Icom IC-7300

The radio


My two cents

As my first radio, I never used it that much as I should probably have. I went on portable operation a few times, mostly to check out an antenna setup that I could use from within my car.

Sooner or later I decided that the radio was too big and too heavy to carry it into the field (and with field I mean the mountains in my region).

I do not have a “shack” at home, I never installed a decent antenna (system) at my home because of the high noise floor that I have here, I thought it would be fun to operate portable in the field, but the IC-7300 is probably not the choice for that, I think.
