HF Transceiver 160m - 6m
The IC-7610 is the successor to the IC-7600 and is a dual-watch capable HF+50 MHz 100W base station with built-in antenna tuner.
The LCD is be touch screen and you will be able to connect an external display.
The biggest announcement made is that the receiving section has changed from the conventional superheterodyne method to a "direct sampling method" like the IC-7300. Equipped with real time scope, "complete dual watch" will be possible like Icom's top of the range transceiver, the IC-7851.
The main band and sub bands are completely independent and different frequencies and modes can be received simultaneously. Different antennas can be connected, and two speakers can be connected. You can also output it even if you divide left and right with headphones.
Other features :
- 7-inch wide, touch screen colour liquid crystal display
- Built-in speaker, same diameter as the IC-7300.
- External digital display terminal (DVI)
- SD card slot for easy firmware updates
You can listen to the main and sub with one antenna, and you can also divide the used antenna between the main and sub. Also, "diversity reception" can be also used in which the same frequency is received by different antennas. AGC control is separately possible.
BNC connectors have been adopted on the rear RX ANT IN / OUT and transverter terminals
Faint signals are no longer a challenge for DXers and Contesters around the world, with the new IC-7610. The difference between putting the QSO in the log or trying another time is the capability of your receiver.
The high performance RMDR in the IC-7610 has the ability to pick out the faintest of signals even in the presence of stronger, adjacent signals. The IC-7610 introduces dual RF direct sampling receivers. Achieving 100dB RMDR, these receivers rival that of other top-of-the-line transceivers. The IC-7610 also comes with a high-speed, high-resolution, real-time spectrum scope on a 7-inch color display.
- Output power:100W (25W AM)
- RX Frequencies:0.030-60.00MHz
- Receiver type: Direct sampling
The IC-7610 employs an RF direct sampling system, where RF signals directly convert to digital data and then processed by the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array). This process reduces distortion that naturally occurs in the various mixer stages found in traditional superhetrodyne receivers.
The RF Direct Sampling System in the IC-7610 is capable of 110 dB* RMDR. This performance gives you the ability to pull weak signals out of the noise of strong adjacent signals. There is a difference you can actually hear as the desired signal comes out of the pileup!
* Representative value at 2 kHz frequency separation (Received frequency: 14.2 MHz, Mode: CW, IF BW: 500 Hz)
IC-7610 RDMR characteristics
Independent dual receiver
Whether listening to both sides of DX station running split, or looking for a multiplier on a different band or mode, the dual receivers in the IC-7610 have you covered. Two separate DIGI-SEL preselectors, two separate Band Pass Filter networks, feed two separate A/D converters into the FPGA.
IC-7610 Dual Receiver
The DIGI-SEL preselectors are RF filters with sharp, narrow passband characteristics preventing Analogue-to-Digital Converter overflow from large out-of-band signals when sampling the RF signals. Additionally the third and higher order IMD components are reduced. This is ideal when strong signals are received in a contest pile-up or from broadcast stations on adjacent frequencies or bands.
The large 7" colour TFT touch LCD offers intuitive operation of functions, settings, and various operational visual aids such as dual spectrum scope aligned vertically or horizontally, simulated analogue meters and RTTY, PSK31/63 mode decoded messages.
The combination of the touch screen and the multi-dial knob offers quick and smooth operation. When you push the multi-dial knob, menu items are shown on the right side of the display. You can select an item by touching the screen and can adjust the levels by turning the multi-dial knob.
