Re: Get tuner status after auto-tuning IC-7300 and AH-4 using custom controls?
+ AA6YQ comments below
Stating the obvious, one way you can tell if the tuner worked is to read the power output. If the power output in less than your
power setting your antenna probably not tuned. Can you read the power output?
+ The IC-7300 has a built-in SWR meter. Thus one could complement the user-defined command sequence that initiates tuning with a
second user-defined command sequence that toggles between two states:
1. when it's first clicked, the sequence issues the <txmeter swr> command, and then issues commands that set the RF power output to
5 watts, set the mode to RTTY, and switch from RX to TX
2. when it's clicked a second time, the sequence issues commands that switch from TX to RX, set the RF power output to 100 watts,
set the mode to CW or SSB, and then set the TX meter to whatever you prefer to monitor when transmitting during normal operation.
