Ham radio · diy IC-7300 ham radio · 2023-10-03 · Daniel

I recently purchased an Icom IC-7300 ham radio for use at home, and when researching the radio around the time of purchase, I discovered this excellent YouTube video playlist, covering many aspects of the radio.

When I got to video 46, I discovered that the IC-7300 supports an external keypad, and decided I wanted one of my own. This past weekend, I made one.

In addition to using that video, I found this page detailing another guy's external keypad build.

I don't have a drill press, but I think my unit came out well. I could have done a better job with the feet, but this works well enough.
