Icom 7610 and Icom 7300 Week in Review | Firmware, Video, Screen Captures


I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Vorrei imparare ad usare IC7610 con i modi digitali , in particolare con FT8 e usare i software per CW RTTY etc.
Ci sarebbe qualche manualetto epecifico solo per questi digitali ?

Really appreciate the videos on the 7300 and FT8 mode. I just got my license in 2017, and just started using FT8 in the past week when I got my first antenna put up (end fed half wave at a summer home), and am quickly becoming “addicted” to this. Especially useful are the reception reports at pskreporter.info, where I can quickly check how well my signal is getting out. So far I am limiting power output to 10W, until I fully understand what I am doing and why with the radio and software.

Your videos have been helpful setting up my 7300 for FT8. I just use a single USB cable between the 7300 and computer. I’d like to see a video on setting up the 7300 with WinWarbler for rtty using a single cable, too, if that’s even possible.

Hi Rich,

I followed your youtube video to update my 7300 and it worked perfectly, thanks for all your info.

On my computer the audio was a little low, but I could hear everything by using a headset.

Another great informative post. You might mention that the firmware download must be un-zipped. You then just drag the un-zipped .dat file over to the 7610 folder of your SD card or thumb drive so it will be copied into the 7610 folder. Icom has made it easy. Keep up the great posts! 73, Ray AA4EZ

I am not clear on the capabilities of the two cables – CI-V and USB.

With one USB cable can I use N1MM as a spectrum display and a rig controller?

Or is a CI-V cable also needed in this case.? I will not be doing RTTY or CW from the software.

Hello Dick,

I have a question for you. I currently have an ICOM 7600. I run it with Ham Radio Deluxe and HDSDR which gets a tap off the IF using an RTL-SDR dongle. I get rig control though HRD so when i click on a signal i see in HDSDR it changes the frequency on my 7600. My SDR dongle also tracks the frequency show on the ICOM dial since it is getting its signal from the IF of the 7600. This works very well for me. I also play with SDRPlay with the SDRUno software. I read your blog about taking a feed off the antenna input on a 7300 so you can have a setup simular to mine.

Here is my question: Since the 7610 and the 7300 are SDRs, why doesn’t ICOM (or someone else) come up with a GUI similar SDRUno or HDSDR or SmartSDR (Flex) for the 7300 and the 7600. This could provide the RF spectrum display, the waterfall, the audio spectrum display and waterfall all via a single USB cable like is done with a Flex and SmartSDF. Have you thought about this? Am I missing something? I’m gonna hold off upgrading my 7600 to a 7610 until this happens. If ICOM came up with this, I think it would make the 7610 blow away the Flex.
