Also a nice project you can find here. Panadapter for FT-817.

Maybe this is what are you searching for.
The IC7000 has first IF at 124,487MHz for AM/FM/SSB/CW/RTTY.

Retransmission of Received Audio

Eugene Coggins
 

Hello everyone:

I am new to amateur radio so forgive me if I fail to use the proper nomenclature. And I am a proud owner of an IC-7000.

Several of my local contacts who own Kenwoods have the ability to record my transmission for about five or ten seconds and transmit it back to me. That way I can hear how I sound on the radio. This can be a very valuable tool.

I have read and reread the chapter on Voice Recorder Functions in the manual. It seems that you can record a received transmission and are only able to play it back, but not retransmit it. You can record your voice through the microphone and transmit it. But it seems you cannot retransmit received audio.

Am I missing something?

Thanks

Re: 100% power with BPSK31?

VE3FMC <ve3fmc@...>
 

PSK and almost every other mode does not require 100 watts. If you run the Icom 7000 at 100 watts on digital modes you are going to cause a lot of excessive heat in the radio. Sooner or later the finals will go south.

As for 100 watts at RTTY, I would not do that either unless it was for a quick DX exchange. For rag chewing you are better off driving an amp to get a higher output.

I used to operate a lot of Olivia with my 7000. Always kept the output at 20 watts, plus I had a small 12 VDC fan sitting behind the rig to blow some extra air across it.

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.

Is my seventy-one year old mind failing me? Are there other IC-7000's out
there that have are equipped to operate BOTH manual notch filters at the
same time.

W3YY interface with MMTTY

Dick Lindzen
 

I am trying to use the W3YY interface with the MMTTY program to run RTTY on my IC-7000. Can anyone suggest the right settings for MMTTY? So far, I'm unable to get the IC-7000 to transmit. I have no problem with CW keying using CW-Type.

Probably not, however, RTTY is a FSK mode. PSK is a sound mode and
requires maximum linearity. You should run no more than about 1/3 of
your radios maximum power and never any ALC. Set the radio at full
power and set the mic gain or driving audio for 30-40W max. If you push
the power, you'll probably have a very wide signal. Also, use a tone of
1600 or higher to eliminate the possibility of passing harmonics of the
audio through the bandpass filter and having a second, or even third in
some cases, version of your signal show up on everyone's waterfall.
Hehe, I've seen that happen, where the QSO was also present a second time on the waterfall. =8-)

Okay, sounds very logical. I set my audio level to just below the ALC red zone already, so no problem. And I almost never get over 40% power anyway, which reads 25W on the external power meter.

But I had one DX QSO where the other station could only copy me after turning up the power to 75% (40W on the power meter) and I was wondering if going even higher would be bad. Well, not to the rig, but to the other users, as it seems. Something to avoid. =8-)

Thanks!

For what reason do you find it necessary to run such high power with a mode that typically is run with low power?

You might also consider your fellow hams who share the 2-3 KHz spectrum of
several BPSK31 signals. A 'high' power station may kick in the AGC of their
rigs Š which can make other signals disappear.

Hi it may handle the power but that is definitely not the way to operate a database. You will overdrive the signal. 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.
