Icom Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Osaka-shi Hirano Ward, President: Tsutomu Fukui) will release the fixed-type amateur radio transceiver IC-7610 in HF + 50 MHz band from May 2017.
This unit adopts RF direct sampling system for signal processing. By converting the analog signal directly to a digital signal and processing it within the FPGA1 , it realizes improved transmission phase noise and excellent RMDR2 of 105 dB (at 1 kHz detuning) Furthermore, it has two independent reception circuits of main/sub identical performance, and it enables simultaneous reception of two radio signals of different band/different modes.
Boasting high-speed, high-resolution performance, real-time spectrum scope also supports different bands/dual display that can monitor different modes. It also has a waterfall display function that displays received signals in chronological order. Also, the DIGI-SEL unit is mounted on each of the main side and the sub side of the receiver, eliminating disturnacies from powerful shortwave broadcast stations. In addition, it adopts a large 7-inch full-color touch panel, realizing visibility of various setting information and intuitive operation.
In addition to high basic performance including RF direct sampling method, this station with many new functions is an authentic HF transceiver that fascinates a wide range of amateur radio users.


  • Further evolved RF direct sampling method.
  • Excellent RMDR: 105 dB realized.
  • Dual watch function which can receive simultaneously in different bands and different modes.
  • The DIGI-SEL unit that eliminates powerful unnecessary radio signals is installed in both the main and sub of the receiving section.
  • Equipped with high-speed real-time spectrum scope and waterfall display function.
  • By adopting the 7-inch full-color touch panel, outstanding operability and visibility are realized.
1 ...FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) is an integrated circuit whose designer can set the configuration.
2 ...RMDR (Reciprocal Mixing Dynamic Range) is an index of how much the reception sensitivity deteriorates due to blocking from a strong signal in proximity.
