EU VAT reform as of 01.07.2021: X

As part of the so-called "Digitalpaket", the introduction of a new VAT system with far-reaching changes for cross-border online trade with consumers is being driven forward at EU level.

As of 01.07.2021, in B2C distance selling (transactions with end consumers), the previously applicable VAT delivery thresholds in the EU will be abolished and tax amounts will be owed directly in the country of delivery.

The so-called "distance selling regulation" will then apply.

From this point on, cross-border deliveries of goods to non-entrepreneurs will be taxable in the destination member state, and the corresponding amount of VAT will be payable there.

This means, for example, that as of 1.7.21, 20% VAT will be shown on invoices for deliveries to France, and 25% VAT will be shown on invoices for deliveries to Italy. The recipient in Italy therefore no longer benefits from the 19% VAT rate in Germany.

Amateur radio and nature experience - what better way to combine this than with a nice portable activity? No matter if you climb the next mountain or try out a home made wire dipole on a beautiful forest clearing, fun is guaranteed. And what helps better than an almost perfect portable transceiver? The IC-705 offers everything that radio amateurs need to be QRV in all operating modes when on the road.

The IC-705 is a QRP transceiver for all shortwave bands, plus 6m, 2m and 70cm. The receiver is continuous from 30 kHz to 199 MHz, plus the 70cm range of 400-470 MHz. All operating modes are supported, including modern digital D-Star operation. The compact device is designed as a direct sampling SDR up to 25 MHz, following Icom's extensive experience with devices such as the IC-7300 and IC-9700. Above 25 MHz the IC-705 operates as a superhet or double superhet. The colour LC display has the same size as its bigger siblings (4.3" diagonal), it is a touch display. This makes the operation very easy, while retaining a clear and easy to use user interface. The colored waterfall display helps enormously in band monitoring, so you will never miss any activity. The loudspeaker on the front ensures good intelligibility.

As power supply either a rechargeable battery or an external 13.8V power supply is used. The included LiIon battery BP-307 has a voltage of 7.2V and a capacity of 3150 mAh. This provides an output power of 5W, with external supply up to 10W output power is adjustable. Of course the power can be reduced to 500 mW for QRP friends. With the battery several hours of fun are guaranteed during a hike or portable activity.

But also the other features of the IC-705 leaves hardly anything to be desired. Besides the classic modes like SSB, CW, AM and FM, the transceiver also offers RTTY, WFM and D-Star digital operation. This allows worldwide connections to be established via suitable repeaters. D-Star operation includes exact position information, therefore a GPS antenna is built into the IC-705. The GPS position can be recorded during the hike, so the device also serves as a position logger. The recording is done on an optional Micro-SD card, a slot for this is available on the side of the device. The SD card can also be used to record received QSO data and the configuration of the device. To allow a comfortable operation with headsets or a hands-free kit the IC-705 is equipped with modern Bluetooth. The remote control and configuration via computer is done either via the USB interface or wirelessly via Wifi.

The IC-705 offers fun - on the road, on all bands, in all operating modes. Now there's no reason to miss out on the radio hobby when out on the road!
