Re: [IC-7000] Finals problem wide spead?

Tim Hardy AF1G <hardyt@...>
 

Steve,

I have two IC7Ks, one that has been mobile since the day I bought it and the other that has been moved often from one installation to another - base, portable, and other temporary use. It is now a part of my "go kit" and mounted in a set of TAC COMM stackable carriers along with an AT-7000 tuner, power supply, and VHF radio.

I have had no problems of any kind with either radio. One radio is over three years old (the mobile), and the other over two years. In fact, I'm surprised by all the problems reported on this group. As with any complex manufactured product, there will be a certain percentage of errors in manufacturing and the company's quality control effort determines how high that percentage is. Then there are users who improperly install it and/or the antenna system, resulting in an eventual failure, users who expect more of it than it was designed to deliver (mounted in a high impact/shock or extremely dusty environment), users who exceed its designed preformance specs (such as running 100 percent duty cycle on RTTY), and a few who never bother to read the users manual and think something is wrong when it isn't. I myself am recently guilty of the latter, having returned an item (not my IC7K) for warranty repair when all it needed was a master reset. It experienced a nearby lightning strike and being computer processor-controlled, began to hiccup. All the service tech did was reset it and verify proper performance. Yes, I am embarassed and was reminded of what I have told others - RTFM.

If you get an IC7K, remember that the SWR meter on the radio screen DOES NOT work properly on VHF and UHF, even though it shows something while transmitting. You need to verify antenna system performance with an external watt/SWR meter. That could be where some folks go wrong and end up with fried finals on VHF/UHF. In fact, I would recommend verifying performance on all bands with a quality external watt/SWR meter.

Am looking for a new rig for mobile purposes. Is the finals problem as wide spread as it appears to be or is the rig as bomb-proof as the 706?

Has Icom solved the "problem" or are the finals just less tolerant of less than perfect SWR?

Re: Finals problem wide spead?

Steve W3AHL
 

I know quite a few 7K owners, none of whom have had PA failures to my knowledge. So it is hard to determine how widespread it is and more importantly, what the root causes are.

Based upon mobile installations I see walking around hamfest parking lots, I suspect many problems are the result of poor antenna, feed line, power and grounding practices. There are a lot of hams with little technical background and few clubs hold technical programs that could help others learn good installation practices.

And many base station installations suffer similar problems. It is hard to fault the radio, when the feed line has cold solder joints, no weather proofing, no lightning protection, etc.

My 7K has lived a hard life and never complained. But I do try to pay attention to the installation details and do preventive maintenance. I've seen no evidence that it is overly sensitive to high SWR, although I try not to "test" its internal foldback to often!

Re: [IC-7000] Mobile Ops

Jack Rucker <jackr1@...>
 

#12 wire is only good for a 3.3' run for 2.5% V drop at 20A.

#10 is good for a 10' run if you accept 5% drop @ 20A. This means your 13.8V will only be 13.1V at the radio [minus drop in fuses & connections].

For 12.6V input, without alternator, you are just below 12V.

#8 is good for an 8' run, if you want only 2.5% drop. Then 12.6V in = ~12.29V.

If your pretty white Icom fuse holders run warm when transmitting for a few minutes, replace with decent Bakelite or wide blade fuse holders. [I waited until mine started melting.]

Wow..this post is like combing a story from my recent memory.

I have a 04 Honda CRV with the 2.4 VTEC engine....same as the Element.

Mine was doing the same thing. Only would drop out under higher power outputs.

I ran my power wires directly from the battery thinking that would solve any voltage draw problems.

The problem was the wire I used wouldn't carry the current under a 15-20 amp draw.....

So...I replaced the wire with a heavier version 10ga. No other changes at all.

Problem solved. Never has dropped out since under any load.

Run a heavier cale directly to battery and don't forget to fuse both leads AT the battery

with the heavier blade thpe fuses.......problem solved.

My IC-7000 is mounted in my 2007 Honda Element. The stock electrical
system on the Element is quite modest (a dispassionate observer might
characterize it as worthless). The engine compartment is the quite
crowded and the OEM size 51R battery only supplies 450 CCA. Receive
is fine but the rig would continually reboot when transmitting SSB if
the engine was not reving faster than appx 2000rpm.

I upgraded the battery to a 640CCA unit from Costco. If the engine
is running and the alternator is charging the battery, I can usually
transmit at full power. I still can't xmit at full power with the

Hi, a propos Battery Boosters,
I own one from years for Marine Purposes, vy fine, it is the original one by Tim Gerdeen, N8XJK , and it works fine, of course.
Inbetween Tim has issued other more clever models, having lot of nice improvements.

I was curious to know if there is some Battery Booster, or a similar device, made in EU ; last year I heard rumours about this, one for 5A and one for abt 35A output, made in DL for campers.
Some EU om knows more about this? Related Infos will be welcome.

The IC-7000 is notoriously intolerant of low input voltage.
You may need to investigate (and buy) one of the battery
boosters which will provide 13.5-13.8 VDC even when the
battery voltage drops down to 12.0 or even a bit lower.

QST had a comparison review of three boosters last year.

Some questions abt squelch, ptt, and TX/blue screen

la7um
 

Hei Group. A friend of mine just bought at IC7000 an gets the Loudsp. and and Headphones squelced, but no ACC2. Is there som way around?

Is this correct?, And if it is, is there a workaround? to Make that Acc2 pin silent as well? As a fixed line signal it is the most
appropriate to use for other amplifications.
For his purpose the best aolution is to use squelc also on the rear digital ports. As opposed to many packet and other dial modes.


2: He has probems when txing the rigg...making sound output., but instead make a Blue screen. and nothing to a nother rig 3m away. What is the remedy and workaround? Could it be some hidden meny?


3: Does the rig has the CIV controll of it PTT?
And what is the HEX values? for start and stop?

After he did by his rig, I am beginning to be curios myself, having IC706, the original, and having been very satisfied.

Tom Mitchell VE7TOM <VE7TOM@...>
 

I have used the modified Nagy hand mic, Heils HC 4 & 5 and ICm as well as
the Icom SM8 on the 7000. The 4 & 5 need a bit of amplification to work
well but are somewhat underwhelming in reports. The ICm cartridge is the
best from all the local and DX reports I have had. Plus it does not need an
extra amplifier. Most reports say the ICm is a bright clear sounding mic
with good articulation where the HC 5 and SM8 are good but unremarkable. The
HC 4 of course penetrating but not bright and the modified hand mic works
but the poorest sound.



I have been collecting a number of elements from old cell phone head sets
and have been planning to compare them when I get some time. Having heard
the quality of some of these elements via cell phones they maybe an
excellent alternative at very low cost.



Some of the low cost computer headsets will be good sound as well but may
need a bit of RF filtering around an HF transmitter. I did some tests with
friends via Skype with my Heil and my computer headsets and the reports
indicated the computer and ICm headsets were indistinguishable from each
other at the other end.

Subject: [IC-7000] Re: HEIL HEADSET WITH ICOM 7000

Does anyone use a Heil Headset with their Icom 7000? If so which model and
cartridges do you use?
I currently use a Heil iCM desk mic but would like to put a headset into
the mix. Thanks

Hi Rick,
I use the Heil Traveler Single Side boomset. I get good audio reports and
it's fairly comfortable whether at home or long drives. It's pretty light
and doesn't seem too robust, but I haven't had any problems.

I also use a single side Heil - very good, but I did have to mod it to use
with my right ear

I use a Heil Pro Set Plus w/ my 7000. Works really well. Currently my 'DX'
element is shot though and it needs to go to the Heil Headset Hospital.
