IC-7100 Quad-band Transeiver – Icom Co. Inc. released a new firmware E5 for the IC-7100 to resolve Low SSB Modulation issue. – Update 15/1/2016 the firmware have been updated: CPU M to Version 1.11 / DSP I to Version 1.03.
Icom IC-7100 Firmware E5 Improvements (Icom official web-page)
• The power meter’s visibility is improved.
• The speech compressor function is improved.
[Note] You must install the USB driver before connecting the USB cable between the IC-7100 and the PC (!read more official istructions)
improved visibility of the power meter as it appears they reduced the speed at which it swings and gave more dwell time for the peak indicator in the LCD Display bar-graf. – Icom tweaked default speech compression a bit to boost average power output–
Video by DL6KA of 25/1/2016 the IC-7100 average output power with new software update “E5”

RS-BA1 IP Remote Control Software Icom Update Ver. 1.80, Enhanced Functions and Features – Now the high- resolution spectrum scope with waterfall function can be observed on the RS-BA1 (1.80) for a single band on only the IC-7850 and IC-7851 – You must have a previous version of the RS-BA1 software installed BEFORE you can update to version 1.80.
In addition to the conventional tuning knob controls, some items can be adjusted with slider controls (see pictur above) The slider controls provide visual and fine adjustment within the the function’s range.
The background color of the remote controller screen has been changed from gray to black. Its muted black background and one-colored icons provide better visibility. [Note] When you use the RS-BA1 with a USB 3.0 device, you must use a USB 3.0 drive.
La Ver. 1.80 è compatibile con IC-7850 e 7851 Firmware V1.10, e qui offre una nuova importante funzione per un analizzatore di spettro e waterfall visibile a distanza nella console del PC di controllo remoto (client) (solo per una singola banda) – Icom assicura che è compatibile, solo per il resto, con IC-7700 V.2.00; IC-7800 V3.10, IC-7600 V2.00 e IC-7100 V.1.10 (e i loro successori) – Si scarica da Icom Global e funziona solo per chi ha già installato una delle versioni precedenti di RS-BA1, che si acquista con un codice riservato.

Thanks to the Internet, hams !!! now have the ability to remotely operate any station at any distance – all without the complication and limitation of RF linking or a big anetnna farms, hi! – Maybe you have a well-equipped home station and you’d like to share your good fortune with some of your friends via overIP ADSL Internet. Or, perhaps you are a ham living under onerous restrictions and you’d like to establish a remote station so that you can finally get on the air!
This has created a boon in remote station control, making it possible for hams to continue enjoying their hobby regardless of where they live. Among professionals this is known as Radio over IP or RoIP. — (IC-7200 only for vision!)

Icom IC-7851 vs IC-7800 upgrade modelv.3.00 Phase Noise Characteristics and RMDR (Reciprocal Mixing Dinamic Range) Characteristics in Receive Mode, data and pictures taken by videos of Icom Japan (see info and… lincks below).
Icom IC-7800, IC-7700, IC-7600 and IC-7100 Upgrade 21/5/2015 – New CI-V commands for External Antenna Controller & Logging Software and Other Features – (Linck to: Icom New Release ENG .pdf)
Phase Noise Characteristics in Receive Mode: Measuring conditions: Receiving Frquency 14.200 MHz, Mode CW, 1st LO frequency 78.655 MHz (1st IF 64.455 MHz Supereterodina up-convertion type)
The IC-7851 employs a new Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) along with a Phase Locked Oscillator for the LO – ICOM writes: breaking the boundaries of traditional designs.
IC-7851 v IC-7800 ver. 3.00 the RMDR Characteristics Measuring conditions: BW 250 Hz, Roofing Filter 15 kHz!
See the video below: 1st step: a weak CW signal is received, 2nd: a strong signal is receiver on the same frequency, 3td step: move generator distance from center frequency: 100Hz / 200Hz/… 2kHz / 10kHz etc. (the CW signal cannot be eard or be clearly eard again) …What a difference. Impressive! (…thanks to jboyd00 for the his many videos)
Icom’s engineers focused on a new Local Oscillator (LO) in the IC-7851′ that drastically reduces the phase noise. As a result of this design, the purity of the LO achieves a Reciprocal Mixing Dynamic Range (RMDR) of 110dB!
Icom IC-7851/7800 LO C/N Characteristics Comparison Measuring conditions: Receiveng fre 14.200 MHz, Mode CW, Center at 1st LO fre 78.655 MHz, SPAN 20 kHz, RBW 30 Hz, VBW 10Hz (Att 30 dB)

