As explained in a previous article, we have been working on enhancing our Remote Control Ham Station system. The upgrades include additional remote client options, better remote networking via the Internet, and better integration with our microHAM system.

The new IC-7610 Transceiver is the much-anticipated dual-receive version which uses Icom’s SDR platform that was first available in the IC-7300. The source page has some useful photos and a block diagram of the receiver.
The new radio will also have a connection to an external display. This is a great addition as it makes the excellent panadapter capability in Icom’s SDR platform much easier to view and use.
The rear panel includes connectors for two antennas. There are BNC jacks for connection of a separate receive antenna and/or a Transverter. Also included is an Ethernet interface for remote control and USB interfaces for connection to a local computer.
