Coming Soon!

The SDR Everyone Wants

Faint signals are no longer a challenge for DXers and Contesters around the world, with the new IC-7610. The difference between putting the QSO in the log or trying another time is the capability of your receiver. The high performance RMDR in the IC-7610 has the ability to pick out the faintest of signals even in the presence of stronger, adjacent signals. The IC-7610 introduces dual RF direct sampling receivers. Achieving 100dB RMDR, these receivers rival that of other top-of-the-line transceivers. The IC-7610 also comes with a high-speed, high-resolution, real-time spectrum scope on a 7-inch color display.

Output power:

100W (25W AM)

RX Frequencies:


Receiver type:

  Direct sampling

RF direct sampling system

The IC-7610 employs an RF direct sampling system, where RF signals directly convert to digital data and then processed by the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array). This process reduces distortion that naturally occurs in the various mixer stages found in traditional superhetrodyne receivers.

The RF Direct Sampling System in the IC-7610 is capable of 110 dB* RMDR. This performance gives you the ability to pull weak signals out of the noise of strong adjacent signals. There is a difference you can actually hear as the desired signal comes out of the pileup!
* Representative value at 2 kHz frequency separation (Received frequency: 14.2 MHz, Mode: CW, IF BW: 500 Hz)

RMDR characteristics

IC-7610 RDMR charecteristics

Independent dual receiver

Whether listening to both sides of DX station running split, or looking for a multiplier on a different band or mode, the dual receivers in the IC-7610 have you covered. Two separate DIGI-SEL preselectors, two separate Band Pass Filter networks, feed two separate A/D converters into the FPGA.

Dual receiver

IC-7610 Dual Receiver

Dual Digi-Sel

The DIGI-SEL preselectors are RF filters with sharp, narrow passband characteristics preventing Analog-to-Digital Converter overflow from large out-of-band signals when sampling the RF signals. Additionally the third and higher order IMD components are reduced. This is ideal when strong signals are received in a contest pile-up or from broadcast stations on adjacent frequencies or bands.

Large color touch screen

The large 7” color TFT touch LCD offers intuitive operation of functions, settings, and various operational visual aids such as dual spectrum scope aligned vertically or horizontally, simulated analog meters and RTTY, PSK31/63 mode decoded messages.

The combination of the touch screen and the multi-dial knob offers quick and smooth operation. When you push the multi-dial knob, menu items are shown on the right side of the display. You can select an item by touching the screen and can adjust the levels by turning the multi-dial knob.

HRO is pleased to announce the introduction of Yaesu's new C4FM/FM V/UHF Dual Band 5W Handheld Transceiver - FT-70DR. The new FT-70DR is the compact and very attractively priced YAESU System Fusion transceiver; both the conventional FM operation and the advanced C4FM Digital mode are available.

The FT-70DR provides up to 5W of reliable RF power, and its large Front Speaker delivers 700mW Loud Audio Output. C4FM has better BER (Bit Error Rate) characteristics than other digital modulations, and thanks to it, the audio quality is exceptional.

The new digital FT-70DR naturally utilizes the Automatic Mode Select (AMS) function. AMS detects the operating mode of the received signal as C4FM digital or FM analog, and automatically and instantly switches the receiver to the appropriate mode. Users do not need to manually change between modes.

Multi-Colored LED Mode-Indicator equipped on its front case also assists an operator to enables hassle-free operation with AMS. This indicator clearly and visibly shows the transmit/ receive mode by changing its color, and the operating mode of the transceiver is easily recognized at a glance.

One of other distinguishing features of the FT-70DR is Digital Group Monitor (GM) with DG-ID and DP-ID. DG-ID (Digital Group Identification) and DP-ID (Digital Personal Identification) are the useful features newly included in the FT-70DR, to simplify the GM operation. Very simply, the transceivers selecting the same DG-ID or DP-ID can communicate but not others. Between 00 and 99 DG-ID and DP-ID are selectable, and users can enjoy group communication with friends in GM mode according to their operation needs.

