Our sincere thanks to all who donated items for this year's auction and a special mention to the two organizations below who have chosen the highest level of participation as 2008 ARRL On-Line Auction Golden Gavel Sponsors.Golden Gavel Sponsor - Icom America, Inc. donates the IC-7000The ICOM IC-7000 represents the next generation in all-mode HF/VHF/UHF mobile transceivers. DSP at the IF level is the cornerstone of this impressive new multi-bander. In fact, the 7000 employs two DSP chips to work its magic. Imagine having 41 bandwidths available - standard! You can even select sharp or soft filter shape. And variable twin PBT allows you to either narrow the IF passband, or shift the entire passband to eliminate QRM. All the controls are intuitive to use.Eight of the most-used radio functions are controlled by dedicated function keys grouped around the display for easy visibility. One quick touch turns the function on and off. A longer touch activates adjustment of the function's setting. An internal memory keyer provides four memories for station information or contest exchanges. The keyer also performs automatic repeat, automatic contest serial numbers and cut-numbers. The Digital Voice Recorder (DVR) function has a front panel REC control that allows you to record incoming signals for up to 25 minutes.Other features include: a detachable control head (requires optional separation cable), 503 memories, S/PWR/SWR meter, RIT, Preamp, RTTY Demodulator, Attenuator, adjustable SSB bandwidth, NTSC video output, DTMF memory, VOX, full break-in and adjustable CW pitch.The IC-7000 comes with the HM-151 backlit remote mic, spare fuses, key plug and DC power cable.Please click the ICOM® link HERE for more information.
