I definitely have to agree here!
 
I have a 7000 plus a 2720, LDG tuner, and
Samlex 1235 power supply all mounted in a
"music case" transport box.  Operated on a
picnic table under a shelter at Field Day
last year with ambient temps up around 95F
or more and the 7000's temp readout never
got out of the blue area!

Oh for pete sakes when will that stupid myth die? there is and never has been an overheating issue ! This all started because a few morons mounted their 7000 in zero clearance enclosures and preceded to run high duty cycle modes. 

Icom really screwed themselves by including a temperature display on the 7000 apparently hams aren't nearly as technically competent as they thought

"Good luck at that price. With the IC-7300 now available at not much more than your price, 
I think folk would rather opt for the IC-7300"

Does the 7300 now include VHF and UHF all mode ? Last time I checked the 7300 was HF only and if that's still the case then you really can't compare these two rigs.

At this point I think the IC-7100 and the 991 are the only real competition for the 7000. Now I had a chance to evaluate a 7100 for 3 months and a 991 for about a month and all I can say is I'm glad I kept my 7000 because you couldn't pry it out of my hands if it meant going to either one of those rigs. 

 Sure the 7000 has it's issues and Icom could have done a few things better. Unfortunately neither the 7100 nor the 991 address these issues.  In fact they bring in a whole new dimension of issues and oversights. 
I wish someone would come up with a decent satellite rig that won't bankrupt you.  Right now even though I have an FT847 I more often than not use two computer controlled 7000's for satellite work. 

I've seen several used ProIII's sell for over $1700 in the past month  So while $1200 for a used 7000 might seem steep right now it might not be in the very near future,

I love the Internet and the things it can do for us.  But I think generally it has turned us from being a nation of seekers into a nation of askers.  I don't know how many times on other venues, I've see someone ask a really simple question of a group, when taking just 30 seconds of their own time on Google would return all the answers they were looking for.  Sorry for the rag, but so many people now want to take from others before they even try doing for themselves first (and I'm not alluding to this group, which is rather specialized). It has been a major shift in attitude that extends well beyond the current subject.  What's going to happen when that big solar CME happens and knocks all this stuff out, permanently?  It has happened before, in 1859, when about the only electrical infrastructure in existence was the telegraph.

Re: Internal battery

roeland jansen
 

there uis no need to replace the battery --- it's extremely easy to replace. It's no SMD stuff. It's really easy.


Re: [IC-7000] Available

grif80128@...
 

I appreciate the comments on price. I'm still looking at other sales to stay in the ball park for price. Just toured Ebay (no IC-7000s this morning and QRZ where a couple were mentioned.) If you're looking for an IC-7000, I suggest you do the same. Find the rig you want at the price you want and do your thing. By all means, if you want "new box" smell/thrill, go that route. Enjoy your IC-7300s. Hope they meet all your expectations. Jim


Internal battery

Rick
 

The time-of-day clock on my IC-7000 resets whenever I cycle the power. I believe this is because the internal battery has failed. I know it is a small surface mount device, which is tricky to replace.

Does anyone know if I really need to replace the battery? I don't care if the clock works or not, but could the dead battery cause any other problem in my rig?

Thanks, Rick K0XB

Maybe the 7300 has an LED backlit screen and it is not keeping all the VHF/UHF circuits alive.

The IC-7300 draws only 0.9 A on receive. That is a biggie for the guys that operate portable

can draw almost twice as much current as the IC-7300 with a much larger more vibrant display.
It’s obviously the circuitry that is drawing all this power.
However, there will always remain a demand for the IC-7000, for use in a mobile - I wouldn’t
want any other currently available rig in my mobile.
But, it has lost a lot of demand due to the IC-7300, from the ops wanting a portable or small

When the IC-7300 got a release date, I sold two of my IC-7000’s before their price would
