ID-7200 Digital modes
How to get the IC-7200 up and running on the digital modes
The latest IF DSP technology is employed in the IC-7200. While
the IC-7200 is an entry-class transceiver, advanced digital
features are comparable to higher class transceivers.
AGC loop management
Distortion and blocking from strong nearby signals are prevented
by placing DSP functions inside the AGC loop. The AGC time
constants are selectable from fast, slow and off for each
Digital IF filter
Optional filters will never be required for the IC-7200. The
built-in digital filter allows you to flexibly select the filter
width and shape from soft and sharp* and provides cutting-edge
*Filter shape is selectable for SSB and CW
Manual notch filter
The manual notch filter delivers more than 70dB of attenuation.
Strong interring tones will be eliminated without adversely
affecting the AGC loop performance. ON the bottom right of the
front panel, a dedicated control knob adjusts the notch filter
Digital Twin PBT
Only Icom brings you twin passband tuning! Tailor your IF
passband with the Twin PBT by electronically shifting the upper
and lower edges of the IF filter. Depending on the use of the concentric
knobs, you can either narrow the IF passband, or shift the entire passband
to eliminate interfering signals.
Digital noise reduction
The digital noise reduction reduces background noise and
improves the signal-to-noise ratio. The noise reduction level is
adjustable in 16 steps. It improves the readability of voice and
Digital noise blanker
The noise blanker reduces pulse-type noise such as engine
ignition and sparking. The NB level and width (blanking
duration) are adjustable in 100 steps.
High stability transmitter
DDA (Direct Digital Synthesizer) creates a clear, clean transmit
signal and improves the C/N ratio. With a dual-fan cooling
system, the IC-7200 provides stable high quality output even
during high duty cycle operation.
USB port for PC control
The IC-7200 can be controlled by a PC through a USB port using
the CI-V data format. In addition, modulator and received audio
can also be transferred over the USB cable. By using appropriate
external software, you can record incoming calls and/or transmit
preprogrammed messages from your PC.

RF speech compressor
The digital RF speech compressor increases your average talk
power in SSB mode. Even when the compression level is increased,
the DSP controlled RF speech compressor provides low distortion
CW mode operation
Full break-in, selectable CW carrier point (USB or LSB) and
adjustable CW pitch are also standard.
Tough construction against water intrusion*
Waterproof protection technologies that are used in Icom's
marine radios are applied to the buttons and knobs on the front
panel to provide a measure of protection against water
*IC-7200 is not waterproof.
Rugged design for outdoor use
The rugged design of the IC-7200 means your enjoyment of this
rig is not limited to your shack only.
The "rear bumper" protects various connectors on the rear panel
and lets you stand the radio on its rear end when the antenna is
disconnected, such as while moving or packing the radio.
