Innovative IC-7300 HF/50/70MHz Transceiver launched at Tokyo Ham Fair 2015

Icom Inc. had a huge amount of interest on its stand at last weekend’s Tokyo Ham Fair 2015 with the unveiling of the IC-7300 HF/50/70MHz Transceiver.

The launch, which caught most people by surprise, saw the manufacturer introduce a new base station transceiver incorporating the latest RF direct sampling system, a first for an Amateur radio transceiver*.
The IC-7300 transceiver, an aesthetically, attractive looking base station, features a 4.3 inch touch screen colour TFT LCD screen with a high performance real time band scope.

A first for an Amateur radio transceiver, the IC-7300 uses a RF Direct Sampling System, a technology normally seen in Software Defined Radios. RF signals are mostly processed through the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array), rather than by physical devices enabling high performance real-time spectrum scope in a compact body.

The IC-7300 includes a built-in integrated wide-frequency Automatic Antenna Tuner making ideal for field operation. The radio provides 100 watts output power on HF/50MHz bands and 50 watts on 70MHz (European versions only).

Icom Inc. has produced a pre-release leaflet for the IC-7300 which you can download from this page. This information is preliminary and a full document will be made available nearer to the product’s launch.
So far, we have no details about pricing and availability.

*Researched by Icom Inc, among major Amateur radio manufacturers
