I use a $6 stereo splitter from Radio Shack.  You're never tuning and adjusting the rig at the same time.   Works like a charm...

Greetings.

I am having an issue with the civ port on the 7000. I have to choose between
a screwdriver antenna tuner (turbo tuner) or rig controller. Cant do both.
Finally bought a ct-17 controller. Still didn't help.

How do I get this to work? My mobile unit is set up as follow: ic 7000,
turbo tuner, hp netbook, rigblaster plug and play and the ct-17 controller.
I must be missing something. When I try to communicate with the
manufacturers of each device I get all of them blaming the other guy for the
problem.

[IC-7000] Re: Icom 7000 not transmitting

Steve W3AHL
 

The driver and final bias & idle currents are only active in TX mode, so they would not affect the RX case temperature.

I have repaired and calibrated quite a few 7K's over the years and haven't seen a case where the factory settings were out of spec, unless a component was obviously failing.

I've only worked on one 7K that had a bad driver board and since it was under warranty I told the owner he should send it to a service center.

I have looked at the operating points of the pre-driver, driver and HF PA FETs on both of my 7K's and they are operating well within the device spec's for class A mode.

I suspect there is a problem that Icom Engineering should address, but I wouldn't hold my breath. There are no statistics available to my knowledge on what the overall 7K failure rate is, much less by component. I'm sure Icom knows, but wouldn't make the data public of course.

Many of the 7K's I've worked on failed due to owner-induced problems (bad feed lines/connectors, no lightning suppressors, poor grounding, faulty power wiring, etc.). Many hams don't know how to properly install and maintain their equipment anymore. But not all failures are the operators' fault.

I have one 7K that ran 24x7 for about 4 years. It had a problem with the UHF FET early on (which was probably my fault!), but nothing since. It is now a full time mobile rig, since I got my K3 and TM-V71A, so it doesn't see as much use.

This could point to the bias setting on the driver or final is incorrect and
it causes premature aging of these parts. It could be that there is an out

When I had mine repaired by Icom France, the technician said that
there was an out of spec transistor used in some IC 7000's that led
to the failure of driver boards. He replaced both and the unit has
been okay for the past year.

I think that it is pretty clear that there was something wrong with
some units, and that replacement of driver boards without correcting
the actual cause of failure was leading to the multiple failures.

I like the IC7000, but that doesn't mean that one has to assume all
problems are due to operating errors.

I had the issue a few months ago and sent it to Scott Malcom for repair. His opinion, though not 100% certain, is that the bias on the drivers is set outside the part manufacturers spec. When he replaced the part he also resets the bias voltage.

Why is that?
Has ICOM thought of a statistical analysis of the failed units,

If it's they way the radios are used, or what, what is it?

Hi All,

I am a 7000 owner also interested in an attachment for panoramic reception.

However, looking at the IC-7000 specs it seems that the 10.7MHz IF is used for WBFM only. My data sheet states that for all the other modes - SSB/CW/RTTY/NBFM - there are three IF's which are are 124.487MHz, 455kHz and 16.1kHz. The last two will be much too narrow for a panadaptor I suspect.

I am working on the assumption that the way to go with the IC-7000 is to use a fully tunable HF SDR - I have an SDR-IQ - and control it via software like Studio 1 plus OmniRig. Tune the 7000 and the SDR tracks along or tune the SDR and the 7000 tracks along. Also, because the 7000 lacks an aux antenna output this means something like the Elad RF/AF switch box if one wants to connect to the same antenna.

This approach does give quite a lot of extra flexibility over an IF panadaptor but with the SDR IQ does not provide for VHF/UHF reception.

Hi Matthew

I had a similar problem with my IC7000....to the point where a fire
extinguisher was needed!

As it was less than 10 days old, my excellent supplier couriered it back to
ICOM in the UK who carried out repairs. As it was under warranty there were
no costs but I thought you may find it useful to know what they put on the
service note.

"repaired by ICOM, replacement driver and PA unit fitted"

Hope thats of some use
