• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Icom: Icom IC-7100

Not a bad idea. I'll give it a try! I guess that's why Icom integrates those functions (plus squelch) into one double knob.

Its surprisingly good for the price. Looking at the 2Khz spaced close dynamic range, ARRL labs tested it at 84dB, which is not bad. That rates somewhere between a Yaesu FTDX-3000 and an Icom R-9500 for comparison, both much more expensive radios. Its a very nice receiver in general use and things like the DSP and noise blanker work well.

Can anyone who has or had a 7100 comment on the receiver? Is it good, bad or mediocre?
