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.

    I am just amazed at how many flattering comments I recieve about my beautiful sounding audio from my 7300. I am often asked what microphone I am using. (I have only used the stock hand mike that ships with the radio.)
    I usually operate SSB, however this radio holds its own on AM too!
    My experience and opinion of Icom is that they have had some exceptional recievers but I never considered them exceptional “talkers” like for instance the Kenwood 830 or many of the loud Yaesu’s you hear out there.
    This 7300 not only hears exceptionally but it is also an exceptional high fidelity talker too!
    My audio settings are as follow:
    (Set submenu)
    TONE CONTROL/SSB/TX
    TX Bass= +1
    TX Treble=+2
    TBW (WIDE)= 100-2900
    TBW (MID)= 300-2700
    TBW (NAR)= 500-2800
    (Operator mode front panel settings)
    TBW= WIDE
    Mic Gain =64
    COMP=4

      Hi Brian,
      Thanks for commenting Brian and thank you for putting in your audio settings for the Icom 7300. I totaly agree on your assessment, the 7300 hears exceptionally well and the stock mic produces beautiful audio.
      Best 73, thanks for joining us and I hope to hear you on the air sometime.
      Rich, K0PIR
