After many IC 7610 Icom owners had seen the 7300 series radio receive a firmware upgrade some time ago Icom has just released a firmware update for the IC 7610! The upgrade is outlined below: 

Changes from Version 1.20

 [Spectrum scope is improved]

-A Scroll mode that can seamlessly change the displayed scope range, depending on the operating frequency, is added.

- A popup screen that displays when SPAN or EDGE is selected is added.

- The number of FIX EDGE memories is expanded to 4.

- The Reference level is independently memorized for each band.

- The Reference level of the Center mode scope screen while transmitting is fixed at set level independent of the user’s selection.

- The Scope function of the RS-BA1  is improved.


[Other changes]
