It's time for the maintenance crew of
that repeater to do an alignment!

I have just the opposite issue. I can bring up all the 2 meter repeaters I can hear, but I have a problem with our 440 machine in Roswell, Ga. I have the correct tone selected and tone mode.

Here are some interesting data points:

- the problem is only with one repeater

- frequency counter shows the xmit freq is slightly low. .4737 vs. .4750. This is consistent on all repeaters

- local repeaters further away (20 miles) come up just fine.

- if I use "split" operation, and make the xmit frequency exactly .4750, it works 4.0.

- if the temperature is above 65 degrees, the problem goes away.

So my conclusion is that in the winter, I have to operate in "split" mode on the local 440 machine. In the summer (above 65 degrees) I can operate the 7K in normal repeater offset mode. I believe the issue is with the machine and not my 7K.

Your situation may vary, but the above are some things you can try to troubleshoot the issue.

Simply listen to your IC-7000's signal on a
separate 2m receiver. You should be able
to hear virtually ANY so-called "sub-audible"
tone if your IC-7000 is transmitting it.

These tones were only "sub-audible" back in
the days of the old commercial FM transceivers.
Back then, the receiver audio was definitely
limited below 300 Hz by filtering. Current
ham rigs are basically wide open at the low
frequency end of receive audio response, so
the tones now come through to the speaker.

Some of the previous posts are incorrect. Some repeaters do transmit
a tone as well as receiving one for tx. This may or not be the
problem. Good luck.

2 things, first you say you saw 80-100 watts out on high power. Unless something else is seriously wrong you should only get 35 watts or so out on 2M high power.
2nd if you are getting power out, take another radio and set it to tone decode or TSQL the set your 7000 for the tame freq and pl with no offset / simplex. Can you hear yourself? If not then there is a pl problem. If so then recheck your settings for the repeater.
One other thing it could be is low tx pl and that would take at least a call to icom and probebly a service monitor to correct.

Hope it helps

Hello,
I am having trouble with my 7000 on 2m. I have the correct tons and offset programmed. I can not bring up 2m repeaters. It seems as though the tone squelch has quit working on 2m. It works fine on 70 cm repeaters. i reset the entire radio. I hear it working on simplex by listening on a hand held. It receives just fine. It transmits on simplex fine. Power output is 5 to max. I think it was 80 or 100 watts.
I checked the 2m antenna swr also low and high power. My hand held keys ups the repeater on 1 watt. I have run out of troubleshooting ideas. Anyone else have this problem and and fix.

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.

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

Also take in mind that you can set different frequencies for FM-TSQL and for FM-TONE, make sure you are setting the right one. If there's any question you can set them all the same.

Afternoon everyone in the group. Was wondering if anyone has experience with the 7000 and use on the MARS bands.

With cuts to the NASA budget we may never get to the moon, never mind Mars.
I would wait to see if we get there before you mod your radio :)

Sorry couldn't resist

I did the mod to mine. Works fine on AFMARS frequencies.

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.

Thanks for the info. Knew that it had to be mod'ed ,was just hoping to find
some input from other 7000 users who might have done it to their rigs.

Of course, you have to modify it with instructions
on the website... www.mods.dk . Click on Icom
on the left and then scroll down on the right to IC-7000.
