Friedrichshafen 2009: Hilberling and Telefunken Racoms PT-8000 launch maybe this year!


PT-8000 New Telefunken HF VHF Transceiver! Hamradio 2009 in Friedrichshafen, the absence of a stand Hilberling, who presented the HF transceiver PT-8000 only with a poster with the distribution indicated by the Telefunken Racoms! One of the sensations at Ham Radio 2009 Friedrichshafen is the co-operation of Hilberling and Telefunken Racoms. So it seems the PT-8000 may be available this year!
Hamradio 2009 di Friedrichshafen DE, assenza di uno stand della Hilberling, che invece presentava il transceiver HF PT-8000 soltanto con un manifesto con indicata la distribuzione da parte di Telefunken Racoms. Questo ha rafforzato le voci e la  sensazione di una co-operazione tra Hilberling e Telefunken Racoms per il PT-8000, che sembrà sarà disponibile  entro questo anno!

IC-7600 video at Dayton 2009 Hamvention: See the demo by VA7OJ’s and Other related Videos


IC-7600 at Dayton 2009 Hamvention. Goods Video! Very nice demo by VA7OJ’s Adam do a great job of highlighting the DSP functionality, and many rx features of the new Icom rig. Thanks Adam, for professional demo on the Icom booth in Dayton 2009.
the Video 1 and other YouTube related videos (click the triangle on the right and 1st logo!)

va7ojIC-7600 alla Hamvention  di Dayton del 15 e 16 Maggio, 2009. Adam ha realizzato due Ottimi due Video su IC-7600!
Una bella dimostrazione di VA7OJ’s, Adam che con il suo impegno e capacità tecniche riesce a dimostrare le funzionalità dei comandi, del DSP, del TFT Display e del Ricevitore.
Guarda da qui i Video: Demo 1 e altri Correlati.  Grazie Adam, per l’ottimo lavoro in stand Icom  in Dayton Hamvention  2009.

An IC-756PRO3 might be replaced by the IC-7600 and it might be release on this coming 2009. Watch the Video from Icom Stand

IC-7600 con l’IC-756Pro3 per un più facile confronto visivo. Seguono alcune informazioni preliminari, che non sono quelle ufficiali, ma notizie generiche dal reparto vendite nello stand di  ICOM alla Ham Fair di Tokyo 2008.
L’IC-756PRO3, presentato a Tokyo nel 2004, dovrebbe essere sostituito dall’IC-7600 che  potrebbe essere rilascio durante il prossimo inverno.  Il prezzo di listino dovrebbe essere della stessa fascia di quello di un IC-756PRO3.  Con una tastiera esterna connessa alla porta USB, l’IC-7600 supporta la modalità digitale come ad esempio RTTY o PSK31 ed anche senza un PC. La funzione del “DW” Doppia Ricezione, sarebbe limitata per ricevere la stessa frequenza e lo stesso modo come nel Pro3. (quale sarà la soluzione adottata in “DW” nel caso di commutazione  dei Roofing Filters stretti per la  banda passante?)  
Questo nuovo transeiver mantiene lo standard C-IV per il remote (vedi mini-jack C-IV sul retro del pannello) oltre alla porta USB sul retro che oltre il remote gestisce i segnali audio impu/ouput per nuove applicazioni software da PC. (come nel IC-7200). In particolare sul retro c’è anche un connettore segnato: X-VERTER, ma anche si vede un mini jack marcato: “METER” (per chi ama vedere lo S-miter analogico c’è un mini jack per uno strumento opzional da collegare esterno)

WATCH the Video from the Icom Booth


ENG: The preliminary information. These are not the official information but the sales rep at the ICOM booth Ham Fair Tokyo 2008.
An IC-756PRO 3 might be replaced by the IC-7600 and it might be release during this coming winter .
The list price might be the same price range of an IC-756PRO 3. With an external keyboard (USB port), the IC-7600 supports a digital mode such as a RTTY and PSK31, even without a PC. It might have the limited DW Dual Receive function for the same frequency and same mode (Performance in “DW ” reduced due to roofing filter width?) The transceive maintains the standard C-IV, see mini jack “remote” on the back panel.  In addition there is the rear USB port (feature is the same as the IC-7200 CI-V and audio input-output  for PC); 
The rear panel connectors, X-verter, but also what looks like a 3,5 mm. mini-jack marked “METER” for optional analog  S-miter.
