Default WTB: Icom IC-R7100 or IC-R7000

Hello,

I am looking for an UNBLOCKED Icom IC-R7100 receiver, or an Icom IC-R7000 receiver. If anyone is considering the sale of one in good condition, please e-mail or PM me. I would like to have some confirmation that the 10.7 MHz IF out is functioning properly, if possible. I would prefer to pay with Paypal. I'm actively searching eBay but I know not everyone here posts items there.

Thanks in advance. E-mail is scott at scancapecod dot us.

I'll make you a good deal on an Icom repair manual (schematics, words, paragraphs, et al) if you score a 7000.

Bad experiences with these radios?

I leave the repairing to Icom. You've never seen me with a soldering iron....I could put an eye out!

I don't think any of the R7100's were blocked ... were they?

Absolutely, and from 800-900 MHz to boot. Icom makes great receivers, but they continue to make U.S. versions with questionable cellular blocks to this day. A current example is the Icom IC-R2500, where the cell block starts at 867 MHz, cutting 2 MHz out of the NPSPAC band. This will be moot when rebanding is over, but it's certainly a chunk of spectrum that I like to monitor.

Default Not for sale, but..

There are two versions of the IC-R7100.
The 7100 was unblocked and the 7100-A was blocked...
But was an easy "fix". Yes, I have both.

Boy I miss that Icom 7100 of mine back in the 90's. Unblocked and had the 0-30Mhz kit purchased overseas installed.. It was awesome indeed.

Sold it for $1200 in 1996.

I thought I did too...and after going through Icom PCR1000's, PCR100's, Tentec RX320's, RX321's, Icom R2500's, and Winradio G305E's, I have finally come to the conclusion that there in my case is no substitute for hands on for my DX'ing. I've got my AOR AR5000A+3 as my main receiver, interfaced with an RFSpace SDR-14 for spectrum analysis. Some of the above were used as secondary receivers, which is what the R7000 will do for me.

Both the R7000 and R7100 can be computer controlled via the CT-17 interface, but I almost certainly won't go that route.

Keep looking on EBay, I caught a cosmetically fair, fine performing 7100 unblocked for under $400. ( but I wasn't working last winter, and had time to look).
Not gonna sell mine.

There is one fella out there (Ebay) who keeps listing the same rig over and over and over. Buyer beware.

These rigs are out there, and you may get lucky, too.

Steve

PS, try some of the amateur forums, too. I've seen used wide band Icoms over there.

If your trolling 5 or 10MHz really slow that big knob sure is fun to spin. I found myself jumping around too much, but that is just me. Have you tried the PowerMate?

I have one. It was probably something hokey on my setup, but I found that it would suddenly stop working. The only "fix" was to unplug/replug. Neat little device though, and certainly one that could be used for many different things.

I had the same problem with the PowerMate just dying using the driver that came with it. I downloaded their v2 driver from their site and this seems to have fixed that problem. But, still testing though.

FYI, the wide FM ceramic filter in the R7100 is replaceable with something in the order of 150 or 110khz and it makes an AWESOME FM DX receiver (no stereo of course). I've got a110khz SNR filter in mine. S meter and continuous tuning ... sweeeet ! I love it.
