ICOM IC-705 & AIRPOD PRO'S

 A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN?

Well, what a surprise! I was just playing with my ICOM IC-705 when I noticed the AirPod Pro's were sat beside the radio and despite having previously tried and failed to get them working with my other bluetooth-equipped radios, I thought I'd give them a go.

To my amazement (and delight) they paired up without a hitch and worked on both RX and TX! Here's a video of my call-out for a radio-check. A lovely gent called Brian (M7DRB) came back to me and provided me with a very pleasing report...


 
I have to spend a few minutes in the menus to sort out the VOX delay settings and the job's a good un. Alternatively, you can assign a new function to the VOX button - change it to PTT. Since someone asked me, I should point out that the AirPods work on both channels.



AND REGARDING THE AIRPOD PRO's, I'd just like to point out that the Noise-Cancelling is just SUPERB!!!!!! Fantastic for when you're in a noisy environment and want to do a bit of SWL 😊
