The IC-9100 contains years of advanced Icom technology in a compact, all-in-one HF/VHF/UHF transceiver. This radio covers
most ham bands and modes, and provides a wide variety of operating styles. Whether you're working DX QSO, RTTY, D-STAR DV,
satellite or even moonbounce, Icom's years of technological experience is working right along with you.
The IC-9100's double conversion super-heterodyne system with an image rejection mixer reduces intermodulation
distortion. Icom's IF DSP technologies offer a host of digital features to guard against QRM and QRN, no matter which band
you choose to explore.
Multi-band, dual independent receiver
The IC-9100 covers 100W on HF, 50MHz and 144MHz, 75Q on 430/440MHz bands and 10W on the 1200MHz bands.
*1 The radio simultaneously receives two different bands (1. HF/50MHz +
VHF/UHF, 2. VHF + UHF, 3. 430/440MHz + 1200MHz) and works as if there are two independent receivers in one radio.
For example, you can arrange a 7MHz schedule QSO using a D-STAR repeater on VHF/UHF band, while watching 7MHz band
activity using the simple band scope.
*1 Optional UX-9100 1200MHz band unit required.
32-bit DSP and double conversion super heterodyne
Mucl like the technology in Icom's high-end HF radios, Icom has used a double conversion superheterodyne system
and an image rejection mixer in the IC-9100's HF to 430/440MHz bands. Each main and sub-receiver has a dedicated DSP
unit providing unit providing flexible digital IF filters, AGC time constant, twin PBT, manual and auto notch filter,
noise reduction, noise blanker, etc.
Optional 1st IF filters for HF/50MHz bands
The IC-9100 comes with a built-in 15kHz 1st IF (roofing) filter and can accept up to two optional filters (3kHz FL-431
and 6kHz FL-430) in front of the 1st IF amplifier stage. The 3kHz filter is especially effective in CW and SSB modes to
eliminate overloading caused by strong signals just outside the passband.
Optional D-STAR DV mode
A world first HF digital voice communications for amateur radio! Work D-STAR Dv mode in the IC-9100 by adding the
optional UT-121 D-STAR module. The DV mode is available in 28MHz and 50MHz bands simplex mode as well as in VHF and
UHF bands. 28MHz or 50MHz DX operation using DV mode will give you a new fun. In addition, the D-STAR repeater (DR)
mode operation makes it easy to access D-STAR repeaters.
USB connector for PC control
Modulator, received audio, RTTY demodulator, DV mode data can also be transferred over the USB cable. By using
appropriate 3rd party software, you can control as well as operate many of the digital modes via the single USB
connection. Using the CI-V data format, the IC-9100 can be controlled by a PC through a USB or CT-17 level converter.
GPS position reporting functions
The IC-9100 has a GPS button on the front panel. Your position data is shown on the display and can be sent to other
stations in DV mode*2. When a calling station transmitting GPS data via
DV mode is received, the IC-9100 displays the distance and direction to the station. GPS A mode is supported.
*2 Optional UT-121 D-STAR
unit required. External GPS receiver can be connected via data 1 connectors. Also, position data can be entered manually.
Satellite mode operation
The satellite mode synchronizes the uplink (transmitting) and downlink (receiving) frequencies and shifts the frequencies
in the same tuning step. 20 alphanumeric satellite memory channels store frequencies operating mode and tone settings
for quick setting.
Optional CS-9100 programming software
When used with the optional CA-9100 programming software, alphanumeric memory channels, callsigns, filter widths and
AGS settings can be easily made from a PC via USB cable connection. Share your memory channels info and radio settings.
RTTY demodulator and decoder
The built-in RTTY demodulator and decoder allow you to read an RTTY message on the air instantly. No external units or PC
Optional 1200MHz band unit
By installing the optional UX-9100 1200MHz band unit, the IC-9100 extends the coverage to the 1200MHz band. You can enjoy
L/V or L/U mode satellite operation.
