Does Icom say sound card?
Not sure what you need to bring out the I+Q.
It says USB port for audio in and out so maybe that could include the I+Q signals.

USB "audio in and out" means 'soundcard' audio in the context of this discussion. Could it include the I/Q? That would be optimum.

The IC-7300 should come in at about $1400 USD, to compete with the FT-991, a similar form factor, but different feature set.

The battle will be 'All Mode HF +6m SDR' vs 'Old School Shack In A Box'

You may have the wrong OP, OM. I haven't posted anything to that effect that I know of...

From the web:

News release 2015/12/7: Icom* shipping the IC-7300 within 40 days from this release date in Japanese market! (..link below)

Icom shipping the IC-7300 within 40 days from this release date in Japanese market! (news release 07/12/2015)

* For Japan domestic market, will be released in other countries at a later date.

Icom announced today, December 7th 2015, that delivery of the new IC-7300 will start from mid January 2016 for Japanese market, while for the rest of the world, date have not been defined yet.


In a japanese press release dated just a few hours ago, Icom finally published the official release date and the recommended price. The IC-7300 should be available by January 16th 2016 at a price of 139,800yen + tax, wich equates to US$ 1,134+tax or EUR 1,047+tax (expect VAT on top of that).

We asked the question of the Icom rep at the Newark Hamfest and he was also very cagey and just laughed it off so don’t really know unless as has been suggested there is a bug or possibly a manufacturing problem.

Dezember 2015 bekannt, das die Erstauslieferungen des neuen IC-7300 mitte Januar 2016 für den japanischen Markt beginnen.

In Australia the release of the ic9300 (?) caught the local ICOM office by surprize. the sales staff did not know it was coming. They do not expect to see onr till March next year. I believe they made the announcement to slow down the sales of other SDR radios from India and italy

IC-7300 press release http://Http://Www.Icom.Co.Jp/release/20151207/ 2015/12/07 announced the industry's first, high-speed real-time spectrum scope, was adopted RF direct sampling method most powerful compact HF transceiver IC- 7300. Name: HF + 50MHz for Amateur Radio transceiver Model: IC-7300 / M / S suggested retail price: 139,800 yen + tax Release Date: today than 40 days within a year plans to sell units: a total of 2000 units / year

139800 Japanese Yen equals 1148.6695 US Dollar

40 days within a year .... not much to go by...

Q1? Perhaps.

What's interesting about the forecasted price is the 7200 is being discontinued but not the 7410. I wonder to what extent the 7300 will erode  7410 sales.

I got play with one, off air, but powered on, at the Hamcation in Orlando two weeks ago. While the size and the shape is nice, I feel like it is super vanilla overall. It has basic menus, basic features, and the whilst the band scope is nice I feel, thus far, with limited impression that the radio is just an Icom equivalent to an FT-991 with a fast band scope. I think the biggest thing that absolutely killed this radio for me in the preliminary is the lack of an IF output connector. It should have been the very first feature a radio like this has. However, this doesn't discount the fact that there maybe some USB software or functionality since it has a USB port that allows IF output to PC via USB. A software defined radio with knobs looks very good indeed but I would truly loved to have been able to fully integrate it with my PC, shove the radio behind my amplifier out of site somewhere and used my PC to have full control over everything, ala Flex radio style without the large price tag.

Only time will tell.

The latest info I have on this radio, is that if it is used with the USB connection to the PC, and that PC is running ICOM's RS-BA1 software, the spectrum scope, and a control panel can be displayed on the monitor. Full control, full audio functions thru the PC sound card. It's also remote able over IP.
There is a small amount of latency between what displays on the radio screen, and the same signal showing on the PC monitor.
All this we have learned by watching a Japanese ham posted on his YouTube Vblog about the 7300.
Sorry, I don't recall the address. Just do a search.

Only time will tell.

Which begs the question,. why can't Flex or Anan offer a DDC/DUC 100w no control panel rig at the same price point? Makes you wonder... The functionality of the IC-7300 could easily be offered in a 'black box' rig at a sub-$1k price point. Why did Icom choose to skip that iteration?

Apparently none of these manufacturers are asking hams what they want.
