The best way is to set the IC 7000 to 100% and reduce the audio in level so that the ALC reads as near to 0 as you can get it then slowly increase the audio in so that the power level is showing no more than 25%
The audio is at the ALC sweat spot, at 1% and 50%+. So no problem there.

Yes no problem if you want to burn your PA...

Hi Robert,

Ik kom jou ook overal tegen ;)

It probably won't hurt the trx, but the linearity will suffer causing excessive sidebands. Just increase power until you see the ALC come up. Back it down after that. Be sure to actually sent out text when you do this test, as the power goes up and down on psk

Jim -

Mine has two - either, both, or neither operational as selected. Press
(and hold) the MNF button. You should see 'NOTCH" followed by two
linear displays, labeled 'MF1' and MF2', and one more (no display)
labeled 'NW'. These are for the "F" selector buttons. Pressing F2
allows you to select/set the center frequency for 'MF1' - pressing 'F3'
selects/sets 'MF2'. Repeatedly pressing either one will first select
it, next make it adjustable, or finally, turn it off. Pressing 'F4'
sets the width of the notch for the selected filter. Pressing the 'MF'
button once more switches back to the menu display (M1,M2, etc.) but
leaves the MF's set to their last condition.

At least, that's how mine works. Hope this helps.

IC 7000 Manual Notch Filter

James Brock <jbrock@...>
 

I sent my unit to Icom for repair. But I seem to recall that I was able to
use BOTH manual notch filters at the same time when I sent in. It came back
and only ONE filter would activate at one time. I inquired the repair shop
and they said the unit was operating correctly and to look at the operations
manual. Sure enough it, though poorly written, says only one operates at
one time.

James Brock <jbrock@...>
 

I am not sure about this. I "seem" to recall that in the past I was able to
pull up and operate TWO manual notch filters at the same time.



What brought this on is I sent the unit in for repair, some static off the
vertical antenna nailed me. The unit came back from ICOM repaired and I
tried to use the MNF. The choice, one OR the other and both off. I thought
it used to be one AND the other or off.



I liked to use the steep filter on both sides of the signal that cut down
the noise level somewhat. I live fourteen block south of the University of
Oregon in a residential area and my noise level is very high.



What is correct/



BTW, just heard on TV news it was official announced. Our University of
Oregon Ducks football team is second nation. Not bad for a bunch of ducks!

When you see such messages with either "no subject" or "unknown", and the message body contains only a link somewhere, do not click on the link. If you do, soon many similar messages will be sent out from YOUR email address.

Such garbage has been showing up regularly on every unmoderated Yahoo group. Whoever is doing this is getting smarter, one of them had a subject of "Welcome" and sometimes they say things like "Wow, you have got to see this!" to get you to look at it.

Please be vigilant and use common sense.

Re: Strange issues with output power

George <george.smart1@...>
 

Hi.

After Christmas and my Birthday, I have been busy at work. As the radio sees a lot of use, I decided to send the radio back to Icom.

The estimate they sent me was for a new RD70HHF1 FET PA. I really doubt that the device has gone, but, now I've sent it to them, I'll have to pay anyway.

The transistors were marked, so I will see if they were actually replaced when the radio is returned. But ultimately as long as it works, I don't care. The total repair bill as follows:

1560001601 FET RD70HHF1-101 (£41.15)
Carriage Charge (£6.50)
Labour Charge (55.00)
Ex VAT: (£102.65)
VAT: (£20.53)
Total: (£123.18)

I will report back if the transistors were actually changed.

Cheers, M1GEO.

I have verified other split frequencies to work, and all simplex, and other set repeaters work fine. It just seems to be this one repeater.

Any Ideas?

[IC-7000] Re: Molex cover

kf5rgb <jmwagn@...>
 

At home depot the other day I seen a can of plastic insualtion for dipping the handles of your pliers in, that ought to work but youd have to brush it on as dipping it would get it inside the connector where its makes contact.

Another idea is heat shrink tubing, even better than that, at the auto parts store (Oriely's) I seen they had some heat shrink tape a couple weekends ago, I bought some and used it on a couple of my projects and it worked out pretty good.
