    Today, Icom released firmware version 1.11 for the IC-7610 that corrects the "missing preamble in scope data packet" defect in firmware version 1.10.

    Many thanks to Icom for their rapid response!

    Unlike Yaesu who still haven't corrected the Birdie on their panadaptors on the FT991A and ftdx3000 LOL

    YAESU = Yet Another Excuse Simply Useless.Kind of explains why they rarely ever fix things & just release another POS with more issues that never get fixed & people who are blind sheep just keep buying the Crap?

    Does the 7300 also have this? How are they eliminating the LO pip w/w effecting a signal that may be on or near that freq?

    Good news is that they can fix things like that with a firmware update and no need to replace hardware. My dad was a big Icom fan. Still have his 735 and 728. However, I still love my Drake 2-B. Still my favorite after 50+ years!

    Same question, did they fix the 7300? I don't see any updates on the Icom site. The latest firmware also wiped out RS-BA1 which I use extensively so hoping they fixed it as well.

    They would rather you buy a new radio.

    Firmware alone can not fix everything.

    The IC-7300's firmware update did not introduce the "missing preamble in scope data packet" defect.

    If RSBA-1 is not working correctly with your IC-7300, then I suggest that you contact Icom Support.
