In the tradition of the top-of-the-line transceivers IC-7800/IC-7700 Icom now offers the IC-7600. The receiver is a double superhet design with IF DSP, resulting in a much better intermod free dynamic range. Icom claims 104 dB dynamic range and an IP3 of +30dBm. Equipped with two 32bit Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) the receiver has two AGC loops, one analog, one digital. This results in a perfectly controlled gain control.
Three selectable 1st IF roofing filters (15, 6 and 3 kHz) provide a very good selectivity, especially at SSB and CW modes. The other IF filters are - as usual - freely programmable, due to the DSP design. THree filters can be programmed for each mode. With the well known twin passband tuning a fine tuning of the optimal bandwidth is possible during operation.
The IC-7600 offers the possibility to listen to two frequencies in one band at the same time (Dualwatch). This enables you to listen to the DX station on one VFO, and to the pile-up on the other.A must have for the serious DXer.
And the powerful signal processors offer many more functions, for example an effective noise cancellation, a variable noise blanker, automatic or manual notch filters with three selectable bandwidths, voice recorder functions for receive and transmit and much more. A precise TCXO (temperature controlled crystal oscillator) is factory installed, resulting in a very high frequency stability of ±0.5ppm. Especially digital modes like PSK31 etc benefit from this high stability.
The large colour LC display (5.8") offers a wide viewing angle and is for the first time equipped with a white LED backlight. This greatly reduces heat and has a much longer life than traditional CCFL lights. The multi function meter does not only display transmit power and signal strength, but also current and temperature of the final amplifier, SWR, ALC and compression level and much more.
A USB keyboard can be directly connected to the transceiver, allowing operation in PSK31 and RTTY without a computer. Another USB interface on the rear offers the usual remote control functions plus the receive and transmit audio. This allows for a much easier computer/transceiver integration.
Many more improvements like a selectable amplifier keying (FET or relay), freely programmable band edges, a solid 100 W FET amplifier and much more turns the IC-7600 into the perfect HF transceiver for the ambitious radio amateur. And as usual with the best Icom quality!

Frequency Extension for RadiosPlease note:
All radios supplied by WiMo normally cover only the amateur bands (transmit wise).
The frequency extension of a radio (TX open) is done on explicit request by the customer.
Amateur Radio transceivers are usually not specified for use outside the amateur bands. In some cases the radio and especially the final amplifier or output filters can be damaged when transmitting outside the amateur bands. These damages are not covered by any warranty.
The manufacturer warranty might be voided in some cases as well.
