I second both options

Hi Bob, on the
Icom 7300 it is possible to set the time and date via
the CAT command. The function of
setting the clock on the radio using computer system
time is useful, given the problems with the clock
battery on the IC-7300.
For me, the
problem is how to extract the current system time
in a suitable format so that it can be built into
the hex command which I could then send to the
station. At the moment I use
a small script for this outside the Logger, but I have
to do it before starting Logger, because Logger locks
the com port for its communication
with the radio.
the Icom 7300, there is a possibility via the CAT
command to start Voice memory from the station.
possibility is not documented in the manual (but
it is documented in the manual off, I think IC
7610), it works perfectly on 7300. Now I use it by
sending hex command using RCP panel, but it would
be nice if it will be possible via DVK panel, for
which it is intended.

how does one set the radio time? CAT commands?

Since some transceivers have a time of day clock display,
I suggest adding an option to synchronize the rig's clock
to the computer clock. This is separate from synchronizing
the logging computer time via NTP or the Windows time set
feature. Setting the rig clock could be done when Logger32
starts, on demand, or at regular intervals.
This suggestion definitely falls in the "nice to have"
category. However, such a feature would avoid manual
settings or fiddling with utility programs. -- de Wes
