Icom 7300 Firmware V1.40 – 3 Big Improvements

K0PIR

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.

They also appear to have fixed my pet peeve: Response of the audio gain dial. Now there is a much smother response at low volume levels.

Did not find a hint that now the 60m Band Button is implemented. Can it be that no one than me is missing that ? – Are all the hams driving a car where the 2nd or 3rd gear is not there ? …. ..

You can program the channels or frequencies as a memory channel. Once there, you can scroll up or down the 60M band.

Have a strange happening on FT8. Works great on 10,15,20,80 meters. But on 40 meters it says an input error. I don’t understand; it was working great and then all of a sudden no 40 meters. What should I look for? Thanks for all of you great videos

I can’t seem to get Winlink to transmit using either VARA HF or Ardop under the new firmware regardless of what settings I adjust. I tried the default preset and FT8 preset just to see what would happen. I finally had to downgrade back to 1.30 and all was well. Anyone else having trouble with Winlink under 1.40?

Nice article, Rich. Thanks for posting.
I believe the Power Setting (under “Multi”) is not new, but the other items surely are and very handy.

I notice a significant increase in audio distortion after applying the update. Anyone else notice this?
