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?

Thank you again for visiting my website. I hope you find the content informative and useful. Hope to hear you on the air, best 73! – Rich, K0PIR

      Hi Joe nice to hear from you. I understand you want to connect a monitor to your 7610??

      You will need a DVI monitor cable to connect a monitor to the back of your 7610. There is a DVI port on the rear of the 7610 for a monitor connection.

    is it true that a external monitor causes 2 s units of noise that’s picked up buy the radio.

      Hi Robert,

      Nice to hear from you and thank you for commenting.

      Not that I am aware of. I have a monitor hooked up to my 7610 and haven’t noticed anything.

      If that happens, I’d like to know about it. Maybe it’s caused by the monitor, a monitor adapter or a monitors power brick.

      Thanks for the question and I’ll keep an eye on it.

      Best wishes to you and yours.

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for the comment. When I was at the Hamvention in Ohio, they would not give a final date. They just said in the Fall, I also heard September or October. That’s the best I could get. I’m waiting also! Best 73 and hope to hear you on the air. – Rich, K0PIR

    I hope you have one on order. Your blog posts and video guides have kept me sane with my 7300 and digital modes. I’m certain it would be a welcome service to future 7610 owners.

      Hi Jim,

      Thank you for the comment and yes, I do have a reservation in.

      I think the 7610 will be the SDR radio that picks up where the 7300 left off. I look forward to the dual watch, external monitor, mouse support and larger screen.

      I think I’ll eventually put my Icom 7300 in the camper so I can operate with it portable in the campgrounds. It’s such a great rig for digital modes. I won’t wake anyone up 🙂

      Thanks again Jim and best 73,
      Rich, K0PIR
