Icom IC-7300 eHam Product Reviews

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.

    How much does a IC-7300 COST?

      Hi Richard,
      The Icom IC-7300 is going for $1,499 in the US. It will be a steal when they start offering discounts!

      Thanks, best 73 and good DX. Rich, K0PIR

    Mr. Kopir ,I live in Bahia Blanca, Argentina and I have an Icom 7300. I ONLY use this rig to listen to ham and shortwave communications.
    Well I want to ask you if it is neccesary to change my 7300 for the new 8600 Icom receiver to get better reception.
    Thank you very much.

      Hi Celestino,

      It’s nice to hear from you and thank you for commenting.

      I have not used the R8600 wideband receiver, but I think it would be a very nice receiver for shortwave listening.

      From a website: The IC-R8600 will be able to receive a wide frequency range from 0.01-3000MHz frequency in analogue and various digital modes (D-STAR, P25, NXDN and dPMR).

      The IC-7300 has a fine receiver and I have been very happy with it.

      I think both radios are excellent for shortwave, the R8600 may be a little better in my opinion.

      Rich, K0PIR
