The Icom IC-7200 is a robustly built amateur transceiver providing coverage of HF amateur bands plus 6 meters. Power is 100 watts. Features include easy-to-use controls, DSP filtering with 51 passband widths, digital twin passband tuning, manual notch filter, keypad entry, dual VFOs, large display, voice synthesizer, 201 memories, 20 dB attenuator, preamp, 6 kHz roofing filter, RIT, scanning, 1 Hz step tuning and more! The excellent general coverage receiver tunes from 30 kHz to 60 MHz. The meter displays Power/SWR/ALC. Power is 2 to 100 watts (40 watts AM).

Although the IC-7200 is not waterproof, extra design steps have been applied to the front panel buttons and knobs. This provides a measure of protection against water intrusion. There is even a USB port on the rear panel! This radio comes with an HM-36 hand mic, OPC-1457 DC power cord and spare fuses.

The DXZone merges amateur radio and Internet, since early internet days. Established in 1996 as a radio-related-mailinglist, has registered its domain name in 1998. Main goal is to review and promote ham-radio web sites, classifying them in categories. The DXZone is managed by ham radio operators with ham radio operators in mind.
