Hi! I just opened up my Icom IC-706mkiiG and did an
incredibly easy install of my new UT-102 Voice Synth.
module. I put the cover back on my IC-706 and hit
"lock" for two seconds to get a gimmicky voice that
announced the frequency and mode. Not too helpful
for the visually impaired, as it does not help with
the menu setups, however I guess it has its uses.
One complaint I have with the unit is that its
output level is set so loud that it distorts. This
is not the internal speaker or the headphones, as
I can turn the AF Gain down and quieten the speech
level from the UT-102, but it still clips. In spite
of this annoyance, it works as advertised. Is it
worth the USD$50 that http://www.universal-radio.com
wants for it? I dunno. I've given you my $.02 worth
