ICOM IC-7300 and IC-705 Firmware Updates


Joe KCØOIO
 

Icom released firmware updates for the IC-7300 (Version 1.41) and the IC-705 (Version 1.26) July 9th. I have downloaded both and installed both in less than a total of 10 minutes.

For the 7300, you can download the firmware here: https://www.icomjapan.com/support/firmware_driver/3339/
Changes from Version 1.40
- Added the set item to detect the Microphone PTT operation during transmission other than the Microphone PTT operation. 
- When in the Center mode of the Spectrum scope screen, the REF level setting does not reflect the scope waveform during transmission.
- This firmware update version 1.41 has been improved, so it will not reset settings and memories.
If the firmware is updated from version 1.40 or earlier, the settings and memories are not reset. 
However, if the firmware is reverted to 1.41 from a later version (after 1.41), the settings and memories may be reset.

For the 705, you can download the firmware here: https://www.icomjapan.com/support/firmware_driver/3343/
Changes from Version 1.24
- When in the Center mode of the Spectrum scope screen, the REF level setting does not reflect the scope waveform during transmission.
- This firmware update version 1.26 has been improved, so it will not reset settings and memories.
If the firmware is updated from version 1.24 or earlier, the settings and memories are not reset. 
However, if the firmware is reverted to 1.26 from a later version (after 1.26), the settings and memories may be reset.

Step-by-step instructions for updating the firmware on each radio is provided in the notes section of the firmware download page. Follow them and you will have no problems with the update.
 
Sorry 7610 owners, no firmware update since Version 1.30 was released 4/23/2021. You can find that update here https://www.icomjapan.com/support/firmware_driver/3298/ if you haven't installed it yet.
