Re: [IC-7000] cable

nhorv75597@hargray.com <NHorv75597@...>
 

Rick.

I ordered my SignaLink from DX Engineering, and I told them what I have.
The two cables came with the TNC, and one hooks up to the Data port on the
7k, and the other from the TNC to the USB port on the puter.
That is all you should need. If you want a rig control, for that you might
want to get the cable and driver from one of the Radio
Supply places with a disk. I got one from the web, and the Prolific driver
does not want to load on my puter.
So, I have to manually tune the radio. No biggie there.
You also got some short wires stripped at both ends that are the jumpers.
Pay attention to the hook up!
You should have no problem with the TNC.

Control Head For Sale

Jim <jim@...>
 

Hi,

It's a sad tale, but Icom says repairs to my IC-7000 will cost more than the unit's worth. The problems are all with the Main Unit.

So...that leaves the control head, which is working fine. If you know anyone who is looking for just the control head, it's on eBay:

Re: [IC-7000] IC-7000, SignaLink, & MMTTY PTT Problem

Scott Scheirman <ad7xv.scott@...>
 

Hi Ray,

AFSK on IC7000 _is_ possible with a Soundcard (e.g., SignalLink USB). You
put the rig into USB mode. (A = Audio. You send Audio over SSB to make
the RTTY tones. However, you will not be able to use the RTTY receive
filters.

FSK on IC7000 _is_ possible, but not with a SignaLink. There are several
other choices (I use a US Navigator). Set the IC-7000 to RTTY, and you
get to use the RTTY receive filters.

My .02

Good luck, whatever you decide.

I think you have a FSK versus AFSK problem. The Signalink USB uses audio
VOX for PTT so that limits you to AFSK. The 7000 may not support RTTY

you will get exact info but this may help you search your manual.

Subject: [IC-7000] IC-7000, SignaLink, & MMTTY PTT Problem

Just getting into HF digital and things are working great overall. I'm
using DigiPan for PSK31 and JT65-HF for JT65. Making contacts no problem!

The problem is when I try to transmit from MMTTY. I get the red transmit
light on the SL but the 7000 does not transmit. I think I have the
problem isolated but not resolved; if the 7000 is in RTTY mode, the PTT
will not work. If it is in USB mode, the PTT works fine, just like it
does with DigiPan and JT65-HF.

Is there a way to configure the RTTY mode on the 7000 so that I can use
the PTT from MMTTY?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Digipan

Digipan is the simplest PSK31 program I know. It's a good place to start. HRD can be overwhelming -- too much to learn, too many options.

For a tutorial:

http://www.hamradioexpress.com/pdfzips/PSK31HandBook.pdf

You don't say what your rig-to-computer interface is. SignaLink's are a bit different than "plain-vanilla" transformer-based interfaces.

If you can run RMS Express using WINMOR (as opposed to an SCS PACTOR modem), PSK31 will be a piece of cake. You're just changing from one program to another, and leaving the hardware _untouched_.

Re: [IC-7000] Re: Digipan

Jack Spitznagel <frawg@...>
 

Interesting observation. I had the experience of Digipan being "difficult and deaf" and HRD working for me out of the box. I abandoned Digipan for MixW (IMO, paid too much for it) and I disserted MixW for HRD. MixW worked well for me, the interface was "old" feeling though - The biggest reason I left it behind was that it just looked like there would be a problem with support over time and HRD/DM780/Logbook/etc way outstripped it with useful features in less than a year of development.

Since almost all of the programs share significant portions of soundcard support code (Wheatley's core code), it is beyond me why people think one program is "better" than the other at hearing. Almost all problems are due to the users lack of understanding about how to adjust their sound card settings in Windoze and/or in hardware.

The hardware playing field is not equal. Windoze sound subsystem settings problems are worst in Vista, better in XP pro, and seem to be better in Windoze 7 (so far). (Yes, the OS CAN make a difference - I have tried it under several OS versions on the same hardware.) Other issues that have complicated matters are the "disabling" of OS sound driver features in the OEM supplied drivers from certain laptop manufacturers (Dell in my particular experience). Under pressure from the entertainment industry and other digital rights management "enthusiasts" a lot of "protecting" was done to prevent ripping of MP3's and live recording - particularly flagrant in Vista.

There are differences between what you can expect in performance in the stand-alone interfaces too.

Bottom Line: All of the Digital Comms programs work, some make better choices of default settings for certain sound hardware, so as always, YMMV. Try all the free/shareware programs that support PSK 31 first, then figure out if you want full rig control and whether you need a pretty or plain vanilla user interface, THEN pick your poison. If you buy an interface box like SignaLink or one of the West Mountain Radio boxes, you may have to go through the process again, so keep all of your program installs and do your homework.

BTW, after I became familiar with the ins and outs of sound card based software, I have also become a PropNET alpha tester, as well as an occasional WSPR and AGWTracker user. Each has its place and use for various projects. Digital comms is NOT just PSK 31 - it is it's own world. You'll miss a lot of excitement if you become a "one mode junkie". No different in my mind than becoming an obsessive 75/40 Meter rag chewer or a cutthroat DXer, the rest of the radio universe is lost to you.

Experiment and have fun.

That is my experience as well. I have looked at a number of the PSK programs, but Digipan works best for me over past 8 years.
