Smoother FT8 Mode Operation with Constantly Evolving Firmware
The latest firmware offers smoother FT8 operation. One touch FT8 mode preset, Scroll mode, WLAN (Access Point) function and other updates are available. See the Downloads tab.
Class Leading Real-Time Spectrum Scope
The IC-7300’s real-time spectrum scope is class-leading in resolution, sweep speed and dynamic range. While listening to received audio, you can check the real-time spectrum scope and quickly move to an intended signal. When you first touch the scope screen around the intended signal, the touched part is magnified. A second touch of the scope screen changes the operating frequency and allows you to accurately tune.
Real-Time Spectrum Scope Specifications
*Number of pixels shown at the 60dB level, when receiving a signal.
High-Resolution Waterfall Function
The combination of the waterfall function and the real-time spectrum scope assists in maximum receive performance of the IC-7300 and increases QSO opportunities without missing weak signals. The waterfall function shows a change of signal strength over a period of time and allows you to find weak signals that may not be apparent on the spectrum scope.
Scroll mode automatically keeps the operating signal within the scope range.

Audio Scope Function
The audio scope function can be used to observe various AF characteristics such as microphone compressor level, filter width, notch filter width and keying waveform in the CW mode. Either the transmit or receive audio can be displayed on the FFT scope with the waterfall function and the oscilloscope.

RF Direct Sampling System
The IC-7300 employs an RF direct sampling system. RF signals are directly converted to digital data and processed in the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array), making it possible to simplify the circuit construction. This system is a leading technology making an epoch in amateur radio.
New "IP+" Function
The IC-7300's RMDR is improved to about 100 dB* (typical value) and Phase Noise characteristics are improved about 20 dB (at 2 kHz frequency separation) compared to the IC-7200.
The superior Phase Noise characteristics reduce noise components in both receive and transmit signals.
15 Discrete Band-Pass Filters
The IC-7300 has 15 discrete RF band-pass filters. The RF signal is only passed through one of the band-pass filters, while any out of range signals are rejected.
High Q factor coils are used to minimize the loss in the RF band-pass filters.
Built-In Automatic Antenna Tuner
The antenna tuner memorizes its settings based on your transmit frequency, so that it can rapidly tune when you change operating bands.
The Enforced Tuning function* allows a wide range of temporary antennas to be tuned.
Multi-Dial Knob for Smooth Operation
The combination of the multi-dial knob and the touch screen 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 with a touch of the screen and adjust levels by turning the multi-dial knob.
Large Touch Screen Colour TFT LCD
The large 4.3 inch colour TFT touch LCD offers intuitive operation.
Using the software keypad of the touch screen, you can easily set various functions and edit memory contents.
One-Touch FT8 Mode Preset
Preset memory offers smooth FT8 mode operation.
You can start FT8 mode operation only by selecting [FT8] from PRESET menu.
Up to five preset memories can be stored.
Superior Sound Quality
To offer superior sound quality, a new speaker unit has been incorporated and is allocated dedicated space in the aluminum die-cast chassis.
SD Memory Card Slot for Saving Data
The IC-7300 can store various content on an SD card such as received and transmitted audio, voice memories, RTTY/CW memories, RTTY decode logs and captured screen images.
Personal and firmware update data can also be stored on the SD card for easy setting.
