I was wondering if anybody new all about the IC-725. Like what filters you could get for it, if it works AM and FM without any accessory plug in. And what bands it will work on. 73 TNX

The IC-725 covers 160-10m ham bands (not including 60 meters) for transmission, and has a general coverage receiver 500 kHz-29.999 MHz for reception.

It does not work AM or FM without an optional "AM/FM module," which cost $72 back in 1990.  I have no idea if this might still be available somewhere.

(Note: The '725 will *receive* AM without the optional module, it just won't transmit.  It won't receive or transmit FM without the module.)

It's a 14 year-old rig that was basically Icom's answer to the Kenwood TS-140S in those days.  Not a stellar performer, but perfectly adequate for a starter or backup rig.  I had one in 1990, used portable for Field Day CW operation, and had fun with it.

The IC-728 is a superior radio with a quiet PLL.
