Using RUMtrol7K-RT v 2.1 Beta 10

Keith Kaiser
 

Computer: MacBook Pro running OSX 10.9.4
Rig: IC-7000
Device: KeySpan USA-19HS
Device2: CI-V cable
Sofware: RUMtrol7K-RT v 2.1 Beta 10 dated 31-Jan-2009

I use my MacBook Pro for all my digital work with fldigi. It works great. I’m saying this part because I want you to know I can and do use other software to control my radio all the time. The settings are not unique to me or unfamiliar.


But when I switch over to RUMtrol7000 to try and connect to the radio, load memories or change settings... it just won’t connect or talk to the radio.

I have “KeySerial1” selected as the Port.
Baud set to 19200
Enable Xon is checked
Enable CTS: default checked
Enable DTR is checked
Poll Time: 152ms
Show Comm Errors is checked.

If neither of the right hand options are checked and I press OK, it does not connect to the radio.
If I check the ‘Set RTS Line’ and click OK, it throws the radio into transmit mode.
If instead (above not checked) and I check the ‘Set DTR Line’ and click OK, nothing happens. I am not connected to the radio.
If I check both of the above at the same time and click OK, again the transmitter is thrown into transmit mode.

There are a lot of combinations of the 4 accessible check boxes but no combination lets me read/write or talk to the radio. 
If I switch the Port setting to the KeySpan device (instead of the KeySerial 1) once again various combinations put the radio into transmit, some don’t.

In short I guess I’m wondering what setting in RUMtrol7000 will let me read/write and connect to my radio?

Appreciate any feedback you may have, thanks in advance.

Hey. I ran OSPOTA at forked run state park using an IC-7000 as well.
 
With all the storms in the area the DSP in the radio was worth it's weight in gold.
 
And yes, my clock doesn't keep time either.    If the battery was in a coin cell holders I'd swap it but honestly I never really expect a radio to have a clock anyway so I just use a cheapo atomic clock set to GMT or let the logging software sort it out.

The battery is on the Logic board, inside the shielded enclosure that plugs into the top of the Main board.  It is simple to replace with a standard soldering iron.  But you should protect against ESD damage to the Logic board by wearing a grounded wrist strap and avoid working on a plastic surface (cardboard is OK).  don't use a plastic solder sucker.

It's available from Digi-Key for $2.15.

 
It is a rechargeable manganese lithium battery, so don't replace with a typical lithium cell from the local store, as it may explode eventually.  The battery will corrode if the charging  voltage is too high.  The data sheet doesn't state what the failure mode is when the battery won't charge.  I agree that it should be replaced, unless an Icom service center says that it won't leak eventually.

My oldest radio is >7 years old and the battery is still OK, but it usually has power applied even if it isn't "ON", so the battery is always recharging.  It does only keep the clock on when power is removed.  If you set the clock and leave the 12 VDC power on, the time should stay set, even if the radio is powered off.

At some point you really should open the radio and make sure the battery
isn't leaking.

Sometimes the batteries in the old Kenwood TM-741 and TM-742 front
panel/control head leaked after they'd aged. If not caught in time, the
leaked chemicals would drip on the pc board and eat up some of the fine
traces, either making for a very expensive repair or ruining the control
head altogether. You really don't want to take that chance with your 7000.

Re: [IC-7000] Setting Speech Compression -- Icom 7000 and Icom 7200

Jim K5JG <k5jg@...>
 

The original poster wasn't making a comparison of the two radios, but rather the discrepancy between the two manuals on how to properly set up the speech compression level.

It turned out that the version of 7000 manual he had was incorrect and had since been updated.

Yes, but I was hoping some of the users out there were more clever than the less than complete manual Icom provides.

W1NV qrv <w1nv@...>
 

My manual reads distorted also but I set the speech compressor to level 2-3, ALC is set to the end but I have so much mic gain that I use the monitor function to listen to myself. There is very little difference from 40% to 65% mic gain. Turn off the monitor as I left it on and was squealing in the FM mode. Have a close friend monitor your voice as you adjust your ALC, speech compressor and mic gain.

The 7000 manual is in error. It is correct in newer versions. My manual is correct, the same as the 7200.

Resistance is futile.

I am trying to understand how to properly

Should the directions
for setting compression be the same, or are the ways
compression is handled different in the two transceivers.
 
If they should be the same,
which is correct?  If different, what is the
difference?
On the 7000

below the ALC zone, your transmitted voice may be
distorted."
On the 7200
manual, page 57 (or 6-7) of the manual, "NOTE: If the

distorted."
Thanks for
any help you can give me to understand how I should be
handling the setting.

Re: CAT Macro for Voice Recording?

That question has been asked several times before over the years, with no solutions posted.  There's nothing in the CAT command chart that provides that function in the 7K.

MDSR station gets new antenna - results of WSPR propagation test

MDSR station gets new antenna - results of WSPR propagation test


Hi Everybody;

We have upgraded the antenna on the MDSR test station. The G5RV was retired and replaced with a "Double Bazooka" made out of RG-58. This antenna is a horizontal dipole, but uses coaxial cable instead of antenna wire. The advantage of coax, instead of regular antenna wire is the reduction of the wave propagation inside the coax. This velocity factor allows for shorter cable length - in case of RG-58 solid core insulation the velocity factor is 66% - which shortens the antenna significantly.  The antenna was build to be resonant at 40m. Using a antenna meter to measure the antenna the resonance is actually just a bit below 7MHz. Interestingly enough the antenna is also resonant at 21MHz and at 54MHz. Unfortunately the antenna does not work well on 14MHz. The plan is to build another "Bazooka" specifically for 20m. The antenna is very effective and easy to build.
For more details check this link:
http://www.hamuniverse.com/n4jaantennabook.html
 see chapter X section 5


The MDSR system allows the upgrade of a conventional radio into an IF SDR. By using your existing station and your computer this upgrade can be done very cost effective.
Please check the MDSR website:
http://users.skynet.be/myspace/mdsr

and sign up for updates on the MDSR project at this Yahoo user group:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/mdsradio/info


In order to get an idea of how well this new coaxial antenna works we have set up the MDSR to work with WSPR at 40m (7.0386MHz). The test run at night (local time) after the 40m band opened. With only 20W of power The MDSR (FT-950) was able to connect with other stations as far away as Australia, Japan and Germany!

Re: Extension cable

Steve W3AHL
 

None of the other Icom mobile radios list the OPC-1443 separation cable as an option in the icomamerica.com web site.

Do other Icom radios use the same extension cable that goes between the face and body of the IC 7000 or is it unique to the IC 7000 ?

If so , which ones ?


Thanks
