IF DSP — First in its class
Digital IF filter, manual notch filter, digital twin PBT and more. The latest digital
features are incorporated in this compact radio from two DSP chips that deliver
superior processing performance. Of course, those features work on all ham bands,
from HF to the 70cm band.
AGC loop performance controlled by DSP
You will never experience AGC pumping
from a signal filtered out by the DSP system. The digital IF filter and manual notch
filter are inside the AGC loop, so you will not encounter AGC blocking. The AGC
time constants are flexibly adjustable from slow, middle, fast (or AGC-off) 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 adjustable digital filters. 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, with a quick turn of the concentric twin
PBT knobs, you can either narrow the IF passband, or shift the entire passband to
eliminate the QRM.
2-point 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 noise reduction
Noise reduction reduces background noise and improves signal-to-noise ratio. The
noise reduction level is adjustable in 16 steps. It improves the readability of
voice and data signals.
Digital noise blanker
The noise blanker reduces pulse-type noise such as engine ignition and sparking.
The NB level and width (blanking duration) are adjustable in 100 steps.
35W output in 70cm band
High power MOS-FET amps supply 35W output power on 430/440MHz band as well as 100W
on HF/50MHz bands and 50W on 144MHz. It provides stable, high quality output with
low IMD and low spurious emissions even during high duty cycle and extended operation.
High stability crystal unit
The IC-7000 incorporates a high-stability master oscillator, providing 0.5ppm (-0°C
to +50°C). A must for data mode operation.
DDS (Direct digital synthesizer) circuit
Icom's original DDS (Direct digital synthesizer) circuit improves the C/N ratio,
providing a clear, clean transmit signal in all bands.
Compact, all in one package
The IC-7000 sheds 20mm (25/32 in) of depth compared with the
Its compact body is easy for carrying outdoors or mobile operation.
User-friendly key allocation
Eight of the most-used radio functions such as NB, NR, MNF, and ANF 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
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 for up to 25 minutes (99 channels)*.
The DVR makes portable contesting or mini-expeditions a breeze!
* Up to 120 seconds per channel
Built-in RTTY demodulator
The RTTY demodulator and decoder
are built-in. External units and PC are no longer required for decoding. The twin
peak audio filter reduces interfering signals overlapping the tones and the tuning
indicator helps you zero-in with accurate tuning.
Remote control microphone, HM-151
The HM-151 has a 10-keypad for quick channel selection. The triple band tacking
register memorizes the last three frequencies and modes used on each band. Push
the band button once to three times to recall the channel setting. The F-1 and F-2
buttons are programmable as shortcut menus of your often used functions.
2.5 inch color TFT display
The 2.5 inch color TFT 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, in addition to a large operating frequency readout.
And more, the Video output jack on the rear panel allows you to view a magnified
display on an external monitor*.
* 3.5(d) mm monaural cable is required for connection.
SSB transmit bandwidth adjustable
The SSB transmit bandwidth is selectable from 100, 200, 300, 500Hz at the high-pass
edge, and 2500, 2700, 2800, 2900Hz at the low-pass edge respectively. 3 types of
high and low combinations can be set in the quick set mode.
2-mode band scope
The band scope function lets
you watch conditions around the band and visually assists in finding other stations.
In center mode the band scope range is centered on the receiving frequency (±10kHz
to ±250kHz). In Fixed mode the band scope sweeps a fixed range.
Multi function meter and SWR graphic display
The IC-7000 displays power
level, SWR, ALC and compression level of the speech compressor. The SWR graphic
display is useful for tuning antennas. The measuring step is selectable from 10/50/100/500kHz
steps and the number of measuring steps is adjustable from 3 to 13 steps.
