Icom finally published the official release date and the recommended price. The IC-7300 should be available by January 2016 at a price of about 140,000yen, that is equal to about US$ 1,200 or EUR 1,100
This new model has a high-performance real-time spectrum scope and
employs a new RF direct sampling system. The IC-7300’s real-time
spectrum scope provides top-level performance in resolution, sweep speed
and dynamic range.
While listening to received audio, the operator can
check the real-time spectrum scope and quickly move to the intended
signal. The combination of the real-time spectrum scope and waterfall
function improves the quality and efficiency of HF operation.
