We report Doppler-only radar observations of Icarus at Goldstone at a transmitter frequency of 8510 MHz (3.5 cm wavelength) during 8-10 June 1996, the first radar detection of the object since 1968. Optimally filtered and folded spectra achieve a maximum opposite-circular (OC) polarization signal-to-noise ratio of about 10 and help to constrain Icarus physical properties. We obtain an OC radar cross section of 0.05 km2 (with a 35% uncertainty), which is less than values estimated by Goldstein, 1969and by Pettengill et al., 1969, and a circular polarization (SC⧸OC) ratio of 0.5±0.2. We analyze the echo power spectrum with a model incorporating the echo bandwidth B and a spectral shape parameter n, yielding a coupled constraint between B and n. We adopt 25 Hz as the lower bound on B, which gives a lower bound on the maximum pole-on breadth of about 0.6 km and upper bounds on the radar and optical albedos that are consistent with Icarus tentative QS classification. The observed circular polarization ratio indicates a very rough near-surface at spatial scales of the order of the radar wavelength.
