Yes, March 1, 2017. Japan release date is already posted on internet by a few reputable businesses with contacts at ICOM.

No hits with Google search, so reputable businesses "in the know" must be well hidden. Smiley

I believe N8FVJ (an Icom 7300 hater), is just stirring the pot. If anyone is really interested in the 7610, just join the Yahoo 7610 group.

Lots of Icom 'experts' there. The radio will be officially 'announced' in Japan on Dec 10th. I have serious doubts the radio will be here until 3rd quarter '17.

Of course, I've been wrong before! Several times!!! ha ha

How ridiculous is a statement just because I did not like the IC-7300 I am stirring the pot. I am not posting here any longer.

James, how do the two rigs compare on CW ? Was the receiver in the 7300 just as noisy as in SSB ?  Did you find the RF gain difficult to use due to the max RF gain being at 12 o'clock instead of having a larger range . I tend to use the RF gain control a lot on CW no matter what rig.
Tnx for your input.  Max    Smiley

From what I seen posted the 590 did a better job then the 7300, this shows up in the ARRL lab numbers as well but they don't really go into detail as far as the RX sections sound in there reviews which may turn some buyers away from the 7300 like RX noise levels before you turn on any noise reduction. Just because someone didn't like the 7300 doesn't say he hated the radio, it just means his personal operator preferences were not met.
If I recall the 7300 was announced around six months before it hit the street so those release dates may be very close, that would make it a huge splash at Dayton 2017 but also the price is still TBA, no were is there any real numbers on that. I would like to see under the $3K mark but they just might follow the 7600 and price it closer to $4k which would IMHO price it away from being a big hit cause then your into the Flex 6500 range and that is a proven radio at this point. I will wait and see cause I would really like to see the lab numbers before I by a 7610 cause for now my three year old FTDX3K is doing just fine besting the 7300 in every area except for RM#'s which really only would count on CW but the blocking and dynamic range numbers on the 7300 are a little light. Icom to be right in there has to make the 7610 best a mid level HF radio's that use a supehet roofing filter DSP design plus have a low noise pre amp and stout band pass filter array. Too many radio's cover all of the HF spectrum but there front end band pass filters just are not designed for the amateur band use, for some reason that seems to be a selling point but is lost for my own personal use.  Before I by any radio I look at how they design the front end filters and the better radios use more like 15 of them not 8-9. also look at there cut off band pass as well.

KE2TR, hi. I'm really NOT trying to suppress FVJ's opinion. I value all input on all the things I interest me. Perhaps the OP has (what I believe), a very noisy location. Maybe he should have contacted Icom support about the 'noisy' receiver. I have more receivers than any 'sane' person needs, from Lafayette to Collins. I am amazed with the 7300 each time I use it. On that operating position, I have the following HF Icoms: 761, 756PRO, 745. I purchased the PRO in Japan while on business.

The 7300 DOES indeed have a very sensitive receiver. Lots of folks mention this and the Yahoo Group 7300 Moderator has continuously suggested using the RF Gain or an attenuator.
Just today, I had an email exchange with Rob Sherwood himself. He praised the 7300's performance in the recent CW contest. More than a few 'experienced' OPs with higher end radios like the TS-990 and IC-7800 say the 7300 has become their favorite.
I just don't understand people who buy a radio and then complain that it has only one antenna connector, etc. They knew that going in. Or at least they should have. I did and I know how to use an external coax switch.
If he was THAT disappointed, he should have taken my advice and joined the 7300 Yahoo Group. Moderated by Adam, AB4OJ, a retired Telecommunications Engineer.
I'm sure the 590SG is a fine radio. I may pick one up to play with. I do like some of it's features.
