Since last weekend I’m the proud owner of an Icom IC-7700. This rig is a trade-in of the first owner who bought an Icom IC-7850. Hamshop.nl offered me the chance to test the rig a few days – in particular the filtering – to see how it handles the PowerLine noise caused by my neighbors.
The results are superb! Half of the noise is cancelled with the Digital PreSelector. The other half with the noise blanker. Weak stations which I could not hear before are workable now. Compared to the Icom IC-9100 all-in-one this is soooo much better.
The Icom IC-9100 will be dedicated for VHF and UHF now.
