The Pan Adapter 9700 is a specialized accessory designed specifically for the ICOM IC-9700 transceiver. It serves as a panadapter and offers the ability to monitor activated VHF, UHF, and L band receive (RX) channels of the IC-9700 simultaneously.
The key feature of the Pan Adapter 9700 is its high impedance probe, which allows for non-intrusive monitoring of the transceiver's RX channels. This means that it does not load or significantly impact the IC-9700's performance while providing monitoring capabilities.
By using the Pan Adapter 9700, users can effectively monitor multiple RX channels on the VHF, UHF, and L band simultaneously. This can be particularly useful for amateur radio operators, radio enthusiasts, or anyone who wants to have a comprehensive view of the signals in those frequency ranges.
The Pan Adapter 9700 offers an RF output, which allows for the connection of external devices such as software-defined radios (SDRs) or spectrum analyzers. This feature further enhances the monitoring capabilities and flexibility of the IC-9700.
Overall, the Pan Adapter 9700 is an accessory for IC-9700 users who want to expand the functionality of their transceiver. It provides a convenient way to monitor multiple RX channels across different frequency ranges without compromising the performance of the IC-9700.
- Solder/hassle free installation
- Installation is totally reversible
- Allows activated VHF, UHF, and L bands to be monitored at the same time
- Does not load the RX lines of the radio
- Simple, compact, robust design
- Passive probing for the highest SNR
- Fail-safe, does not affect the functionality of the radio even with the hardware failure
- Does not combine PPS signal with the RF output for highest SNR
