Like Joanne said, you need to learn to appreciate "Gallows humor"... when

swinging in the air... in the case of the landslides, the reality is so
unbelievable...all one is left with is a smile...

There are now 2 huge augers (60 -80') + the 150' crane across the street...

My tiny 85' tower is totally dwarfed....even though it is sitting 25' above
street level on my side of the street...

Talk about feeling inadequate....

I was over talking to the crane operator this AM.. and suggested we test it
out as an antenna platform... he told me he could extend it to 200'... Boy
do I ever want one of those...

On a positive note they seem to be sinking several 2' metal shafts into the
ground to support the foundations.... should improve my ground plane and
save me the cost of putting in more ground rods...

Chris, it is called "Graveyard Humor". The jokes police officers,

or any other "respected" segment of society tell each other privately
would drive most others right up a tree with disgust. A mortician's
response to a colleague's "Give me a hand" request might be quite odd
in the right circumstances.

Such humor is about all that keeps them relatively sane and functioning.
And it disgusts others who happen to catch it from outside. "Ya gotta

lot of sense.

The folks in la Jolla, and a lot of other places out here, are faced

have I'd not be able to keep going. (And I'm pleased to report my off
kilter humor has helped some similarly afflicted people in their quest
to keep going in the face of what seems like overwhelming odds. The

May or June?

Dr. Howard S. White <drpaper@...>
 

One of the benefits of putting the IC-7000? on order is that once your money is on the line someone will talk to you...Last week, Icom was denying that the product even exists.. so Saturday I put an IC-7000 on order at HRO..

Today I was told by my salesman at HRO, that "ICOM WAS NO LONGER DENYING ITS EXISTENCE" and I could expect delivery May or June... depending on the time for FCC type acceptance.

Based on what happened with the IC-756 Pro 3 .. Put it on order in August... They began US deliveries in December...

So I may actually get one by June..

whatever it is ......

[NO ONE HAS SEEN ANY SPECS... SO NO INANE QUESTIONS PLEASE]

and whatever it costs....

[THE PRICE HAS NOT BEEN SET.. SO NO INANE QUESTIONS PLEASE] ....

Re: Do our comments affect the design of the IC7000 ?

MKM <mab2000@...>
 

Actually, I do not want a tuner inside the 7000 either. Rather, I was talking about a proposed AH-5 which would be an AH-4 replacement. These tuners are external, long wire tuners.

Re: Do our comments affect the design of the IC7000 ?

All these wish lists sound more like "7800 Mk II G" rather than 7000.

Allowing bandscope data to feed over the Ethernet remote control
interface is something I forgot to mention. (And I admit I am
treading on 7800B or MkII or whatnot territory.)

Reports back to the radio via Ethernet can and should be unpolled.
Ethernet handles collision details nicely. That gets rid of many
of the uglies of the CI-V interface;. I'd add to your 1A memory
reports request the implicit request that they be "complete". Any
memory should memorise the entire control state of the radio at the
time and restore it on call back. That complete status should be
part of the remote control memory status report. (And a poll to
request "radio status" should exist if the "push" mode from radio
to remote controller is not desired.)

(Ethernet remote control begs another question, TCP or UDP. I'd LOVE
to natter with the engineers designing it over just this issue. I
have some nice practical experience, some of which was painful to gain.)

{^_^}

From: "Ralf Reiterer" <ralfreit@gmx.at>



Since many guys have already placed their wishes for the IC-7000 (or
probably for MKII or later), I will add mine below:

My focus will be more on the interoperability features between the
IC-7000 and the computer since most other desires have already been
written by other people. OK, here they are:

* implement a sophisticated CI-V command set that allows (almost) all
functions to be controlled from the computer. As that is the case for
most modern radios like the PROIII and therefore nothing new has to be
invented, that should not a real problem. Just "copy and paste" the
PROIII's firmware code, Icom! ;-)

* document all extended commands like the extended memory read/write 1A
00, so that it is easily usable.

* allow bandscope samples to be read from the computer. The AOR
AR-8200/8600 provides a simliar feature, so it should be possible,
although the bandwidth of the serial cable is limited.

* support special characters like �,�,�,�,�,�,� etc. in memory names. In
Europe almost any language needs them. Icom, take a look the characters
in Windows 1252 and 1250 character set.

* report ALL changes made directly on the radio back to the computer -
currently only frequency and mode changes are reported.

* I vote for keeping the CI-V 3.5mm jack since every Icom radio has it
and therefore allows to operate them all via one bus line.

