation. You will see the IC-718 will be the most practical rig you will ever own.
Front Mounted Loud Speaker
The IC-718 has a speaker mounted on the front panel. With the speaker facing the operator, audio sounds can be clearly heard without impediment during operation. It is no longer necessary to manually increase the volume to try and capture audio sounds.
Superior Basic Performance
The IC-718 has 0.03-29.999999 MHz* general coverage receive capability. A 4-element system is employed for the 1st receive mixer, providing superior receive IMD, especially from in-band near-by interfering signals. A well-designed double-conversion system to help minimize image and spurious responses for better signal fidelity, is also built-in. A newly designed PLL circuit has been adopted to improve C/N ratio characteristics. The combination of the 4-element system mixer and new PLL circuit allows superior basic performance as that of a commercial grade transceiver.
Interference Rejection - IF Shift
To reject interference, the IC-718 has an IF shift function which shifts the center frequency of the IF passband electronically to reduce adjacent interference.
This feature compresses microphone audio input to increase average audio output level. The result is, that talk power is increased. The compression level is adjustable for your preference. This function is effective for long distance communication, or when propagation conditions are poor.
RF Gain Control
RF gain control is combined with the squelch control. The
RF gain adjusts minimum response receiver gain, and ignores signals weaker than
the pre-set level - providing pleasant stand-by, or scanning.
Ample CW Features
An electronic keyer with a variable dot/dash ratio (2.8:1
to 4.8:1) control is built-in. By simply connecting a paddle, easy CW operation
can be made. The CW pitch and the key speed are also variable from 300-900 Hz,
6-60 wpm, respectively. Of course, full break-in capability is available with
the adjustable break-in delay.
