Yes but, you can buy a new IC-7100 for well under $1,000. That is a comparable rig. Your dreaming to think the price of the IC-7000 will go up at some point in the future. I have a IC-765, IC-7000, IC-775DSP and a IC-7100. None of these rigs have or will increase in value with age. New technology will make them obsolete and out dated. A perfect example is, I have a friend who traded me for a FT-100(non D). His thoughts were, it can only go up in value. He never even used it to keep it pristine. When it was discovered the VHF/UHF final was on longer available, I begged him to sell it quickly, wouldn’t do it. Here it is years later and all he does is whine about how he was ripped off. Still trying to sell it at it’s original new price.

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 also agree with your statement. I did do the fan mod which lets the rig operate at a even lower temperature. I have had long QSO’s and the worst case scenario was still in the blue area. The Myth just won’t die off for the reason that has been stated, non technical hams that fear even taking the case off a radio. We have a great deal of appliance operators today. They push a button and say, ” Oh, look at me, I’m high tech”. Really? It’s a shame that they have no desire to learn the insides of their equipment. This service/hobby allows us to do that. Experiment and modify our equipment, as long as it stays within the FCC rules, to the needs of the moment.

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

I bought a 7300 two weeks ago to replace my 7000, which I used as a base station for four years. Never had a lick of trouble with the 7000. I am now in the process of installing the 7000 in my car. Worked 275 (and 7 band DXCC) countries on SSB with wire antennas during those 4 years. The 7000 is a great rig, but I love my new 7300.

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.

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

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.
