The iCOM IC 7851. Says it all.-Earlier 5-star review posted by G7EMK on 2016-10-26 Having owned and worked the iCOM ic 7800 since early 2005 I feel well placed to comment on this outstanding transceiver. The radio has provided flawless communicational enjoyment for 11 years. Icom IC-7000 vs Icom IC-9100 for VHF Simplex FM Receive. Just make certain the serial number begins with a 1,2, or 3. Mar 16, 2010.update. to the ic-7000 driver unit failure problem THIS INFORMATION IS NOT UP TO DATE - PLEASE CHECK THE POST OF JULY 1, 2010!! After my first experiences with this problem, I had recently proposed a simple preventive measure, consisting of adding a series gate resistance to the driver unit, which apparently suffers from instability with.

  • ICOM IC-7000 HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver. It also shares features with the IC-756PROIII. ICOM touts the IC-7000 as a mobile trans-ceiver, but, like the ’706, it will find its way into many a suitcase for DXpeditions and Field Day outings. For a lot of hams, it has. ICOM IC-7000, serial number 0501552.
  • ICOM Serial Numbers « Reply #1 on: October 06, 2002, 12:38:53 PM » Your Icom IC-706MKIIG must be a recent one my IC-706MKIIG is serial 4900 ballpark and I bought it in April of 2000. Judging by the IC-735 production figures mine was in the 29000 region and I bought it in 1991 the 7th year of its production run I think final production figures.

Hot News! New IC-7600 V2.00 Firmware was released on 18 May 2015. Click link below.

Once again, we are honored and excited to present a new Icom HF/6m transceiver.

The above photo illustrates the IC-7600 as presented at Tokyo HamFair 2008. The IC-7600 is a 100W-class HF/6m HF transceiver, utilizing Icom's well-known and proven IF-DSP architecture and feature set. Note the large TFT display screen. More information will be provided here as it becomes available.

The IC-7600 received FCC certification on February 9, 2009. FCC ID: AFJ307300.

In the photo below, it will be noted that the elimination of the moving-coil meter has freed up sufficient front-panel space to accommodate the IC-7600's larger TFT display.