Support, Japan of 14.01.2014: Now there is an Firmware update Revision E2 for the IC-7100 Transceiver – See the link below for Icom download page, and also to the Icom Upgrade Instruction (ENG) pdf. – Before upgrade save the transceiver’s data onto an SD card or to your PC using the Icom CS-7100 cloning software.
[Note] A mini-B type USB cable is required. – You must install the USB driver before connecting the USB cable between the IC-7100 and the PC. – Before downloading the driver, please thoroughly read the USB driver installation guide

[Note] It is absolutely essential that the antenna is connected to an effective and stabile RF GROUND POINT – A coaxial cable and a control cable are supplied with the tuning antenna. – A ground strap is provided on the base of the tuning antenna to ensure a rliable connection with the vehicle’s metalwork.
NVIS Stands for Near Vertical Incidence Skywave The NVIS radio-wave propagation provides usable signals between groundwave and skywave distances. (between 50 and 650 km; 30 and 400 miles) – The radio waves from the antenna travel upwards into the ionosphere, and then are refracted back down in a circular area. –
A properly designed Near Vertical Incident Skywave (NVIS) antenna will have a directivity pattern that will maximize transmission and reception at high angles while rejecting low angle, long range noise. – Red more by link below

IC-7100 User Evalutation and Full Test Report plus IC-7100/IC-7000 Feature Comparison by VA7OJ, Adam. (! see link +below!) – See the Video demo by GØTAN Engineering staf at ML&S Ltd UK (link +below) – I think that hams using D-STAR will find it a nice addition to their base or mobile setups for DV (digital-voice & data) mode on the 28MHz, 50MHz and VHF UHF bands. (!… danger mobile radio: keeping your eyes on the road!) – See the pictures, video and more below.
The IC-7100 display contrast ratio is also quite nice. I wish it had a color screen as some others have noted. I don’t think much is missed by not having a color screen, as there’s no information displayed that twould benefit from color. The display resistive touch screen is easy operation!
IC-7100 User Evalutatio & Full Test Report by VA7OJ, Adam (!a report of 48 pages)
This Report describes the evaluation of IC-7100 (S/N 02001352) from a user perspective. – Appendix 1) is a comparison of IC-7100 and IC-7000 features in tabular form. – Appendix 2) presents results of an RF lab test suite performed on the radio. Adam also writes: “I was able to spend a few days with the IC-7100 in my ham-shack, and thus had the opportunity to exercise the radio’s principal features and evaluate its on-air behavior”. – (thanks to Adam).
Il Reportdi ben 48 pagine in pdf, descrive ampie valutazioni come utente dell’IC-7100 (S/N 02001352 US version) – Nell’Appendice 1) vengono comparate, in forma di tabulato, le caratteristiche principali del IC-7100 e del precedente IC-7000 – Nell’Appendice 2) sono presentati ampi risultati delle misure e dei vari test nel laboratorio RF di Adam sul nuovo transceiver Icom. – Adam scrive anche: “Sono riuscito a trascorrere alcuni giorni con questo IC-7100 nella mia “baracca” di radioamatore, quindi ho avuto la possibilità di provare le caratteristiche principali della radio e valutarne il comportamento On-air” (Grazie ad Adam per l’interessante recensione).
The DR key accesses a D-STAR repeater setup menu, facilitating D-Star service configuration. The DR mode is the “enhanced” user interface for VHF/UHF D-STAR operation. For HF D-STAR, or for those more accustomed to the basic D-STAR operation, simply selecting DV will give access to the D-STAR digital mode.

The IC-7800 (Upgrade model Ver.3.00) has built-in RS-BA1 base station function. Base station PC is not required (Ethernet cable CI-V+audio) – The IC-7800 (upgrade model) or new IC-7100 can wake-up from standby mode via the RS-BA1.
Radios are physically connected to the Base station, and the Remote station can operate the radios through the network. In the remote control system, CI-V commands, control commands such as “Connect” and “Disconnect,” and audio are exchanged between a Base station and a Remote station, through their Remote Utilities.
Most functions and modes of your transceiver, including interference rejection functions and IF filter settings, can be controlled. Also, S-meter and SWR can be observed – Rx Voice recording function available and more.
