Microsoft Surface & IC-705 Portable Ham Radio?

Hello Operators.
This is the next video in the Icom IC-705 series. A big part of the discussion is using the Microsoft Surface tablet or laptop, together with the Icom ic-705. Additionally, we’ll be taking a look at the latest firmware update. This update, added new wireless remote control functionalities for voice and data modes, to the 705.
It really has to be said. Even if you don’t think you’d want the Icom IC-705, it is very important to watch this video. The video helps us understand the implications of the 705s release. I’m definitely an early adopter, but it will be extremely interesting to see how other amateur radio manufacturers, respond to the IC-705 capabilities.

In addition to my portable ham radio setup with the IC-705, we will go through the accessories used to make portable data modes like Winlink, JS8Call, FT8, all easier at home and or while operating portable. Finally, we’ll discuss how the Icom IC-705 has changed the way we operate at home, and in the field.
