|Heil and the IC-7000|
All of Heil's products built for the 706 will work well with the Icom
IC-7000. Headsets that work the best are The Traveler with the HSTA-iM adapter, Proset iC, and Proset Elite iC all use the AD1-iCM
adapter. For microphones the iCM and HM-iC HANDI MIC with the CH-1-iM cable.
Set the Transmit bandwidth in the WIDE position 200 Hz and 2900Hz. For
extreme articulation, contest or DX pileups ups use the MID or narrow bandwidth
On SSB, the Proset Elite 6 sounds absolutely spectacular. The high-frequency "sparkle" really works well with the SSB modulator. If you plan to use the IC-7000 exclusively on SSB, but not FM, then the Proset Elite 6, with the AD1-iM adapter cable, can be highly recommended.
If the FM mode is in play, then we recommend the Proset Elite iC, with the AD1-iCM adapter cable. It will not be quite as "bright" on SSB, but the audio quality is still excellent. And the "iC" element has plenty of drive to excite the IC-7000 to full deviation during FM operation. The HC-6 element of the Proset Elite 6 yields slightly less than full deviation, because of the lower available mic gain on the IC-7000 on FM.
