SETUP Your Icom IC-7300 for WSJT-X/FT8 – EASY Beginners Guide

In this tutorial I walk you through the step-by-step process of configuring your Icom IC-7300 for seamless operation with WSJT-X and popular digital modes like FT8. These are my personal radio settings that I use for use with FT8, WSPR and other modes that have proven to help me make thousands of contacts in WSJT-X, ensuring you get the most out of your IC7300.

Icom IC-7300 USB driver 👉

Level up your Icom IC-7300 here 👉

0:00 Setup your IC-7300 for WSJT-X
0:24 Radio Settings
2:48 USB Drivers
3:33 COM Port and USB Audio
5:17 WSJT-X Settings
7:35 Adjusting RX Audio Level
8:07 Set your Filters WIDE
8:58 TX Audio Level & ALC

Additional notes:
The baudrate you use in WSJT-X is dependant on if CI-V USB Port is set to Unlink from [Remote] or Link to [Remote].

Link to [Remote] = Use the CI-V Baud Rate on Page 1 of the CI-V menu
Unlink from [Remote = Use the CI-V USB Baud Rate on Page 2 of the CI-V Menu
