Hi all, this weekend will be the first contest this year for me, and whats special about it, It will also be the first contest with my new IC-7300!.
Today the 10th of July I have worked about 10hrs nonstop with this little gem.
I can really say it is holding up great!, excellent reception all across the crowded bands..
My favorite thing in contests Is poking out the weaker stations between the loud stations.
Comparing this experience with my Pro3 is WOW, I have absolutely less problems getting the weak stations out.
What is also great about this radio, is the REALTIME spectrum scope/waterfall.. this gives a totally other dimension compared to other radio’s I have worked with, like the IC-756Pro3/FT-2000/IC-7700/IC-7800 I have worked with in the past. The are somewhat not realtime.
This realtime scope gives you a complete new fealing working DX and Contests.
Bed time now, up to the next shift early tomorrow!
