ICOM IC-7300 -- New Radio!

As is typical for me, I start a blog and then forget to keep adding timely updates. So, now it's been over two years and I finally add something new.

I added an Icom IC-7300 HF transceiver to my station about a week ago and I'm having a lot of fun with it. It's a pretty cool piece of hardware -- an SDR inside an enclosure that looks much like any conventional Ham transceiver of the last twenty years.

I've got it working with Ham Radio Deluxe but, here in Minnesota, ARES prefers Fldigi. I like Fldigi, it performs well, is not'bloatware' like HRD, and the price is right (free!). I had it working for about a minute, then it stopped. I haven't been able to get it working since then. I've been researching on the internet, found some good info about setup for the IC-7300 and Fldigi. So far it's still not working. I'll have to take a step backwards and verify that it still works with HRD. I'll figure it out pretty soon. I always do.
