Hi Mark,

If you have a link to the manual, could you do us a big favour and post it?
I shall add it to my IC-7000 page,

Cheers for now, 73,

Re: Price of the IC-7000

Hi Buck,

Yes, the IC-7000 will use DSP filtering in the final IF. This is the same
technology as used in the IC-756Pro series, the IC-746Pro/7400 and the
IC-7800.

http://www.qsl.net/ab4oj/icom/pro_dsp.html

The ultimate performance of the DSP-IF subsystem - dynamic range, noise
floor, filter shape factors, noise reduction etc. is a function of the ADC
(analogue/digital converter) which is the interface between the analogue
RF/IF chain and the DSP. The faster the DSP chip, the better the filter
shape factors, NR etc. are likely to be. All the current Icom DSP-based
radios use a 24-bit ADC and DAC and a 32-bit floating-point DSP. The 756Pro
series uses the ADI SHARC, whilst the 746Pro and 7800 use faster TI devices.
The ADC used in the 756Pro series has a slightly better noise floor than
that of the 746Pro. The 7800 uses very high-quality ADC's which are rather
costly.

The demands placed on the DAC (digital/analogue converter are rather less
than those which the ADC has to meet, although the DAC plays an important
role in setting the dynamic range of the transmitter. The ADC is the key to
the receiver; if it degrades the incoming IF signal, all that information is
lost forever and cannot be recovered.

There are a number of articles covering these topics (and others) on my Icom
page.

Hello to all and thank you to the moderator of this reflector.

Ever since I have seen the IC-7000, I have been reading and talking about
it. Like most of us here, I have considered it the new IC-706 radio but
after all I have read and seen, I have begun to think that 7000 is to the
706 what the 756 pro is to the 746 pro.

What weighs most strongly is the fact that it will use electronic filtering
rather than the crystal lattice filter. If I recall, isn't this the same
filtering technology used in the IC-7800, the $10,000 radio?

From what I gather, the 706 is the most popular mobile HF radio on the
market with sales greatly exceeding its runner-up. Right now it sells for
about $800 US. I realize that the cost of technology drops over time, and
with inflation, prices rise a bit, but at this point I am wondering if the
rig might not be priced considerably higher than the 706. Around here, a
few hams are thinking it will be in the $1500 US range.

What do you all think?

I believe that Dave was referring to the IC-7000 itself. The 7000 will
replace the 706 line; I am speculating that there will also be a low-power
version to accommodate the Japanese 10W licence. It will replace the 703
series.

Re: Price of the IC-7000

Buck, I agree. The new rig could be 2 - 3 times more than a 706 (I hope not). Just like the Pro3 is 3 times the price of a 746Pro. This is only conjecture on my part, but is based on the price of other new radios they have come out with. I guess we iwll not know until it happens.

Hmm, I think that's the same with mine. Maybe we should inform the
distributor that he needs to pack them better.

Thanks for the comments. It makes sense. I don't know what price the 706
came out as, but what they retail for now. I do know they went up in price
for a while. (I guess the dollar fell).

My first inclination was to say aroung $1300--didn't the 706 hover in
about that range for a while? However, $1500 puts it in the 746PRO price
range, which I don't think they'll want to do. Even $1300 puts it quite a
bit above its competitors in the mobile rig arena. I'm guessing about
$1100--a little higher than the TS-480 series, $300 or so above the
FT-857. It may start out higher, but drop fairly soon.

I was going to bring up this possibility. Also, don't forget that the
receiver has an "R" before the 7000.
My guess is, since ICOM seems to be edging closer to using the same model
designator worldwide, that it will use the same designator here as
elsewhere, although who really knows...? It might end up not being IC-7000
anywhere!

Thanks for the group, guys!

Re: Price of the IC-7000

Buck,

DSP filtering and demodulation/modulation is also used in Ten Tec receivers and transceivers from the $329 RX-320D to the $3300 Orion. DSP filtering is not necessarily better that crystal lattice filtering; it depends the receiver design, on the processing powerof the DSP chip (or chips) and the dynamic range of the A/D converter. The Orion uses more powerful DSP's than the RX-320D. As a matter of fact, the Main receiver of the Orion uses crystal filters for the front end roofing filtering.

The more powerful DSP's are more expensive and consume more power, but the price and power consumption comes down as newer generations of IC's are introduced. It's a tradeoff on price, performance and power dissipation. Let's see what ICOM comes up with...

Re: High Sierra Antennas and the IC-7000.

Keith, you make some good points. When the new one comes out, the older ones should have some great pricing.

I am a Pro3 owner, so this new rig as you said, looks like a mini-Pro3. I need to start saving my pennys for the end of this year.

Re: High Sierra Antennas and the IC-7000.

Keith LaBorde - K4KAL <k4kal@...>
 

Keep in mind!, The 706MKIIG is a proven rig. I have never heard a bad one on the air.
In my case, I own 3 and have never had any problems with them over the past few years.
I started with the 706MKII and eventually sold on eBay and got all MKIIG's.
This new radio has been over due...
It looks like a "Baby PRO-III" from the picture.

This new transceiver will be an opportunity for you go purchase one of those at a reduced price from someone looking to upgrade.
Amateur Radio Clubs, Schools, etc. use them a lot for Field Day and Emergency Gear, so it may also be a good time to Donate them.
I purchased a new one at Dayton last year for $749.00 as a spare, field day radio.
I can remember when the 706MKII came out it was selling for $1395.00
I waited and got mine for $1195.00, then as time went on the IIG came out, and the price hung in the $995.00 range with rebates, etc.

I look forward to seeing the more detail specs on the radio. What is in the PDF file from the Magazine that is on the web just wasn't enough.
We need to keep an eye on the Icom Japan website for updates. They usually go first, and the US lags behind waiting for FCC Compliance.

Running HF Mobile is a lot of fun. Especially if you sit in traffic for long period of time, or drive long distances.
You quickly program the memories for the 40M Nets, and the DX Nets on 15M and 20M.
I have a Digital Voice Recorder that can hold 4 hours on the visor. So I just push the record button and start talking.
Then later, I go back and update the log and send out QSL Cards.

I frequently travel on extended trips, and carry a small generator with me and large power supply.
That way I can find a park or in some cities a high spot where there is a road going up to a water tower to work DX.

Keith, K4KAL

Be aware that ICOM has not yet rolled out it's latest version of the 706MKIIG: it has been announced in France. We'll probably see it this summer or fall here in the states.

Wish it had a 1.2G also.
