Great news Icom 7610 new firmware is here!!

After many IC 7610 Icom owners had seen the 7300 series radio receive a firmware upgrade some time ago Icom has just released a firmware update for the IC 7610! The upgrade is outlined below: 

Changes from Version 1.20

 [Spectrum scope is improved]

-A Scroll mode that can seamlessly change the displayed scope range, depending on the operating frequency, is added.

- A popup screen that displays when SPAN or EDGE is selected is added.

- The number of FIX EDGE memories is expanded to 4.

- The Reference level is independently memorized for each band.

- The Reference level of the Center mode scope screen while transmitting is fixed at set level independent of the user’s selection.

- The Scope function of the RS-BA1  is improved.


[Other changes]

-The transceiver’s settings are now retained after updating the firmware. (not when reverting to an older version)

-While operating in the Data mode, the Receive Tone Control is deactivated.

-The default setting of the CI-V USB Port is changed to “Unlink from [REMOTE].”

-The RS-BA1 Version 2 software will support the IC-7610's Scroll mode from its firmware Version 2.40.

Below is the link to the firmware update:


  1. Wish I'd never sold my 7610. I'd swap my 101D for a 7610 in a heartbeat.

    1. Good morning Tom very nice to hear from you, I have done the same at this end.....selling a radio and then looking back and wished I could reverse things!
      Oh, well hindsight is 20/20 they say,
