Re: IC-7000 to ameritron AL-80B

 

I used the Ameritron ARB-704 with my IC-7000 and Heath SB-200. Buy the Ameritron and never look back and if you get finished with it later you can easily sell it. I eliminated my linear setup by buying an IC-2KL.

Yes, get the one with the Relay.  Or buy an Ameritron ARB-704 to go with the cable.

William,

 

I highly recommend buying the cable with the relay!

It’s a bit more expensive but it’ll protect the switching circuit in the radio.

Hi William, .My name is Pat Cancro (NK3P) and I am a member of Skyview Amateur Radio Society.
I have read some of your postings on the K3MJW reflector. Tonight I saw your question regarding connecting an amplifier to a IC-7000. I myself have that model radio, but had not previously thought about hooking mine up that way, but I am interested in your idea nevertheless.

i'm curious if you have done any research about this issue and would like to talk with you about that.  If you are a member of Skyview and would like to meet perhaps at the Club before or after next weeks' regular Tuesday meeting or at another time and place if you would prefer. 

If you are interested or even if you are not, please let me know either way by email at jpc2@... or phone at 724-309-6304.

Regards, Pat Cancro

How do I use the IC-7000 to key an AL-80B? is there a pre-built cable I can purchase? if so where can I get it? thanks in advance

Check the manual for my accuracy but if memory serves me correct your 13 pin connector has a HSend line. This goes to ground with a very limited current rating. Tie this line to an amp keying device between the radio and the amp. The HSend is for when you are using HF, which is what the 80 B is for. Check the group files and you will find some more info. Good luck, read twice , hook up correctly once, no smoke.

William, go here https://www.icomamerica.com/en/downloads/default.aspx?Category=34

And download the instruction manual. Amplifier interface is on page 21.

Pay attention to the limits of the circuit.

NEW 8 memories external keypad compatible with 705 #all

VE2DX
 

Ok guys, here it is the IMK2 Jr, the baby sister of the soon-to-be-released IMK2 that will have added features... The IMK2 is an 8 memories memory keyer for 7610, 7850, and 705, with mute(7850, 7610)/705(Keyer) input in version 2 released end of this month! We decided to 3D print the enclosures ourselves to save time delay related to enclosure manufacturing. I think the result is really nice, first test print was great, the final version in this simulation, look at the assembly and rounded corners really happy with the result. 73 Richard VE2DX

Also keep watch this month for IMK3Jr for all ICOM HF since 756Prosand some VHF/UHF radios 4 memories keyer. and big brothers IMK2, IMK3 and the dual radios IMK3uP... this month!

Sounds like the dreaded Click - Click failure where a cap shorts in the control head and drops the CPU that has to communicate with the digital unit in the main unit. 
Sometimes this is an easy fix and sometimes not. 
First try cleaning the panel connectors (you may be lucky).
There are two regulators in the head that provide the +5 and 3.3 volts for the head processor.
What happens is you get the power up signal to pull in the relay and then the CPU in the main unit has a few seconds to get a serial signal from the head to turn the rest of the radio on. Without this signal from the head the relay drops out.
This is repairable and is sometimes easy and sometimes not.
Often it is a cap in the regulator circuit that has shorted and this does require some troubleshooting and can (as I have learned) relatively easy or (in my one case) impossible).
If you Google IC-7000 click - click you should get a number of hits that will guide you in your endeavors.


Re: No power up

 

SMD or not it depends very much on if the common easily gotten to part has failed.
There are possibilities that are a little deeper in the circuits and pretty difficult to trace in the front panel.
Been there and done that.
I have fixed all but one that I had and in that case I bought another bad panel and was able to repair that one and sold the one with the recalcitrant panel to another 7Ker that needed the display.
A short will not always be in the regulator circuit!


Re: No power up

Mister Mike
 

This is a well-known issue with some of the 7Ks.  It is well documented amd a pretty easy fix provided you can work with SMDs. Glad you were able to fix it.
