Richard,
Have you checked your current draw at 25% power level?
When I built my "travel" go pack using a 18AH battery I found that the draw differential on my IC-7K between 25% and 50% power was minimal.
Switched to a new 25AH battery, same size and weight as the original 18AH, much better for "digital" operations.

That'd make for a fine day of operation on a local mountain. For more serious portable operation, a larger marine-grade 60AH battery or similar would certainly be a better option.

I run my IC-7000 at 25% power by default and only increase if I have trouble making the contact.

Donnie,

I have done the mod in the past. It involves taking out one diode, if I remember right.
Very small tip soldering iron, some small solder wick and magnifing head set.
On mods.dk, make sure you click on IC-7000 TVRO & MARS Mods by Steve, N5AC (US version).
Your dealer may be willing to do the mod if you do not have steady hands. Good luck.

Software and 1750 tone

Torben Petersen
 

Hello



I have just bought a IC 7000 and is setting it up to work here in Denmark. I
is a European model.

I have found an instruction to operate 1750 burst on page 67 in the manual,
but it seems not to work

when I want to open a VHF repeater.



Do anyone in this group have a hint to a god memory administrator, it is not
bad if its free or cheap. Hi



Bye the way I am rather impressed at the IC 7000, its more sensitive than my
old IC 706 II G





Regards and 73,

Subject: [IC-7000] Re: Frequency calibration

Using the PBT shift I am getting the same result as my original technique. To get the radio frequency readout "spot on" for reception, I have to have the "REF Adjust" in the SET/OTH menu all the way down to 0%. I don't know if this is doing the same thing for the transmit frequency, but I hope so.

Still, when I went into the service mode ADJUST menu, changing the master oscillator frequency did not seem to affect the above adjustments.

I suppose I can live with this, as long as nothing changes further as the radio ages.

Batteries capacity is rated at the C-20 rate (discharge to 11.8 volt in 20 hours). If the current draw is greater than that the actual AH produced will be less. The C-20 rate for an 18AH battery is 0.9 amps.

The 7K draws about 1.5 amps in RX, which would last about 10 hours probably. If you do any transmitting and draw 7-10 amps (assuming low TX power)you might get 4 hours of RX and 30-50 minutes of TX.

A 60-80 AH battery is a better match to the 7K's current requirements. It doesn't like to operate below 11.8 VDC, which will happen pretty easily on a small battery during TX.

Depending on what your portable operation plans are, you might want to consider a more cost-effective 60AH AGM battery and charger in sealed plastic marine box ($20). Use a second marine box for the radio, tuner, headpones, coax, etc.

According to their site, it comes with an 18 AH battery and slow
charger, optional fast charger (3 hour charge time). You can have two of the batteries (for 36 AH total) or have one battery and the IC-7000 in the same case depending on need. Here is link:
