New Firmware Icom 7300 v1.30 | Icom 7610 v1.10 Cautions

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 have a new driver, but it does not play well eith those of us using Omnirig . The firmware update went well. The new driver threw me for a rabbit hole adventure. I reloaded older driver, now back up and running.

I have the IC-7300 and love its simple to use controls. I’m in the process of gathering all of the resources needed to install FT8. Will this update affect any of the digital settings on the radio – if installed?

Hi Rich, watched your video clip and wondered that you reformatted the card again.
It’s formatted earlier (it’s an update you’re talking about). Save settings and backup the card to a PC and then copy the extracted firmware ver. 1.30 into the existing 7300 folder on the card and then put the card back on the radio.

Could you update your screen shots for the IC-7300 to show the settings changed by the 1.3 firmware.
Thanks,

Hi Rich,

I wonder if and how we could let Icom open up the 472-479 kHz band for transverter output, as done for 135.7 to 137.8 kHz, as well and I would like to know why the latter is not the case in non-European versions. Many countries in Europe have opened 630 meters for CW and low bandwidth data. As far as I know this is also the case in your hemisphere. I gather this can be implemented in a firmware update.

Peter
