Reservation for IC-7850 Radio

** UPDATE (March 13, 2015): GigaParts has pre-sold all of the IC-7850 that were originally allotted to us. The IC-7851, however, is functionally identical without the cosmetic treatment given to the 50th Anniversary Edition. There is a small possibility that we will be able to obtain more of the IC-7850 in April or May, but there's no guarantee. If you'd like to be put on the waiting list, add this no-risk reservation to your cart. If it doesn't work out, your $50 deposit may be applied toward a future purchase from GigaParts for up to one year. Click here for more information on the IC-7851. **

This radio has now officially been APPROVED by the FCC.
This is, however, not an offer to sell this radio. Placing an order for this reservation entitles you to right of refusal on a first-come-first-serve basis when this radio becomes available for sale. You may cancel your order at any time and apply your deposit to the purchase of any other item or keep it on your account at GigaParts for up to 1 year, but the reservation deposit is non-refundable and non-transferrable. Once pricing has been announced, you will be sent a link to place your order or you may cancel your reservation and apply your deposit to a future purchase (up to 1 year). In most cases, reservation holders are offered a lower price than those who place their order after the radio is released.

Special Limited Edition! - Only 150 Units Worldwide!

New IC-7850 features include but are not limited to: optimized roofing filter, new first local oscillator (LO) design and enhanced spectrum scope. 

Approximately 150 IC-7850 units (worldwide) will be released as a limited edition to commemorate the company's 50th anniversary. Availability date and pricing will be announced at a later time.

The IC-7850 perfects HF operation with new features such as a 1.2kHz optimized roofing filter to improve in-band adjacent signal performance. The new radio's up-conversion design supports a dynamic range that outperforms competitors' similar models in the 2 to 10 kHz separation tests. Unlike HF rigs that use a conventional voltage controlled oscillator for the 1st LO, the IC-7850 employs a direct digital oscillator (DDS) with a voltage controlled SAW oscillator (VCSO). This new 1st LO design sets a new benchmark for phase noise with -150dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset (and -140dBc/Hz at 1kHz offset).

Icom's IC-7850 also features the spectrum waterfall function found in the manufacturer's IC-7700 and IC-7800 upgrade models. The high-resolution waterfall screen shows the changing amplitude of frequencies over time. An enhanced spectrum scope promotes fast and accurate scan and can be operated with PC mouse via USB port. A dual scope function shows simultaneous activity in both bands. This is useful for searching a sub-band while maintaining a run frequency on the main band.
