There is a fuse on the main body of the radio, behind the head. Did you check that one????

Thanks for responding, Yes I have checked to make sure that the power supply
and fuses are good in fact I changed it out and still have the same problem.
I removed the head and put it back on several times and made sure the
contacts were clean but still no joy, no relay click no lights just dead.
After it has been off the power supply for a while when I hook it back up I
get the normal little arc when I connect up the power supply so power is
making it to the Capacitors.
thanks a lot

Hello to the group,
My radio just went off by it self and wont turn back on, does anyone know
how to fix this problem or a good repair facility in the US?

Doesn't smell like a component failure, but the chassis was quite warm when
it went off after being on most of the day.

Thanks a lot

Re: [IC-7000] mobile install - time to give up

Borrow a spectrum analyzer to see what i s going on with respect to RF being radiated from the car's electronics.
No shielded wiring on a vehicle's interconnecting cables is the normal state of affairs today . My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee emits 6M garbage when it is not running When the driver's door is opened it emits more garbage. The 6 ignition coil packs radiate too.
I seriously believe the auto makers do not want your 20 amp power cable for your HF rig running next to their wire bundles for fear of induction into their cables to screwing up some microprocessor function that disables the vehicle. They are covering their own butts.

Some shielding and bypassing on the manufacturer's part could go a long way to keeping vehicle reliability high and RF susceptibility LOW.

Ask a truck driver how noisy his diesel engine is today with all the microprocessor garbage on it. Its no wonder they need their 27 mhz amplifiers to hear each other down the road a few miles.

Try a new Corvette on HF !


I had a 1990 VW Scirocco that was absolutley quiet on HF except for a tiny bit of ignition noise.

Progress is wonderful. Welcome to the Future !

I have already tried a separate battery. The noise is radiated, not
conducted. Just touching the center conductor of the coax (and I have
tried several types, including, LMR400, RG8, RG8X, RG58A/U, etc) to the
radio causes noise so bad that I can't hear anything else (but only with
the engine running).
Oh well. I appreciate all the offers, but the original question stands.
Will I have problems if I shelve the radio without power connected or do I
need to leave the radio plugged into power for the duration?

noise issue.

Re: [IC-7000] Digital Modes Operation.

Augusto
 

In my experience, it's better to use the keyboard male-female extension cables; those I found - cheap - were screened, had all pins cabled , and had an extra wire not connected... I just cut away the female part and used the male with the right lenght of cable. I found it to be lots better as the mouse or keyboard cables. Hope this helps, 73. Augusto I2JJR / HB9TZA

Re: [IC-7000] ic-7000 - at-180 problem

w3qj37 <w3qj@...>
 

I prefer the AH-4. I have used it loops and OCF dipoles fed with and without ladder line from the AH-4 feeds. I have one that I have 75' control cable and Belden 8267.

I have 2 of these, and for ops up to 100W they both have worked flawlessly for over 2 years.

Good luck.

I just purchased ic-7000 and at-180 and hooked up the two to a G5RV. I checked the Antenna before the at-180 and after and got a good match on both with the 259B. Then I hooked up to the 7K and it pegged the swr meter on the 7k and was unable to bring it down. Any Suggestion for a fix?

Dont let them get you down. The 180 is a great tuner. i have it hooked to a 6 meter inverted V, a G5RV, and an Antron 99 via a switch and it tunes everything to less that 1.5. check your jumper and the acc. socket plug. remember the KISS method. (Keep It Simple Stupid)

Good luck with the tuner.

Where did you get the cable that connects the at-180 with the 7000? I have a set w/o this cable. I saw it was almost $100 from ICOM. Thanks

Fred,

I'm guessing your G5RV has a SWR of > 3:1

The AT-180 won't cut it.

Just the facts.

Re: [IC-7000] ic-7000 - at-180 problem

 

Is it possible that the coax between the 7000 and tuner is bad? A
high SWR at the rig could indicate a bad connection between the tuner
and rig. Just a thought...
