Re: Winlink, easy digi, and ic7000

FWIW --

This video might be helpful:


and a search on YouTube for UZ7HO will give you a few others.

In that video, around 6:00, the presenter suggests that you should first have your soundcard interface (the EasyDigi USB) running, _before_ playing with UZ7HO's software.

So first question:

. . . When you run non-packet digimode software (fldigi, WSJT-X, etc),
. . . . . does everything work right ?

In particular, does the EasyDigi go into "XMIT" mode,
. . . . raise the PTT line to the IC-7000, 
. . . . and does the IC-7000 "hear" the PTT line, and go into XMIT mode, 
. . . . and does the IC-7000 take the audio signal from the EasiDigi and transmit it?

You should get that much working, first.

It seems (reading the eHam.net reviews) that some models of the Easy Digi _do not have a PTT output_.  If you have one of those, (if I remember right), you _cannot_ use the 'DATA' input on the IC-7000:

. . . the IC-7000 VOX only works on the "Mic" input, and only in non-DATA modes.

This is more complex than I realized at first.  I haven't looked at the IC-7000 manual for a long time.  I can't find a real manual for the Easy Digi online -- there are several videos, and that's all.

Please reporrt back -- thanks --
