Rated 3 out of 5 by from The rough n ready review IC7100 Design, when on the desk it looks like a 1980s radio clock alarm that is connected to its main body by a multi cored cable terminated with RJ45 plugs,the head unit has connections for mic,headphones and it's link lead. The body,disappointingly has an SO239 for its UHF connection although ok for HF and frequencies up to 60MHz is a bit of a cheap cop out for V/UHF where it should have been an N Connection.beside the typical connections described in the instructions this was my only gripe,power cable in the U.K. Has the separate filter unit for mobile environments and is better than average,yes Kenwood I refer to your pile of spaghetti on the 480HX. On Air Performance.. DSTAR.. reasonable,adequate,average are the words of the day if you like the internet style of radio and if you're within range of a dstar repeater ,it works . FM.. although through some analogue repeaters sounds a little thin is perfectly readable,on simplex sounds as good as the ic7000, This review is not to bash the radio but it is indeed a jack of all trades and not really a master of any, SSB PHONE, perfectly usable throughout the bandwidth of the radio ,I have no real problems although there are some reports of some 7100s being a bit lacklustre and not pushing the full 100W ,but given a good antenna you'll have no problems getting out. AM.. yup it works ,and is fine for the local nets. CW.. One of the better parts of the radio, WFM.. ok for listening to the 88 to 108 band the typical radio stations sound as you would expect a typical portable radio to,but far from hifi I won't bother with the RTTY decoder you're better off with a separate device for the digital modes e.g. JT65,psk31,wspr etc etc. Now for the guys that want to know about the SHTF mods use the hm151 mic open TX gives you a wide bandwidth from 1mhz on hf to 80MHz so covering all amateur he bands though 4m,works well on all CB 11m modes ,will do pmr but look out for those finals keep your VSWR`<1.5:1,they will easily fry and are not cheap to replace if you get someone else to do the work. CAN BE made into a manpack ,look at lipo,lifepo4 for power,I used a 17Ah 200Wh lifepo4 and 90%rx/10%TX,managed 19 hrs of use QRP. To get the best out of this thing it's all down to the antennas and conditions on HF,and above 30MHz,Height is might.get that antenna as high as you can. Now the cost,it's a big ask when there are so many rivals if you exclude DSTAR. but it's a good radio in the sub £1500 category for what you get. As fo the digital recorder the linked video is the actual audio recording from the ISS as it passed over London.Downlink frequency 145.800NFM
