Hum, i guess I've not seen an IC-706 display in sunlight, though it sure
looks fine in ambient room light, with good contrast & very distinct
characters. I used a TM-D700A display on a m/c handlebar, w/o any sun shade,
for many years here in AZ while supporting events, like long bicycle rides,
and never found it difficult to see.

You may want to get a look at a TM-V7A display, which has blue backlighting, before going that way. Too bad we can't get these looking like an Icom IC-706, or even a TS-2000, display.

Hi Charlie,

Yes, went thru' all the variations on page 65. Had 4 PM's setup including reverse, still not really visible.
No not using polarizing sunglasses.
I guess I'll have to live with it until I find something better
Thanks for responding

Hi,

I'm having a hard time reading the front panel on my D700. At night it
is fine but during the day in bright sunlight it is almost impossible to
read the frequencies on it. I have it mounted low on the dash so it's
not getting direct sun onto it. I went thru' all the menus with no
improvement

Has anyone else found this and if so is there a cure for it.

Thanks,

John

Re: Low audio on MC-53DM Mic

I was not aware that a D700 could be modified for Narrow Band.  How is that done?

Have had this 'low volume' on transmit reported to me from time to time, and seems to me to occur when I have transmitted on the voice channel through a repeater at the same time that an an APRS packet was being sent on 144.390 MHz by this radio.
.
Power cycle (on-off-on) seems to clear the darn thing and restore volume to normal levels on the TM-D700 for voice operations.

Also, switching from B to A and back to B side also clears the low volume issue equally well, as in using VOP (Voice Over Packet) with a 100Hz tone with nearby APRS mobiles.

Before, I have also replugged the mike cord RJ connector while rig is turned off, but the main radio case is mounted under my mobile front seat and not convenient to reach.

Hope this helps!

I just started using my Kenwood TM-700 again with the MC-53DM mic and I have
gotten a few signal reports that said that the radio had "low Audio".


I've seen a few posts on the subject. Does anyone have a fix for this? I'm

Any info or recommendations on this would be appreciated.
