Icom Station Loans

7300 Front PanelIcom America and the Boy Scouts of America have a sponsorship agreement that began in 2012 and now extended through 2018. One aspect of that agreement is that Icom America will provide up to 10 complete amateur radio stations for use by local Scout councils. Stations can be requested for long-term development loan stations and for event loan stations. You can find the details, application, and loan agreement here.

The station consists of an Icom IC-7300 HF Transceiver, PS-126 power supply, SM-30 desk microphone, SP-5 external speaker, AH-710 folded dipole antenna, and the necessary connecting cables, all housed in a waterproof Pelican case for storage and shipping. Here's a few photos of the system.
