    Need info on an Icom IC-711. Can't find anything online about it. I'm a new ham and not well versed on the equipment yet. I got this in a box of old radios and am just trying to figure out if it's trash or treasure. Any help would be much appreciated. 73 from Stan KE0VQI

    I Googled it and came up with several 'hits' including owner's manual links, and review links.
    I think it was a popular 2-meter all-mode rig in its day.

    So why not post what you found?

    I did the same but found NOTHING other than sites selling manuals and of course eHam etc. reviews.... I'm guessing he needs a manual - if you don't mind, please post the link to it as it may help others. I couldn't find one for free - just eBay links to manuals for sale.

    Dave, I'm glad you asked me about that. On my second pass I found almost nothing about the IC-711, especially with regard to manuals. I must have been looking at TS-711 stuff the first time. My apologies for the big mix-up. I guess I'll be getting new glasses on Monday. :)

    Mods.dk has the ops manual.

    First time user would need to jump through the hoops of setting up an account (free).

    EDIT: Dang, I just made the same mistake. Found the FT-711 instead of the IC-711.

    Never heard of it.

    The TS-711 (Kenwood) was a pretty popular 2m rig. An "IC-711" denotes Icom as the brand and I don't recall an IC-711, ever.

    Can you post a photograph of it?

    Don't recall an Icom 711. Many years back owned an Icom 211.

    (Added) Not sure how accurate this is but RigPix has it as being manufactured between 1976-1978.

    I wonder if the IC-711 could be a model made for Asian or European markets which was not sold in North America?

    Possible typo?

    OP never returned...
