WIMO Expert opinion

You experience state-of-the-art radio technology with access to several bands that were previously only accessible with great effort, offering you completely new possibilities. Thanks to the weatherproof outdoor unit directly on the mast, you can enjoy maximum signal quality without disruptive cable losses. You benefit from convenient control thanks to the controller design, which is based on the user-friendly IC-705. The integrated GPS receiver ensures precise frequency stabilization, guaranteeing outstanding frequency accuracy even on higher bands.
The need to mount the HF unit externally can be a challenge for some installation sites. The purchase of the optional 10 GHz extension incurs additional costs if there is interest in operating on this band.

Technical description IC-905

The IC-905 transceiver consists of a controller and an external RF unit. The controller inherits the look and operation of the popular IC-705, but the entire RF technology is located in its own housing (RF Unit), which is mounted externally on the mast, very close to the antennas. This avoids high losses via long coaxial cables.


The controller and the RF Unit are connected via a weatherproof Ethernet cable. Not only the control is transmitted via this cable, but also the power supply. This is done via "Power over Ethernet", a well-known and widespread standard in network technology for supplying remote network devices. The supply voltage for PoE is 48 V, so power losses on the cable are reduced.

The HF unit is weatherproof (IPX 5) and has all transmit and receive technology for the 2m, 70cm, 23cm, 13cm and 6cm bands. In addition, a GPS receiver is built in, which serves to stabilise the frequency of the built-in OCXO. This provides exceptional accuracy and stability even on the high bands. The transmitting power on 2m, 70cm and 23cm is 10 Watt each, a common antenna connector is available for these three bands (N-socket). On 2400 and 5600 MHz the transmitter offers 2 Watt power each, there is a separate antenna connector (SMA socket) for each band. The 10 GHz can be used via a CX-10G HF unit. This box, which is also weatherproof, is also attached directly to the mast near the antenna. The CX-10G option is connected to the HF unit via a control cable, and the GPSDO reference clock is also passed on to this unit. The transmitting power on 10 GHz is 500 mW.

The IC-905's control unit inherits the look and ease of use from the popular IC-705 transceiver. The colour touch display is 4.5 inches, spectrum and waterfall display with adjustable bandwidths are available.

The operating voltage is 13.8 V, the 48 V required for the power supply of the RF unit is generated by the controller (Power over Ethernet). An Ethernet port is available for integration into the radio station. Configuration data, memory, images and other data can be stored on an optional SD memory card. For connection to a local PC, the USB-C socket can be used. A weatherproof Ethernet cable is supplied to connect the controller to the RF unit.

The Icom IC-905 offers professional RF technology for the highest frequencies, in a design that is accessible to every radio amateur. As usual for such high frequencies (the IC-905 offers operation up to 10 GHz), the entire RF technology is weatherproofed on the mast, very close to the antennas. This avoids cable losses.

Operation is via a controller that looks exactly like the popular IC-705 and is also operated in exactly the same way. The large, colour LC display is touch-sensitive, and many functions such as band selection, operating mode, etc. can be controlled here.  The loudspeaker on the front ensures good intelligibility; alternatively, the loudspeaker microphone or headphones can be connected on the side.

The IC-905 offers all common operating modes, i.e. SSB and CW, AM, FM and with D-Star also digital voice operation. DV and DD modes are supported, DD mode with up to 128 kb/s. The IC-905 can also act as an access point for D-Star and be operated in terminal mode. D-Star picture transmission is also supported.

Another special feature of the IC-905 is the FM ATV mode, i.e. analogue amateur television. AV inputs and outputs are available for this, so an extremely inexpensive analogue camera is used (option). The received TV picture can be displayed full screen on the built-in display. This allows excellent ATV QSOs, with appropriate antennas even at long distances.

With the design of the IC-905, Icom is breaking new ground in many areas. Up to now, the higher frequency bands such as 13 or 6 cm were only accessible for self-built devices. Accordingly, the activity on these bands was low. That the operation on the SHF bands can be very fascinating is shown by many reports about rain scatter on 10 GHz, or also the operation on the QO-100 satellite. And even if you don't have a large antenna mast or your own house available, the IC-905 with its compact design offers ideal possibilities for portable operation, for example from elevated locations. With the IC-905 all-mode transceiver now on offer, these high amateur radio bands will certainly enjoy greater popularity in the future. be used via a CX-10G HF unit. This box, which is also weatherproof, is also attached directly to the mast near the antenna. The CX-10G option is connected to the HF unit via a control cable, and the GPSDO reference clock is also passed on to this unit. The transmitting power on 10 GHz is 500 mW.
