Re: [IC-7000] 7k TV broadcast reception

Tim Hardy \(AF1G\) <hardyt@...>
 

Yeah, I bought one, too. Has built-in rechargeable batteries, which is a nice touch. The digital receiver doesn't have much sensitivity, though, wouldn't pick up squat, and I live failrly close to multiple digital stations. I took it back. Was going to give it to my elderly mother, who lives in a hurricane zone, to use in case of storm-related power failure. Would make a good dedicated monitor for the 7000 but I already had one I bought from Target several years ago for $79 so didn't need another. The Target TV even included a cable that went straight from the 7000 to the TV, so didn't even have to buy an adapter!

This is why I want one. I think it'd be great when showing off the radio
to the public rather than having folks trying to gather around a tiny
display.

Great idea, have to try it. Never thought of plugging them both in at the same time even though there are two mic plugs on the radio. Guess we got used to the idea of having the plug one in at a time, as few radios ever had two mic plugs. Gotta change that paradigm.

Run the dtmf mic into the other mic plug. Either the head or chassis plug. As far as I know they are both operational all the time.

It has been quite awhile, but somebody used
a wall-jack for two 8-wire connectors, wired
to accept (and parallel) the standard IC-7000
mic and a DTMF mic. I believe he disconnected
the mic element of the DTMF mic. The "output"
of this connector was then connected to the
IC-7000 mic input.

I suspect you could do a similar "trick" using
a separate DTMF pad. At one time, these were

If you're using an AT-180, there is another output/input socket on the back of the unit, and therefore no need to fabricate a special cable.

I know. It's so stupid. What were they thinking? My erstwhile rig, the FT-897 had a stock mic w/ essentially nothing in it, and they offered a "remote mic" that did pretty much everything the 7000's does incl DTMF.

I'd like to make a two-for so I can power my SignaLink SL-1+ soundcard interface as well as my tuner. This would allow me more power options for the interface during field conditions.

need

Re: [IC-7000] DTMF with Mic

Alan M. Maslin
 

They probably would have had to add another button to the mic to switch the pad from band changing/frequency input to a DTMF pad. I just thought it might have been nice if they would have added the DTMF function as one that could be programmed into F-1 or F-2. So, if you didn't need DTMF for anything you just wouldn't program that function into the buttons.

Wow, sounds like a great party when you celebrated your 50th. I still keep in touch with my childhood ham friends and that's really neat. There was a small group of us who were licensed around the same time in 1955 and it's fun to keep in touch with them.

By the way, my son Steve, N3ORH lives in Valrico, FL not far from Tampa which is where I think you are. We get over to see him from time to time. Your call sure sounds familiar. Maybe we've worked on some band at some point over the years.

Guess they were/are focusing on D-Star. Which, by the way, is a pain
to use and offers the casual operator nothing that IRLP & Echolink
already offers. I made the mistake of tieing up about $1000 in
D-Star and will take a bath when I sell it all.

BTW: My 7000 mic just went south. It will still operate in the VOX
mode but PTT is dead. Yet another project!

My childhood bud and next door neighbor, K5RC and I were licensed on
the same day and we celebrated our anniversary at his ranch just
outside Reno with friends from all over joining us. Lots of fun but
it would be nice to be 14 again (in 1959 and not now) :-D :-D :-D

Ok, Tim. Thanks. I kind of figured that was the case. Either they couldn't figure out a way to make the pad on the mic do DTMF because it does all of the band switching stuff or they just figured that most hams would use the rig on HF and that DTMF just wasn't necessary.
