The IC-7300 is a truly ground breaking HF +6m +4m radio. It has been one of Icom's best selling radios in the five years since it was launched.
However, Icom have never produced any programming software for it. RT Systems provide a software product which works well but given the number of these units in the field now, I think it is worthy of inclusion on the CHIRP platform.

I have a loaner IC-7300 on hand and am starting on the driver.
First release may be using CI-V (CAT) commands with a saved "image" file.
This first version will support memory channels and some settings.

A future release may use a true memory image if I can get the USB transfer commands captured.

Just checking - does this mean the latest nightlies should show the IC-7300 as an option when "Download from Radio" is selected? At the moment, under the "Icom" vendor, I don't see the 7300 (daily-20201014).

Thanks for your hard work! Let me know if I can help out in landing this patch. <3

Still no IC-7300 support included in 20201121 I note.

The developer was asked to do some additional work on the submitted driver.

Still waiting for the submitted driver to be included in the latest build...
If you would like a stand-alone version to test, please email me at

Oops- backed the % done down to 90% since I am having some great European operators ringing out the "final" beta version.
