MFJ 994 Auto tuner interface cable to 7K tuner control socket

W1JCW
 

Okay good questions and answers here as usual.

I soldered up a IDE hard drive power plug as suggested so I will give it a try when I have some time.

It would be nice if the pins were explained in the manual just as the other jacks and knobs are.
I wonder why there is not a break out of this connector ??

Thanks for the replies guys.

And you are correct on the power John, the tuner gets it's power from the Rig so no other power source is needed.

Subject: [IC-7000] MFJ 994 Auto tuner interface cable to 7K tuner control socket

I have gone through the 7K manual a few times and I cannot find the pin out of
the “tuner control socket” plug on the back of the rig.

I want to be sure before I connect my home brew 994 interface cable to it.

One can presume according to the diagrams I have seen in the 994 manual that pin
1 looking at the back of the rig
is the left most next to the point <________ of the jack.

I have phoned MFJ to double check the pin out of the plug but have not heard
back from them.

The other question I have is Pin 3, I understand it goes to the center pin of
the power plug 2.1 mm of the tuner.
Does that mean the tuner will obtain its power and ground connections from the “
tuner control socket “ from the 7K ???
and that I DO NOT need to apply 12 vdc from my current other source on the on
2.1 mm plug ??

OOPS.  The screen on this little laptop displayed down to the line drawn across your first message.  I thought that was the end of the message.  I missed the zero beat against WWV part.
 
I'll go play with it.
 
Thanks again.

Hi Joe,

It adjusts the master oscillator frequency to put your radio on frequency
with the rest of the universe.

Once again, zero beat against WWV or WWVH.

How should it be properly adjusted?

Any idea?

Was your CI-V control working and now it doesn't -- or is this a new
configuration for this radio/computer?

Do you see data on the CI-V cable from the computer when you try to control
the radio with HRD? You won't see anything from the radio jack unless it is
responding to CI-V commands from the computer.

Re: [IC-7000] CT-17 Interface

don <don@...>
 

The Ct-17 is an icom device it’s an rs232 /serial connection it allows up
to 4 radios to be connected at once, it’s very expensive compared to the usb
cables. $160 bucks here in zl compare top about $30 for the usb.

I run it all through HRD / DM780 and when setting it up I used the auto find
to configure it, trying to manually configure I just couldn’t get it to
work. There 2 auto find settings.

I thought cat settings was a yaesu thing

The presets for my system are radio ic7000………. port com 1……… speed
19,200……… civ address 70.. dtr and rts both ticked

This all set it self up with auto config

[IC-7000] Re: Function Codes

Steve W3AHL
 

If PWRK is OK on the Main board, but not on the Logic board at the CPU, I would suspect a bad connection through J651, the board stacking connector. Just a little lint or dirt can prevent good contact. Inspect both sides of the connector with a bright light and 5-10X magnifier. There could be a marginal surface mount solder joint on the connector, so inspect the J651/J2251 solder pads for a good fillet while you're at it.

Make sure nothing is preventing the Logic board assembly from fully seating when it is screwed down.

Vern,

If you can give a little more detail about what you were doing before it
failed and what exactly happens when you try to power it on we might be
able to give you some hints.

You might check the 5 amp fuse located behind the little peel-off panel
behind the display head.

The signal names on the schematics start to make since eventually if you
start with the descriptive text for the functional blocks and relate
them to the block diagram, then to the schematics. But there is no
other reference with more detail.

Understanding

Re: [IC-7000] Re: Great RX audio in FM mode

That explained what I hear on some 2m nets, the automated system keeps
acting like someone is sending it commands. Nobody ever mentioned the
cause, they just ignored the symptom. I will be sure to mention it to the
group the next time I hear it happen.

The only thing to be aware of is with full range headphones or speakers
you WILL hear any PL tones the repeater transmits, which are normally
filtered out.

And they are annoying as heck. If you aren't working a repeater with PL
tones you'll be fine. But once you do you will very likely want to go back
to the normal operating mode.

That helps thick people like me! HI!
The USB to 3.5 mm. "cable" is a USB to CI-V adapter (it has active
electronics in it so it's not considered a "cable") and it replaces and
substitutes for the CT-17. That will get you CAT control of the rig via
HRD. Get it controlling the rig and you are half way there.

For DM-780, depending on the Signalink model, you may need additional cables
to hook the Signalink to your rig and PC. Once you have the Signalink
hooked up, you are ready to configure DM-780. Set up for it will consist of
selecting the PTT method and selecting and setting your sound device. If
your Signalink has a built-in sound device (Signalink USB model) you would
select the "USB sound device" and the levels would be set on the Signalink's
front panel "RX" and "TX" controls. For other sound devices, like the PC's
built-in default device, you would set the levels from DM-780's "sliders".

You will find super support of HRD and DM-780 on the HRD forums. They can
offer much greater detail of the software setup.

Do I need the CT-17 level converter unit to be able to use the HRD + DM780
transceiver control functions? If not, what kind of a cable do I need to go

with a 9-pin serial port)? Appreciate any help. I'm new to this group and
the 7000. Dick
Guess I wasn't clear! I do have a SignaLink and the Dell Dimension has lots
of USB ports as well as the 9-pin serial port. So, as I understand it, all
I need to do is connect a cable (USB to the computer and 3.5 mm pin to the
"remote" jack on the back of the 7000 and then configure DM780
appropriately?

I'd appreciate any help in how to configure DM780. I will download their
basic guide.
