New Toy, Heavy Stuff

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...
