Not much to say that hasn't already been said. The radio is an awesome piece of kit and the very fact that the head is so compact and can be placed virtually anywhere is an absolute bonus. Yes, it can be pushed around with a heavy hand, but a wee bit of Blutak sorts that out in a flash. If you don't have much room in the shack or the Station Manager is sick of big rigs everywhere, this is the one for you. The touch-screen menu system is amongst the most intuitive I've ever come across. Love it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
ICOM 7100
I bought the radio 10 months ago and as usual the service from M Lynch was super. The radio on the UHF and VHF bands give me excellent audio reports and the power output is exactly what is claimed. The receive side of the UHF/VHF bands on received signals is slightly down on my FDM400 and par with my 20 years old Yaesu FT8900 which is a little dissapointing. On H.F. the radio performs very well on both TX and RX. I cant get used to the head unit at all as it is so easy to knock it and move it when using the controls. If you ask me if after using it for 10 months would I still buy it my answer would be NO and I would probably go for the IC7300. The preamp on VHF and UHF increases the noise far more than the signal so I find it better to leave off all the time. If you are intersted in one I suggest trying to find a local amateur owner to let you try it on air first. Ken G3SPX
IC7100 User Review
I bought my IC7100 from Tony at ML&S and I've not been disappointed! First class transceiver with all-band operation, high sensitivity and D-Dstar /DV features, as well as useful GPS, Voice Recorder, Memo, SD Card and full control of RF output and Mic gain. Superlative sensitivity across all bands and absolutely cracking audio in all modes. As a discerning user, I would highly recommend this unit as a great all-rounder. Fantastic service from ML&S!
Icom 7100
thank you Richard for recommending this radio, for my set up here at home, I have found the 7100 to be one of the best radio's I have ever owned, totally love it, easy to use, all menu's very easy to action and the receive and transmit quality is very good, any one looking for a new radio should take a very close look at the Icom 7100 I can't praise it enough.
Icom 7100 - Outstanding!
Firstly, I have been a fan of Yaesu for as long as I can remember but having had a loan of an Icom 7100 for a few days, it was a no brainer to get one. The general ease of use is excellent. Far better than I thought it was going to be. The menu system is very easy to use and if you want a radio that does everything, this is the one for you. It performance on HF is excellent. Coupled with the ability to work on 4m, 2m and 70cm, it really is an excellent choice of radio for someone looking for "shack in a box" that takes up very little real estate on the bench. The sound quality is exceptional, along with the option of changing received audio. It just works. And I mean that it just does everything flawlessly. An excellent choice if you want a no nonsense, easy to use radio that will give years of service. The look of the radio takes a bit of getting used to, but believe me, it's a cracking radio in all respects and certainly glad I forked out the dosh to buy. To sum it up in one word: Outstanding!
I was reluctant to buy this radio, I'm a 'Yaesu Man'. Was going to wait for the Yaesu FT-991 but with DStar and 4m I decided to bite the bullet. My main radio is an FTdx-3000 so I purchased the IC-7100 mainly for V/UHF. I have to say from the ads I did not like the look of it, a face only a mother could love and it was a serious reason for my not wanting one. Now it's on my desk I love it, it's compact, well laid out with a sharp, functional display, I've fallen in love. V/UHF performance is adequate, not quite as sensitive as my FT8900 but not far off. With the pre-amp in I get an S 3-4 noise level on 2m, I remember the same on my old IC-7400. Not really an issue though, turn off the pre-amp. I work the local repeaters no issue, some of which are on an S 2-3. I get great audio reports from everyone. Not tried D-Star as there is no coverage near me. Upon receipt I set it all up, programmed 250 memories and used the various Rx functions without opening the manual, very intuitive to use and no endless sub menus. I didn't buy it for HF use but I have to say I'm stunned. It's not even in the same ball park as IC706, 7000, 7400, 746, FT 857, 847, TS2000 etc. which I have owned. It is awesome, side by side with my FT-3000 I'm not sure I need the 3000 anymore ! Okay, so as signals drop and noise rises the FT-3000 stands out but there was nothing I couldn't hear on the 7100 that the 3000 heard and at 5/9 there was no noticeable difference. If you can only afford one radio to cover 160 to 70 then there is nothing that comes close. Mine came with the HM151 which gets great reports despite some of the negative reviews, a Martin Lynch also threw in an SP35L which really brings out the audio, I'm amazed that such a small speaker performs so well (mind you it weighs as much as a house brick). Only downside for me is that you can scan only one bank at a time, I'd like to scan all or have a bank link option. I'm not easily impressed but this radio really is amazing. Like I said, stunned. Thanks to Lynch's for the great service as always.
Ordered Monday arrived Tuesday brilliant. Now getting my head round it , and for me thats not easy . Need to figure out how to use my SSTV with it , and one or two other things . Apart from my shortcomings a brilliant rig . Well happy !
Excellent Rig for the money everything for everyone
The CW and QRP perspective (GU3TUX)
First impressions are very positive. I easily got the set up and running without reference to the manual. Familiarity with the IC-703 and 706 and your informative video about the 7100 no doubt helped, though. Being an iPad user also means that the set's touch screen does not present any problems. I find that I am most successful in activating the pads using my little finger rather than the index digit. Just a few highlights from my short experience.... CW QSK is very good. I wondered at first if I was actually transmitting when I operated the key as the switching is so clean. The keying relays are not particularly noisy. The NR action on CW is very effective indeed and actually lifts the signal out of the noise with little degradation. This is much better than any similarly priced rig I have used in recent times. The touch screen makes the operating controls easily accessible vs the rather convoluted system of the 703 and 706. The inability to access the 5MHz and 70MHz bands other than through the general coverage button is overcome by setting up frequencies/modes from both bands into memory. Indeed, I have always found that the best way of band changing on these rigs (703/706) is to memorise, say, a CW and an SSB frequency for each of the bands you regularly use and just use the memories as a band switch. The memories and memory banks could not be easier to use and have instant access by front panel controls. My only comment is that it might be helpful to have a separate memory/VFO button or on screen pad rather than the current location in menu 1. I was also impressed by the AF output which seems totally free from digital buzzes and crackling, particularly at low levels, even when using headphones. Also, minimum volume = zero audio - so often not the case with other rigs. The RF power output control being calibrated in percentage of maximum available on the band in use is, for me, a new concept. This obliges you to remember the maximum for each band and then do the arithmetic. There could be errors.... Checking on HF suggests that selecting 5 per cent does in fact give 5W, the QRP limit. I'll leave it to Peter Hart to carry out a more detailed analysis. The RX performance seems entirely adequate for my needs, but it will be interesting to hear it under contest conditions. Again, Peter Hart will make a competent analysis. VHF sensitivity seems good and I can hear the GB3BAA beacon on 4m using just a 50MHz dipole in the loft.
