    There is a new firmware version for the icom IC-7300 Version 1.20.
    I'm curious if anyone has any issues ore improvements found?

    I did the upgrade and no problems with it. But it looks that the issue with low power is been resolved.

    The link can be found here:

    I did the update today. Did not solve my low-power out issue on SSB. I was really hoping it would. I haven't had the radio long enough to have any other issues with it. Guess I'm working CW a lot for the next few days.

    It did not? hmmm strange. Did you also the 1.14 upgrade? i did that one also. For me this upgrade did change things during power out issue. I will check better then..

    Ended up just sending it back to the dealer. They're sending me a new one.

    Is there a chance that you are just tapping the confirmation screen, instead of holding it for a second? (long press)

    what file are you placing on the SD Card? Is the extension .zip or .dat?

    If it is .zip, you need to open the zip file and extract the .dat file to the SD card...

    And it needs to be copied to the IC-7300 folder otherwise, the radio won't see it.
