Icom IC-7000 Pre-Release
IF-DSP Technology Comes To A New Multi-Bander!
That's two times the DSP in the IC-7000 that will leave many base station rigs in the noise! While it is too early to list all the great features, here are a few to keep you talking!
Improved AGC loop performance
With Multiple AGC loops, you will never experience AGC pumping from a signal filtered out by the DSP! The digital IF filter and manual notch filter are included in the AGC loop, so you will never encounter AGC blocking. As with the 756PROIII and IC-7800, the AGC time constants are adjustable for slow, middle, fast for each operating mode.
Digital IF filters
All the filters you want at your fingertips! You will never have to purchase “Optional” filters as the IC-7000 has 41 different filter widths. You just dial in the width you want and select whether you want a sharp or soft filter shape for SSB and CW modes. Then to pull-in the the weak ones, a quick turn of the the concentric twin PBT knobs, allow you to either narrow the IF passband, or shift the entire passband to eliminate the QRM.
2 MNF (Manual Notch Filter)
Pull out the weak signals in crowded band conditions with Icom's NEW two-point MNF manual notch filter. Apply 70 dB of rejection to two signals at once! Notch width is adjustable — wide, medium, and narrow — and an auto-tuning notch filter is available, too.
Digital voice recorder (DVR)
Record your callsign, CQ, or other information in 4 transmit playback memories with alphanumeric labels. A total of 90 seconds is available for the four memories. A front panel REC control allows you to record incoming signals, too! The DVR makes portable contesting or mini-expeditions a breeze!
Flexible installation with detachable panel
Smaller than the IC-706MKIIG, the IC-7000 measures only
167(W)'58(H)'180(D) mm*1. With the
detachable front panel*2 many
installation possibilities are available.
*1 69⁄16(W) 29⁄32(H) 73⁄32(D) inches
*2 An optional separation cable is required
Remote Control Microphone
The supplied HM-151 remote control microphone allows you to control often used functions of the IC-7000. This includes band hopping with Icom's Triple Band Stack registers.
2-mode band scope
The band scope function lets you watch conditions around the band. In Center mode the band scope is centered on the receiving frequency. In Fixed mode the band scope sweeps a fixed range.
2.5-inch color TFT display with TV screen receive capability
The IC-7000's display presents numbers and indicators in bright,
concentrated colors for easy recognition. You can choose from 3
background colors and 2 font styles to suit your preference. Not only
does the display provide radio status, but you can watch NTSC M or PAL B
on VHF-TV channels!*
* Not available in all versions
Eight of the most-used radio functions are controlled by dedicated function keys grouped around the display for easy visibility. One quick touch turns the function on and off. A longer touch activates adjustment of the function's setting.
The internal memory keyer provides 4 memories for station information or contest exchanges, calling CQ and call sign with up to 55 characters for each memory. The keyer also performs automatic repeat, automatic contest serial numbers, and “cut-numbers”.