* But I also welcome an USB or ethernet jack. Ethernet would be better
since it is almost as easy to use as the serial line. USB is a bit
tricky if it is a real USB jack and not a "serial line wrapped into an
USB line" as it is the case for the IC-R20.

I think that's it for the moment. ;-)

Re: Do our comments affect the design of the IC7000 ?

jdow <jdow@...>
 

Just a thought - the USB interface concept is "nice". But it is
horridly short range. There is something to be said for the ability
to have the radio on a somewhat longer tether than USB allows,
particularly the newer USB2.

A good tuner is not going to fit inside a radio as small as the 7000.
Low loss requires large components most of the time. (I start shivering
well above temperatures suited to even the highest temperature super-
conductors we have.)

The user interface aspects of the dual transceive may prove the
downfall of such a design attempt. But it "might" be nice. (Do
everything generally leaves out the "well" word. There is a time,
place, and market for it. Just be aware of the tradeoff.)

For FM running down to 9.6 volts is easy. For SSB you raise your
distortion considerably. A power supply to boost the 9.6 back to
13.8 is costly and consumes volume. It's a tradeoff. (A rig that
can run down to 9.6 volts and has many users who routinely do that
could earn the same revulsion from me I felt for the Swan 6 meter
transceiver that splattered across 6 meters instead of behaving
nicely in most instances.)

LED backlight is indeed a really good idea whose time has come,
I suspect.

DRM in the DSP may be a good idea. I have mixed opinions. For a
little thing like the 7000 I think it is a very good idea. For a
big thing like the ProIII or 7800 I believe DRM and other decoders
belong in attached computers operating off an Ethernet supplied
feed from the IF strip's I/Q "if" information after basic bandpass
filtering and such. That way a computer can provide much of the
DSP function. This allows an instant modulation mode update as the
technology base grows.

In line with that last I want the digital IF outputs "tapped" just
before the demodulation to baseband for SSB or whatnot. I also want
the digital baseband "audio". I want 'em on a nice TCP link by
command over that same TCP link. That is fitting accompaniment to
Ethernet based remote control.

{^_^} Hey, W6MKU can dream, can't she?

----- Original Message -----
From: "MKM" <mab2000@verizon.net>

correct, too late now but the mk2.

Note to Icom:

- I want digital audio IN/OUT.
- I want a complete antenna system for the car a la atas-120, or a new
AH-5 tuner that follows frequency change and tune the antenna system
without transmitting each time (from memory of previously tuned
values).
- Software upgradable through ethernet port which is also used for
remote operation.
- Ability to receive one HF band in SSB/CW and 2m FM AT THE SAME TIME.
This is possible if the fm side of 2m/440 is just a classic non-dsp
design as there is only one IF-DSP chain.
- Please make sure that if we connect ICOM's 2.4 GHz converter, the
display corrects itself for the proper band operation (not displaying
2m frequency while in 2.4ghz mode).
- I repeat my desire for the ethernet port or a USB 2 port. Lets dump
the old control interface for the new USB 2.
- Ability to run down to 9.6V with reduced RX current and power limited
to about 5 watts with display auto-off
- Make sure you use LED backlit for the display.
- Why not put the capability to decode DRM in the DSP and be the first
Amateur equipment to do so.

I do not think there will be enough room for video out for external
display.

Ditto's on the ethernet instead of USB. you can run a ethernet cable

p.s. that Kenwood / Icom deal worries me a little. We need more info on

Yaesu & Standard did a similar takeover in the past.

HRO. I think senior level management or such will know.

We just wait and see. The 706 is an old but good radio. I got mine
from the
first shipment back in the 90s. It is just time for a replacement.

Furthermore, looking at the R&D of Icom, they are done with the
ultimate
rig, the 7800, they are done with the replacement for the 756pro
series, one
should ask what they were designing next and that will be a mobile
radio to
replace the 706mk2g.

Also, keep in mind that nobody saw the Pro3 coming....the pro2 is
still on
sale. So anything is possible.

Re: 70mhz available on the 7000?

Adam Farson
 

Hi Best (or should I call you MKM or mab?)

Actually, my good friend Matt KK5DR and I claim bragging rights for
predicting a radio quite similar to the IC-756Pro3 as far back as mid-2003.
We even came up with a hypothetical "precursor" to the IC-7800 which was
not to far off the actual product.

Cheers for now, 73,
Adam VA7OJ/AB4OJ

Hate to disappoint you guys, MWE has the information from here or
rather Adam's site.
