Icom 7300 Spectrum Scope Settings Video



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 replaced my Flex 6300 with the Icom 7300. I really miss being able to see the modulation type in use in the much larger scope with the Flex. With the Icom, I can just tell a QSO is taking place.

    I look forward to checking out these settings later.

    It would be nice to have those settings across the whole band rather than a small section of it. All it would take would be for Icom to have a single resolution setting, or to allow many more sections of a band that would jump or flow from one to another as one scrolled though a band.

    Mni tnx agn for the nice site and sri for a second posting.

      Thanks Guy. I agree, scrolling across seems like a no brainer, oh well. I think it would have been great if the 7300 just had an IF output on the rear, so maybe on the next one. At any rate, I sure am enjoying this one. I’m going to play in the RTTY contest this weekend. That should be fun. Best wishes, 73 – Rich K0PIR

    Thanks for your great website! Is there any software that will show the 7300’s waterfall/scope on my desktop monitor? I have a MAC MINI, and apparently MacLoggerDX won’t show the scope function.

      Hi Larry,

      Nice to hear from you and yes. Try RUMLogNG. It is fantastic with the 7300 and just great software for DX’ing. Works with Fldigi, JT Alert and WSJT-X combined. I love it.


      I haven’t had my newer iMac hooked up for a while. I have been having trouble with the USB driver and I’ll have to start fresh. When I get my SSD I’ll get it hooked up again.

      I hope you like it and thanks for commenting.

    Hi guys, I know this is late, but it might help someone else. The IC-7300 is a digital direct conversion receiver, so it doesn’t have an IF to output. You do have the option to configure 3 custom fixed band edges for each band section for the fixed display. They’re in the same menu with the other waterfall config items.

    Hi OM, I’ve noticed that the amplitude of the waterfall signals are much lower when viewing it in CENTER as opposed to FIX. It’s a dramatic difference, and signals simply disappear when switching from one view to the other. Any ideas on how to remedy this?

      Hi Lee,
      Sorry for the delay I didn’t see this question.
      I am not sure about what you are seeing, but many have mentioned the signals showing on the scope to not go high enough. There’s some good information on this at Icom 7300 Groups.io.

      Thanks again and best 73! Be safe!
