Designed by hams, for hams! Take your hobby with you into the great outdoors with the LC-156, Icom's Multi-bag '703 carrier. The LC-156 offers plenty of room to store and protect the gear you'll want to bring along for hours of fun operating the bands. It's the perfect way to combine a ham's love for both the hobby and the great outdoors!
DSP capabilities give you tools to reduce interfering signals, or just to dig weak signals out of the dirt. The noise reduction separates desired signals from noise and reduces the noise components for a clearer received signal, while the auto notch tracks and eliminates interference from a solid tone signal.
* Optional UT-106 required depending on version.
160-6m full coverage internal automatic antenna tuner, and low current PA
While in low current mode, the IC-703 automatically switches to 5W output power (2W AM). While on 13.8V DC, the output switches to 10W (4W AM). Antenna tuner PA unit

Low current mode
* Tx:Rx:Stand-by =0.5:0.5:9 in SSB mode.
Stay on frequency, indoors or out
Whether safe indoors or exposed to the cold temperatures outdoors, the IC-703 will be right on frequency with the standard ±0.5ppm TCXO.
The IC-703's receiver performance is in the same class as that of high end base stations: 0.16µV at 10dB S/N for 1.8 to 30MHz bands and 0.13µV for 50MHz at 10dB S/N (in SSB and CW modes).
Remote control head allows for easy operation while outdoors

The IC-703 has a built-in CW Memory Keyer with three memory locations and up to 50 characters per memory location.
Other keyer features include a variable CW pitch control (300.900Hz); operation with a bug; iambic paddles; or straight key. All these functions are available even when in low current mode.
Clean FSK, RTTY
Utilizing the TRUE RTTY mode, FSK, the IC-703 generates the tones internally for the cleanest possible signal on the band.
Also, whether operating FSK or AFSK data, you can tweak the IC-703 to be the perfect portable RTTY machine by adding the optional FL-52A filter.
455kHz IF filter selections
The 455kHz IF allows you to upgrade the standard 455kHz filter, FL-65, to improve your selectivity by installing an optional filter into the filter slot.
