    We are proud to announce that ICOM America is providing a state-of-the-art transceiver to to our sweepstakes. The IC-7610 is one of the most exciting new radios on the market today.

    From the ICOM 7610 web page...


    Faint signals are no longer a challenge for DXers and Contesters around the world, with the new IC-7610. The difference between putting the QSO in the log or trying another time is the capability of your receiver. The high performance RMDR in the IC-7610 has the ability to pick out the faintest of signals even in the presence of stronger, adjacent signals. The IC-7610 introduces dual RF direct sampling receivers. Achieving 100dB RMDR, these receivers rival that of other top-of-the-line transceivers. The IC-7610 also comes with a high-speed, high-resolution, real-time spectrum scope on a 7-inch color display.

    Output Power:
    100W (25W AM)
    RX Frequencies:
    0.030-60.00MHz
    Receiver Type:
    Direct sampling
    RF Direct Sampling System
    The IC-7610 employs an RF direct sampling system, where RF signals directly convert to digital data and then processed by the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array). This process reduces distortion that naturally occurs in the various mixer stages found in traditional superhetrodyne receivers.

    The RF Direct Sampling System in the IC-7610 is capable of 110 dB* RMDR. This performance gives you the ability to pull weak signals out of the noise of strong adjacent signals. There is a difference you can actually hear as the desired signal comes out of the pileup!

    Independent Dual Receiver
    Whether listening to both sides of DX station running split, or looking for a multiplier on a different band or mode, the dual receivers in the IC-7610 have you covered. Two separate DIGI-SEL preselectors, two separate Band Pass Filter networks, feed two separate A/D converters into the FPGA.

    Dual Digi-Sel
    The DIGI-SEL preselectors are RF filters with sharp, narrow passband characteristics preventing Analog-to-Digital Converter overflow from large out-of-band signals when sampling the RF signals. Additionally the third and higher order IMD components are reduced. This is ideal when strong signals are received in a contest pile-up or from broadcast stations on adjacent frequencies or bands.

    Large Color Touch Screen
    The large 7" color TFT touch LCD offers intuitive operation of functions, settings, and various operational visual aids such as dual spectrum scope aligned vertically or horizontally, simulated analog meters and RTTY, PSK31/63 mode decoded messages.

    The combination of the touch screen and the multi-dial knob offers quick and smooth operation. When you push the multi-dial knob, menu items are shown on the right side of the display. You can select an item by touching the screen and can adjust the levels by turning the multi-dial knob.

    Additional Features:
    • Built-in automatic antenna tuner
    • Digital-Up-Conversion (DUC) for clean transmit
    • Dual receivers, dual spectrum scopes
    • DVI-D connector for an external display
    • SD memory card slot for saving data
    • I/Q signal output
    • Memo pad stores up to 10 operating frequencies and modes
    • Quick split function
    • Quick Dualwatch function
    • RF gain and squelch control with a knob
    • RIT and ΔTX variable up to 9.999 kHz
    • UTC/local clock and timer function
    • 1 Hz pitch tuning and display
    • Dial lock function
    • Adjustable main dial brake
    • External speaker jacks for Main and Sub receivers
    • Screen saver function
    • Multi-function meter (S-meter, Power, ALC, COMP, SWR, ID, VD and TEMP)
    • Auto tuning step function

    Would love to win this just to make my friend James AA5PD green with envy. He has a 7600 which is very sweet and I use some older Icom equipment such as the 756, 746 and 706MKIIG mobile.

    If he is like me he would rather have the 7600 since it does not require touching the screen so the radio will operate.I hope I Win it so I can buy another ICOM but it will be a 7800 or another 7600 with the funds from the Resale. :po_O:)
