Except when I'm out in the field, I prefer to carry the IC-7300, hihi. 73 Pascal VA2PV

Congrats on the awesome incoming radios!
Sacre Bleu ! C'est Magnifique !
Hope you tip the Mail Man at Christmas !
Enjoy Mon Ami !
And just think you could have had a 19 set like I did, I know there are lots of them in Canada!
nice going ! Look forward to your reviews and exploration.
The 7300 makes an excellent field day, SOTA, POTA, IOTA rig. Compared to most QRP rigs it has a high RCV power draw of 0.9A, but I don't find that to be limiting for casual operating with a Bioenno 20AH LiFePo battery and panel. Paired with an LNR end-fed quad , a Portable Zero pack and carry handles it's a great portable setup. Everything fits inside or strapped to the pack.
And if you want 100W you've got it plus a band scope and tuner.
WOW , just Wonderful . I am a Icom fan as well . Having a IC 746 and 7300 . Waiting for your IC 9700 review . I can only dream . 73 Steve N0SLT
Software Defined Radios do not imply or require external computers or I/Q ports, video screens, keyboards or a mouse. More and more radios with traditional format will incorporate SDR technology in the future.
You learning curve will be interesting. Please let’s us know how it goes. Cheers and congrats!
Very nice setup, you don't owe anyone an explanation about your purchases. Your entire station still cheaper than a new Harley-Davidson or bass boat, lol.
