Re: Icom 7300 Filter 2 Selected Automatically?

Hi Chuck,

Thanks for your e-mail.  My software doesn't send any filter commands whatsoever.  Icom rigs change filtering when they receive a new mode command.  You can select the options on the rig interface form to not send mode commands (I use the option for CW).

Enjoy!

Chuck,
 
I understand that this is not a CW contest, but have you tried, in the rig interface setup, checking the box “Don’t send CW mode change if on CW (so CW filters won’t reset)”?

Using the CQ WPX Contest software with my Icom 7300, I noted that every time I tune to a frequency using the DX Spotting panel, the rig always switches to "FIL2". If I manually toggle it to FIL1, then change frequencies by clicking a spotted frequency again the rig switches to FIL2 again.  Is this by design?  Can it be configured to stay on FIL1?
