Introducing the new Icom IC-7410 HF/6M base station
Icom UK are pleased to announce the launch of the IC-7410 Amateur Radio base station.
The new IC-7410 from Icom has been designed as a specialised HF/6M transceiver sporting excellent performance and features and brings superior DSP speed and capability to a rig that’s priced and designed for everyday use.
The IC-7410 employs a high grade DSP unit and double conversion super-heterodyne system developed from the latest technology found in Icom rigs including the IC-7600, IC-7700 and IC-7800 series.
In addition, the Icom IC-7410 HF/6M Base Station Transceiver has a built-in 15kHz 1st IF filter and can accept up to two optional filters (3kHz/6kHz). When operated with these 1st IF filters, narrow mode signals such as the CW and SSB modes are protected from adjacent and unwanted strong signal interference. Like the IC-7600, the IC-7410 features an impressive +30dBm third-order intercept point (IP3) in 14MHz.
Today’s Amateurs often combines the capabilities of a transceiver with a PC to maximize operating speed, efficiency and enjoyment. The IC-7410 comes with a standard type B USB connector on its back panel. Modulation input, audio output, RTTY demodulator output and CIV command can be controlled via the USB cable. Also, a conventional CI-V remote control jack is built in to the IC-7410.
The IC-7410 is ruggedly built, with an impressive, one-piece cast aluminium heat sink to efficiently dissipate heat. A high stability TCXO crystal oscillator provides ±0.5ppm of high frequency stability over a wide temperature range (0°C to +50°C). The IC-7410 is available from Monday 11th April 2011 at a suggested retail price of £1999.99 (inc.VAT) and is available from authorised Icom Amateur Radio dealers.
