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.

IC-9100 update the Firmware Version V.E1 of April, 2012 – Checking Version on your rtx – The NPR Testing of many HF Receivers by VA7OJ, Adam (latest NPR updated in March, 2013) see link below – QST reviews IC-9100 on April, 2012 by WW3DE, see the summary key 14MHz below - RS-BA1® remote control system … really cool stuff and Linck, Video and more.
IC-9100 Checking the Version installed – (idem for the IC-7410)
1) – Press and hold [F4] and [F5] while turning [ON] the IC-9100 – (idem for the IC-7410) 2) – Do NOT release [F4] and [F5] until you have READ the Version results (3) 3) – Results will appear at the bottom of the display
Results for latestV.E1 - F: 3.01-000 = Front (currently no updates) - M: 3.42-E00 = Main (currently no updates) - DM: 3.03 <00> = DSP Main (Previous version should read 3.02) - DS: 3.04 <00> = DSP Sub (Previous version should read 3.03) – (!! Read the Icom information)
[Note] for the IC-7410 HF/50MHz is NOT granted any firmware, for now
The IC-9100 Firmware V.E1 has just been posted 13/3/2012. – This upgrade is applied from a PC via the rear-panel [USB B] port. – The IC-9100’s firmware can be updated if desired. By updating the firmware, new function(s) can be added and performance can be improved. – This capability ends months of speculation: “Is it or isn’t it?” - - See the Utility Link, the QST Review, the latest NPR rx Testing (3/2013) by VA7OJ and RS-BA1 remote control … below !
IC-9100 la Versione V.E1 del Firmware è disponibile dal 13/03/2012.
Con questo terminano le incertezze e le voci varie, sì l’IC-9100 ha il suo Firmware aggiornabile!
Come verificare la Versione del Firmware nell’IC-9100 e IC-7410: vedere comandi riportati più sopra; – I dati identificativi dell’ultima Versione E1 rilascita da ICOM Inc. solo per l’IC-9100, ove già installata a bordo oppure dopo aver fatto l’aggiornamento, apparirano sulla parte bassa del Display con una serie di valori (vedere più sopra) - [Nota] Per l’IC-7410 non risultano ancora aggiornamenti ad oggi – (NB: Informarsi tramite tutte le news ufficiali di Icom!)
Il firmware del IC-9100 può essere aggiornato, se uno lo desidera, tramite un PC e via porta [USB-B] sul pannello posteriore. Con l’aggiornamento del firmware, naturalmente, possono essere aggiunte nuove funzioni e migliorate le prestazioni via, via da parte del costruttore. -
[Note]: A USB cable type A-B is required. - Please read Icom “Firmware update instructions” PDF
Noise Power Ratio (NPR) Testing of HF Receivers – Using notched noise to evaluate dynamic receiver performance – (…. To put the impact of the NPR test into perspective, a -9 dBm Ptot level at 5.6 MHz BRF is equivalent to 1200 simultaneous SSB signals at -43 dBm each, i.e. S9 + 30 dB!) etc. etc…. by Adam Farson, VA7OJ/AB4OJ- (!! updated in March, 2013 – see the link below)
Con il Test NPR Adam, dimostra che il generatore di rumore bianco immette un segnale a banda larga che carica tutti gli stati del ricevitore, il Front-end, i Filtri e l’eventuale Preselettore, simulando la risposta alla ricezione di multi-segnali del DUT (come in realtà succede collegandovi un’antenna). – Il rumore bianco viene rimosso alla frequenza sintonizzata del ricevitore da un adatto filtro notch, inserito in serie. – A causa della distorsione dei circuiti del ricevitore (DUT imput), questa tacca (notch) tende a riempirsi con prodotti di intermodulazione, i cui effetti verranno oppurtunamente misurati in uscita (DUT output).

- From this review forward, we will include RMDR in the Key Measurements Summary. Reciprocal Mixing Testing: What Is It?
You may notice two new color bars in the “Key Measurements Summary” at the top of this review. These are for Reciprocal Mixing Dynamic Range (RMDR), with measurements at 20 and 2 kHz spacing. …….omissis …….. Reciprocal mixing is noise generated in a superheterodyne receiver when noise from the local oscillator (LO) mixes with strong, adjacent signals.
RS-BA1® Remote control system (QST… Now for the Really Cool Stuff )
An RS-BA1® remote control system consists of at least one PC, which is used as a Base station (Server) and at least one PC, which is used as a Remote station (Client). Both PCs have to be connected with a network and VAC. The Icom USB driver must be installed.
