Icom will be releasing new firmware for our IC-705, IC-7300 and IC-9700 transceivers. The updates are planned to improve the user experience and incorporate communication modes such as FT8.
The firmware is due to be released around the end of January 2021 starting with the IC-705 (Version 1.20 added 22/01/21) and followed shortly by versions for the IC-7300 (Version 1.40 added 26/02/21) and IC-9700 (Version 1.30 added 26/02/21).
Planned updates include
• One-touch FT8 mode preset
• Scroll mode automatically keeps the operating signal within the scope range
• Multi-function dial items have been improved (New for IC-7300 and IC-9700)
• Compatible with the AH-705 antenna tuner (for IC-705)
• WLAN (Access point) function is added (for IC-705)
• Other updates are planned for each model
Icom also plans to update the RS-BA1 Ver2 (Version 2.30 added 05/03/21), CS-705 (Version 1.10 added 22/01/21) and the CS-9700 programming software (Version 1.30 added 26/02/21).
We will update this page when each firmware/programming software is updated.
