Icom 7610 High Resolution Images And Video
Out this week. The UK site has posted some Icom 7610 high resolution images. This is the best look I’ve seen of the rear. If you haven’t heard, Icom will be coming out with the IC -7610, the big brother to the Icom 7300. Furthermore, the Icom IC-7610 will be Icoms replacement for the Icom 7600. I have also included a recently released video clip below.
Many Hams are anxiously waiting for the release of the Icom IC-7610 and Ham radio stores are offering registration purchases at this time.

“Icom Inc. has released more details about the launch of the IC-7610 HF/50MHz SDR Transceiver and its target price. Icom plans to release this high performance HF SDR transceiver around late May with the product being rolled out across the globe in the following months. We expect that the IC-7610 should be available in the UK early Summer with a suggested retail target price of £2,999.99 ex.VAT. Please note that this target price and UK availability may be subject to change.” – Icom UK Release and Pricing Announcement.
Icom 7610 Video – Mouse Point And Click
At first I thought, no big deal, but look at little closer, the radio operator will use the mouse to point and click on a frequency and the transceiver changes frequency. You’ll see this on the external monitor as well as the IC-7610 LCD. The PC mouse operation is only available on the much more expensive Icom IC-7700, IC-7800 and IC-7851!
BTW, the Icom 7610 HF / 50 MHz band transceiver has two independent receivers and is dual watch capable, different band / different mode. See this link.
My question: What will the blue USB 3.0 port on the rear be used for?
