IC-7300 low SSB power? Not anymore.

Here You can see two different Icoms IC-7300, both with newest FW 1.14 tested on 100W Spinner dummy load using standard hand Micropohone.

Do You need more explanation or You can catch conclusions yourself ? ;-) 



Thanks for my good friend Peter SP2DMB for cutting and producing the video, and for Mek SP7VC for lending the TRX for comparison.

  2. They want to sell this, if it should be free, it already would be published. So, thats not ham spirit :( They push it to big mystery

  3. Wonder who You are to put statements like this? Whatever.
    Don't You ever tell me what ham radio is. Read this blog instead, but do it carefully and You'll see what is all about here. I'm really amazed how stupid You are saying I want to sell something. Sell modification? Have You ever spend 2-3 months to do something to share with peoples and produce clear documentation to tell anybody "how-to" step by step?
    Obviously not.
    Don't You think it takes lots of free time?
    So sit and wait. This is a hobby, don't forget about it.

    1. Hello Greg, you are right, our today lives are very busy and it takes a bunch of time to do any HAM radio related project. Looking forward to hear from your trick to increase average power when you are done with the documentation.
      My best 73 and looking forward to hear you on the QRG.

  5. Hello, in my village, we have two ICOM 7300, I am very excited with this equipment, but my friend does not like ... He says on average power, which is lower than the 850S Kenwood, and in CW, the 850 is far superior to ICOM.

    The modification specify to the ICOM 7300 may not be equal to that of 7200 because internally they are very different equipment. It's a modified firmware? Or I really need to open the device?
