 with equalizer.......... contour control for receive to boost readability of bassy SSB signals

Ignacy, NO9E

Just a thought, quite ironic really - the contour control to "boost readability of bassy SSB" most often caused by the provision of an "equaliser" and their users over-emphasising the "bassy" content.  Undecided

And for the Icom haters out there. Why did I order a 7610? Two reasons:

1- Because I enjoy my 7300 SO much.
2- Just because, I CAN. ha ha Grin

Comedian Jack Dee with his trademark expression.

Yeah, can see the Larry Hagman resemblance.

" Icom haters" Nah its called science, the science of testing and measuring. If you dont measure you wont know. You best hate your politicians because you cant measure them because they so crooked.

Once  the Icom IC7610 is measured time will tell how good or bad it is. If you want to fly blind and buy a untested  radio that might have poor performance thats your business. But you cant call a person who asks for verified data that matches the advertising hyperbola a"hater", we will leave the voodoo to the CB'ers and stick to the science. Many  hams are smart and spent their dollars wisely and will shop based on buying the maximum performance for every dollar invested. I would call that smart and not  "hater"

The ICOM IC7610 will be judged against other direct sampling radios. Smart buyers will check for the following
'
1. How much of a crippled SDR it is.
2. Does it have good receiver performance
3. Does it have a clean transmitter with good TX IMD performance
4. Does it have low TX phase noise
5. Does it have a click free CW signal
6. Does the receiver have low inband audio IMD
7. Is the S-meter relatively  calibrated like almost all other  SDR direct sampling radios
8. Can it key any amplifier without blowing up  parts of the radio?
9. Are the RX antenna ports protected on  Transmit
10. Are the noise blankers effective
11. Does it have severe latency


The above features every radio should get right, especially in the year 2017. If you cant achieve the above minimums in a new transceiver  design today you are not trying very hard especially when just everything is done in firmware. Its not hate its about science and specifications.