Other included standard features and functions are; IP54 Rating (Dust/ Water Protection) construction, wide band receive coverage of 108 - 579.995MHz, Versatile Scanning Capabilities such as Programmable VFO Scan, Memory Scan, and Priority Channel Scan, External DC Jack for DC Supply Operation and Battery Charge, Mini USB port for convenient memory management and software updates, CTCSS/ DCS Operation, Automatic Power Off (AFO) feature, RF Squelch, Transmitter Time Out Timer (TOT) and Busy Channel Lock-Out (BCLO).

The new M-100 Microphone features a hybrid design - integrating high-quality Condenser and Dynamic elements.

The Condenser Microphone Element produces greater overall frequency response - with clear and crisp audio characteristics - while the Dynamic Microphone Element delivers enhanced low and mid-range frequency response. A set of one-touch buttons on the microphone base enable the two microphone elements to be used independently or in combinations to create the most favorable sound quality for each person's unique voice characteristics.

Built-in Low-Cut (cut-off at 340Hz, -6dB/octave) and High-Cut (cut-off at 2kHz, -6dB/octave) controls shape the low/ high frequency responses enabling changes to be made in the transmitted audio characteristics, according to user's preference and operating conditions.

The supplied TBC (Treble Boost Cowling) further enhances the voice response attributes in the important 1,000 - 1,500 Hz range, in order to develop a penetrating signal with a condensed and specific texture.

The PTT key actuates three Air-Cylinder Tubes, which afford a smooth and comfortable keystroke - free of a hard "click". The incorporation of a magnetic switch ensures long-life and stable operation.

The highly visible ON AIR LED Indicator clearly informs the user when the PTT circuit is active.

The supplied microphone cable can be used to provide power to the M-100 simply by connecting with compatible YAESU HF transceivers*. Current YAESU HF radio owners can immediately start using this new microphone as an exciting and valuable addition to their current ham radio operation. Whether it's for wider-range audio with more presence or focused energy to cut through the pile-ups, the M-100 is an exceptional station asset.

The M-1 Reference Microphone is the ultimate, high-quality, innovative desktop microphone, dedicated to the most discriminating Ham Radio Operators. It features combined Condenser and Dynamic microphone elements.

The Condenser Microphone Element produces greater frequency response and clear, crisp audio characteristics perfect for being heard on crowd bands and in big DX pile-ups, while the Dynamic Microphone Element delivers the rich low-mid tonalities, favored for local QSOs. The response of each microphone element may be adjusted independently using the internal Nine (9) Band Graphic Equalizer. Each element has a separate volume control for independent adjustment of output levels. The output of each microphone may be selected separately, or they may be combined to produce the most pleasant tonality.

Both the Condenser Element and Dynamic Element in the M-1 utilize the Nine (9) Band Graphic Equalizer (63Hz, 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz, 16kHz). Each element’s frequency response is independently adjustable. Two (2) frequency response memories and a “through” mode are provided for each element, and are easily switchable by one-touch buttons on the microphone base.

The supplied TBC (Treble Boost Cowling) enhances the voice response around the important 1 – 1.5kHz range. Attaching the cowling creates a condensed unique tonal texture that is pleasing for many.

The PTT key uses three Air-Cylinder Tubes which afford a smooth and comfortable long keystone. The contactless magnetic switch ensures long-life and stable operation.

Other included features are; Recording and playback capability (20 seconds), to confirm the audio tonality; Large red TX LED Indicator; Large Graphic Equalizer and Frequency Response Scope LCD Display with anti-reflective coating; Headphone jack; Touch PTT keylock; Built-in low-cut filter to shape the low frequency response; Cannon-type (XLR) output plug connector; and Audio output volume control for headphones. Two screwdrivers are included to precisely adjust the graphic equalizer and microphone gains.
