Icom’s IC-7300 HF Transceiver Hits 100,000 Unit Sales in the Global Market

Since its debut in January 2016, Icom’s IC-7300 HF Transceiver has sold over 100,000 units globally. More than half of these sales are the USA version, which complies with FCC regulations and primarily targets the North American market.

The IC-7300 introduced an innovative RF direct sampling system, a first for Icom’s amateur radios. RF signals are directly converted to digital data and processed in the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array). This approach combines high performance with a simplified circuit design within a compact form factor. The integrated real-time spectrum scope and the waterfall function enhance receiver performance to increase QSO opportunities. These features were typically found in high-end models. The IC-7300 set the benchmark for performance and value and was warmly received by a diverse range of HF radio enthusiasts as the sales results show.

“We are delighted that the IC-7300 has found strong support from customers worldwide,” said the engineer of this products. “The RF direct sampling transceiver was a significant challenge, but our engineering efforts allowed us to balance compactness and high-performance for our customers. The IC-7300 is truly groundbreaking in amateur radio technology”.

International Sales Department General Manager added “The IC-7300’s popularity has been widely accepted in global markets. It has been well received by broad range of amateur radio users, from beginners to experienced operators, thanks to its reasonable price, superior performance, and extensive features. As a long-standing, best-seller product in our lineup, we will continue to promote the IC-7300 to meet ongoing demand”.
