Band Stacking Registers; CI-V Commands


JOHN MUNTON G7SSE
 

Hi Group

Trying to get commands for the Band Stacking Registers working with my IC-7610 so as to switch between them using programable "buttons" in my logging software.
Not having any joy however.

These are what I've tried for the 40m band;

$hexcommand FE FE 98 E0 1A 01 03 01 FD$     (latest)
 
$hexcommand FE FE 98 E0 1A 01 03 02 FD$        2
 
$hexcommand FE FE 98 E0 1A 01 03 03 FD$     (oldest)

Any insights appreciated.

OK, when you do what response does the 7610 send back have you got a sniffer online?

That data would really help! if you dont have one look at HHD Device Monitoring studio freeware (for 20 minutes sessions thats plenty!) you may have to either use a virtual port or even easier simple install another usb ftdi port on your CI-V bus (wiat for it sales pitch coming! :-P ) or use a CT-17B :-D (sorry could not hold myself back!

do you get a FA or FB or what else?

Hi Richard, thanks for your reply.

Got to admit I'm a bit of a novice with the CI-V commands.

I just figure out them out from the 7610 manual and set up the controls in my logging software (Logger32) with them.
Up until now all that I've tried have worked.
It might even be that the Band stacking commands are not supported by Logger32 ??

Here is an extract, if it helps, of the communication from Logger32 to my 7610 showing one of the commands being sent;

Mode poll Rx : FE FE 98 E0 26 01 FD FE FE E0 98 26 01 00 00 02 FD
Poll Split : FE FE 98 E0 0F FD
Split Rx : FE FE 98 E0 0F FD FE FE E0 98 0F 00 FD
Direct Radio Hex Command : FE FE 98 E0 1A 01 03 02 FD
Poll main VFO : FE FE 98 E0 25 00 FD
VFO poll Rx : FE FE 98 E0 25 00 FD FE FE E0 98 25 00 00 00 13 07 00 FD
Poll sub VFO : FE FE 98 E0 25 01 FD 

Oh, and FB regarding the sales pitch :-)

Heres a few comments;
Mode poll Rx : FE FE 98 E0 26 01 FD (This is from the Application E0)  FE FE E0 98 26 01 00 00 02 FD  (Response back from the radio 98, with 01 00 00 02 as the DATA meaning 01 = Sub 00= LSB 00= Data mode OFF and 02= Filter is set to Filter 2
Poll Split : FE FE 98 E0 0F FD This seems to be missing a response???
Split Rx : FE FE 98 E0 0F FD You see this one is complete, why was there another above???) FE FE E0 98 0F 00 FD  and this is the proper response, the split is OFF
Direct Radio Hex Command : FE FE 98 E0 1A 01 03 02 FD Here you are asking the 7610 on 40m to select stack 2 but again I am missing a response from the radio??? radio response would start with FE FE E0 98
Poll main VFO : FE FE 98 E0 25 00 FD Agreed?
VFO poll Rx : FE FE 98 E0 25 00 FD Why are you sending it twice? this is wrong? FE FE E0 98 25 00 00 00 13 07 00 FD and a proper response from the 7610
Poll sub VFO : FE FE 98 E0 25 01 FD Agreed but no respons?
All I can think of here is that the confusion over the missing responses would be caused by the ECHO mode in your CI-V settings, are using the USB port or the CI-V (Remote port on the back of the 7610 and pls describe the setup for these recording how were they made?

Back to the Stack issue, the radio never respond to the command, I am thinking of a timing issue possible there is some confusionon the recordings, but at least the other commands were responded to, I am thinking of a possible timming issue or collisions you may want to had (too mutch) delay between the commands to see if the radio reacts and then adjust the timming between commands.

Hope this helps (and without any sales pitch :-D )
