Dayton Hamvention Celebrates 70 Years


KIRKLAND, Wash. (May 2022) – The world’s largest amateur event of the year is back after a pandemic hiatus. Celebrate the 70th Dayton Hamvention® with Icom from May 20-22, 2022, at the Greene County Fairgrounds & Expo Center in Xenia, Ohio. Attendees can find us at booth 2608 (Building 2), where we will have on display our newest handheld dual-bander, the IC-T10, the new IC-V3500 FM transceiver, the popular IC-705, our SHF-P1 concept radio, and much more. This year’s event theme is Reunion; let’s celebrate coming together again and commemorate Hamvention’s long history, stretching back to 1952.

The IC-T10 is a rugged MIL-SPEC radio with an IP67 rating (dust-tight and waterproof), making it perfect for a bug-out bag or emergency kit. Other features of this practical radio are 5W of RF output, 1500 mW of loud and intelligible audio, a Home Button on the top panel for quick calling channel access, an FM broadcast receiver with NOAA channels, and up to 11 hours of operating time with the included BP-280 battery pack.

The new IC-V3500 is a rugged 2m mobile FM transceiver providing a powerful 65W* of output power for long-range communication. This radio is perfect for long trips on the open road with a modern white display, 4.5W of loud audio output, instant Volume Loud/mute functions, emergency call/alert functions, and more.

Thanks to our hams, our popular IC-705 continues to be a big success. From HF to 50/144/440 MHz, you can enjoy a variety of bands in the D-STAR DV, SSB, CW, RTTY, AM, and FM modes. Other features include a 4.3-inch touch screen with live band scope and waterfall, Micro USB connector, integrated GPS with antenna and GPS logger, and more. New, optional accessories are also now available! The AH-705 antenna tuner and MBF-705 desktop stand are the perfect addition to your ham shack. Weighing in at just over two pounds, the lightweight IC-705 handheld with base station functionality has you covered – inside or out in the field.
