You can use one of those DA adapter boxes that has a built-in digital
tuner. I picked up one when the govt. offered them and it works great. Just
tune the radio to the analog output channel of the tuner box and you're all
set. Since it's digital, it looks great on that small screen.

Best regards,
Mike, KT2T

BUT, my 7" screen monitor for the 7K does have a digital tuner and I can
switch back and forth between QSs. OF course USA digital doesn't work in
motion!.Euro and S American digital does work in motion I understand?

Thanks Jack.  I guess that it is a moot issue now.  Just got my 7k, and was

My eBay Kawamall USB programming interface for a Kenwood TH-F6a HT works great. No driver issues. Think they make I/O cables for just about any radio. Ships from the US. Something to consider.

Pop Filter Effect

Charles & Sandra Cohen
 

There's a YouTube video that shows the effect of adding a pop filter:

There are probably more such videos. Lots of hits for "pop filter", but not many have "with / without pop filter" comparisons.

[IC-7000] Re: Radio output

Jim <w8lgz@...>
 

FWIW...you're radio is doing exactly what it's supposed to do. All messing with the service menu (it isn't hidden or secret) will do is increase your spurious emission (splatter).

Well said.

There's a clip that latches the plug to the socket. You need
to press down on the latch using a thin screwdriver.

As an Icom user since 1972, I have noticed
that Icom is not generally in the mode of a
"newest and greatest" model every 2 or 3
years, either for fixed station or mobile FM
radio equipment. Can't say the same for the
hand-held radios, but with the volume and
cost of those that are sold, perhaps their
development costs can be spread over many
more units.

Thank you for your concern about the subject line which was "Should I buy a IC-7K"?" which you changed int :subject line

A list member was asking the question of which I answers:

"I liked the two radios that I own since they provide me with operational
continuity, but in my personal opinion the IC-7000 has now reached the "Long in the Tooth" stage.
If you can hold off you may get a more "modern" radio that will provide a better longevity curve.
The 7K at this point is getting close to the "DECADE" mark and it is still in its original non upgradeable format just look at the 60 Meter situation and Icoms answer to perform the "all band" modification but at your own risk"

That is the answer to your QUESTION on the topic!

And to further answer your other retorts.

A stated I own two (2) IC-7000's and I do own the "Official" Icom Service Manual, Thank you for your concern.....

Yes Buy the damn radio already!!!!! and buy the service manual while you're

Subject: [IC-7000] Re: Should I purchase a IC-7000 ?





Steve,
I guess your definition of a "jumper" and Icom's dedinition must differ....
Below is the so called procedure, please note THE WARNING!

IC&#8208;7000 60 Meter Modification
The new FCC rules on 60 meter operation allow the removal of one frequency
(5366.5) and the addition
of another frequency (5357.0). Because the IC&#8208;7000 was designed
before this ruling, it cannot be
modified to comply specifically with FCC requirements as described in their
rules. The IC&#8208;7000 can be
modified only to open up the 60 meter band completely.
Removing D2172 diode on the Main board opens the radio up to all of the 60
meter frequencies,
including frequencies not allowed by the FCC.
Important: It is the customer's responsibility, and not Icom America's, to
comply with FCC regulations.
Procedure

The modification must be performed by a qualified electronics technician.
1. Remove shield. The diode matrix on the main board is located under the
metal shield. Good
SMT (Surface Mount Technology) techniques must be used to remove the diode.
2. Remove D2172.
3. Reinstall the Shield and reassemble the radio.

Any additional comments from you concerning this?

Regards.
Steve

For a little bit more money than the RigTalk, and a slightly larger package, you can grab a Plug&Play USB, get full rig control as well as access to all of the sound card modes. Works really well, for me and its easy enough to unplug from the home rig, grab the laptop and run with the mobile 7k or FT897 portable.

Good luck with whatever you end up choosing.

From what I've read (from others) the FDTI chipset is what I want in a CI-V cable. It seems like all the asian suppliers have Prolific. Also looks like the UK suppliers use the FDTI. However, I have ordered my west mountain radio "rigtalk Cable (58202-1005 RT1/CIV) from HRO.

Thanks for all your help, I'll report on it when I've installed it.

Re: Current draw on transmit

Steve Sawicki
 

David,
My (2) 7k's closely match your results only differing by 1/2 amp on my "base station" setup,that unit puts out 108W into a Bird-Dummy Load combination and uses a PS-125 supply with Voltage and Amp metering and very short cable lenghts.
The Mobile is connected via the normal supplied cable, and yes I replaced the "dinky cheap" fuse connectors with "Blade" fuses and that actually improved the voltage/current drop situation the lenght is still the same.

I am thinking about portable operation with batteries and am trying to get and idea of how much current my IC7000 draws on transmit. I have a Samlex SEC 1235M power supply. It never seems to go over 17 amps at about 14 volts with 100 percent power setting on any band, using rtty mode to a dummy load. That seems like a good bit less than the 22 amps max in the specs. I cannot think of a good way to easily check the meter on the power supply. Has anyone else checked this with a known accurate amp meter? At zero power setting it shows about 3 amps. Receive is about 1 amp. (I hunted the archives for the group and could not find this - sorry if it has already been answered.)
