    What size SD Card should I get for my IC 7300? The book shows anywhere from 2 GB thru 32 GB.

    I don't think that I will be storing QSO's, but in the least, I do want to save my settings and assigned memory channels, plus RTTY and Voice Macros.

    I have been using a 16GB class 10 card for the past year. Lots of config files saved, no problems.

    yeah, I think mine was an 8gb basic nothing special card, and it worked just fine.

    There are so many fake SD cards around, even from "trusted" sellers.
    I bought one which was marked as and detected as 16G but in fact had less than 2Gb of real storage,
    The cards firmware was hacked to lie about its capacity and the system would blindly keep writing files, a lot of which were not subsequently readable.

    Always test new SD cards for speed and capacity on receipt. There are plenty of free utilities to do this.

    Update: I went to Best Buy and purchased a 32G San Disk. Good price too! That was the smallest card they had. All the others were large ones.
    Thanks guys for all the suggestions!
