Just picked up a Maritime transceiver, the IC-M710.
The station operational from 1.6 to 30MHz, so TX on all bands 160 - 10m.
Now I need to learn to operate the thing, it is not quite the same as a normal HAM transceiver, but there will be time for playing, the set tunes in 100Hz steps, but with a clarifier.
Capable of running 150W out continuously (I have heard), the radio can be used for heavy duty operation
Now for some playing...
FT8 it's a winner! - 28 MHz FT8 mode last night open to VO1NE GN27 S.A. PY LU CX CE good signals after repairing the wire antennas damaged in the storm last week 80m...
