Icom IC-7610 - radio setup


Vince Shirley
 

Hi all,

With my beloved Yaesu FTdx5000 residing in that part of the Bermuda Triangle called Yaesu UK for a warranty repair for 6 covid weeks and counting, I have recently acquired an Icom IC-7610.

This, after nearly 40 years in the hobby, is my first serious Icom radio and I'm very much aware that they tend to do things differently to other manufacturers. However, I have set the radio up with no issue at all, thanks to the set by step guide in the manual (thanks Gary) with only one slight issue.

When I engage Split and Dual Watch manually on the radio the "Operating Split" box in the Logbook entry window flashes along with the split offset in the band map window and RCP.  I don't recall this happening with other radios.

I recollect reading somewhere about the sub-RX frequency of Icom radios not being transferred via CAT - or did I imagine that.

Is this intended behaviour?

The settings I've circled in the screen shots below might be what you need to look at;

John, 

Thank you but that doesn't seem to work.  "Split Operation" is still flashing away to itself.  I'm running SO2V and I see you are set up for SO2R, I don't know if that makes a difference

When the "Split Operation" box is flashing it makes it impossible to actually make any adjustments in Logger32 as the window focus appears to change.  I have to take the radio out of split, make the change and put it back into split again.

I've tried with both Legacy Poll on and off and that doesn't make any difference either.

Thanks - take care

Vince, apologies, I copied the image from the Help Guide. My actual setting is SO2V, like your self.

Dave,

Again, thanks but no joy.  I've set it up both as a 7300 or a 7800 but that doesn't seem to make a difference either.

Thank you Aki that cured it

Very grateful for everyone's help.

Now another question.....


When using the macro   $QSY #Split+01q#$

I get a response from Logger32 "The BandPlan has no entries that match a frequency of  18099.0 MHz" -  which is true if it really did mean 18099 MHz but it should be 18099.0 kHz

Its clearly saying MHz instead of kHz 

Odd?
