Hello everyone,

I just received my 7000 a few weeks ago and love the radio. i'd like to hook the radio up to my shack computer and use Ham Radio Deluxe. What type of cable do I need for this? Do I need any other device?

Thanks

Jack,

This one looks like a mono audio version of the A/V cable. If the
TV/monitor has mono audio, it is a good choice. My TV/monitor has stereo
audio.

Sorry Ralph, but that won't work.

This one is the correct cable.

Video out not working

B Johnson <kb7drn@...>
 

It would seem that it wasn't the TV, mono cable, or my soldering.  Further testing with the TV and a portable DVD player ruled them out.  Other devices play nicely together.  The finger is now pointed toward my 7000.  It doesn't seem to be producing a signal.  The only thing that I can think is that at some point I might have plugged  my computer into that port inadvertentently.  That would just be a guess.  Anyone ever had this sort of thing repaired?  I guess I will be watching TV after all and not the display.

Re: SWR indicator

Robert <virtual81@...>
 

I had a similar issue, turned out to be blown PA that had somehow taken the SWR bridge with it.
The PA was replaced under warranty, but i received the unit back still with no working SWR meter.
Back again and recived that would read <1.5:1 from 13MHz to 16MHz, and 1:1 over the entire 20m band so it was obvious i had discovered the secret to the dipole with magical bandwidth.
Another few trips followed.
On my 4th trip back to the warranty department they replaced the radio.

Time has now passed and my 70cm PA is blown again, although that is offtopic regarding your problem.

I'd suggest you try a few other antennas and loads and see if you can get any sense from the SWR meter.

73, Rob


Re: [IC-7000] SWR indicator

Luis Saavedra
 

Suspect the antenna first. Break the problem down. Remove the turbo tuner and Using an antenna analyzer first ensure the SWR is below 1.5:1 on all the frequencies AND all the bands you intend to use with your tarheel antenna, then install the turbo tuner and make sure it finds the correct spot in every frequency and all bands. The turbo tuner is not a coupler so if your antenna feedpoint is highly negatively reactive there is nothing it will be able to do to resonate it out. The input impedance at the antenna load in your situation can only be matched (cancelled) by the coil of your tarheel removing the excessive capacitive reactance from your short whip to create the required resonance.

The SWR indicator on the 7000 does not change as the antenna is in search mode.

What am I missing? Why doesn't the indicator change ?

I use the same setup and the swr meter will stay full scale until you get almost to the match and then it will drop off to zero or usually something less that 1.5:1.

Usually those tv's use a stereo or more cable, 1 video and one or two audio contacts. Yes I have seen a mini plug with a tip 2 rings and a ground ring. Try a stereo plug.

Gerhard Baumgartner <gjmb@...>
 

hi guys,



tnx for all comments and offers. I know now that nothing can go wrong with
the sm-20. in a friends shack I saw the combination of the following heil
products:

- hm-10 dual

- boom pl2t

- foot switch

- and div. cables



so I am thinking about this combination. with the boom the table stays free
for other work and with the foot switch hands can do something different
than working the ptt.
