    I sent a longer reply via PM, but the sort answer for those playing along,



    I found the IC-7300 very easy to get on the air operate. I connected power, coax, did a quick mic gain check and called out CQ. I used the radio with 98% of the settings at default for about 4 weeks before I started tweaking settings to further refine things. The tweaks made operating even more enjoyable as they suit my operating needs/wants, but even before that I was pleased. I just took the time to learn what I wanted and then it was very easy to fine tune and grow into.

    Once I get some time to sit back down in front of the radio I will review my notes.
    One change was the scope/meter settings based on this document -
    http://webpages.charter.net/n9ewo2/ic7300_scope.pdf
    I also know I have been riding the RF gain or attenuator a lot more while upping the scope reflect settings to +3 on average.
