Re: New IC7000 owner .

The IC-7000 has a deeply-nested menu structure, and it's not easy to get around.  The Icom manual is oriented "by feature", not "by task".

Your life will be easier if you get a copy of the NIFTY mini-manual for the IC-7000:

(and other sources).

The good part:

. . . Once you learn to use it, it's quite a nice rig!

Only one warning (IMHO):

. . . Leave the TX Bandwidth at "Wide".

I think that's the factory default.  Narrowing the TX bandwidth (IMHO) -- particularly, reducing the audio high-frequency limit -- leads to distorted output.

Have fun --
