Interesting no one mentioned this about the IC-7300. The radio works well in quiet locations. Band noise up to an S5. Noisy locations (over S5 band noise) makes the receiver very noisy itself. I compared a TS-590SG to the IC-7300 with same antenna, location and outboard speaker. The TS-590SG on SSB without any DNR received slightly better vs the IC-7300 on SSB with the IC-7300 DNR set at level 4. No DNR use on the IC-7300 and I could not hear the SSB signal at all. I sold my IC-7300.
