Re: [IC-7000] Temperature question

Heat has been an issue with the IC-7000 so I would recommend mounting the main unit in an area with good air flow. I have mine mounted below the front passenger seat in my F150 with the head on a "stalk" mount attached under a bolt for the front seat next to the center console.

Subject: [IC-7000] Temperature question

Hello all!


I'm a new ham and just bought an IC-7000 off ebay for use in the car. I'm wondering - how hot does the rig get, and how much airflow does it need? Is it safe to install in a small, fully enclosed compartment, or does it need good airflow? I anticipate using it primarily for HF-SSB and VHF-FM.


Thanks,

I think the head being attached contributes significantly to the radio temperature, and some units tend to run hotter than others. Remote head and a ventilated enclosure for the body would be the best.

I would definitely NOT put this radio in a small unventilated compartment.  It runs fairly warm (to the touch) and restricting air movement would probably be fatal to the radio.
Consider mounting under a seat and use a remote head.

Hi...best not to enclose the rig. It does need airflow. In my

car I have the control head near me mounted on the

dash and the radio itself under the driver's seat. So, it's

not enclosed and gets A/C in the hot weather and actually

gets just a little heat if the wx gets cool (I live in Florida

so the A/C is most important as the car can get really

hot before the A/C kicks in).  If you use the rig and

just listen it won't get very warm at all but once you start

transmitting it will get quite warm. Just make sure it gets

some air.

It depends on your duty cycle and whether or not you're running it at full power, but I would not be installing it in a small sealed compartment without reasonable airflow. I have mine remotely installed in the boot - I guess that's the trunk in the USA (on the back of the fold-down rear seat) and I've had no problems, even with the boot full of luggage (but I do make sure the heat-sink and fan are kept clear).

 

It is a great mobile radio - you'll get lots of enjoyment from it!

 

Rodney.

Needs good airflow. I have mine in the back of the SUV mounted above an AT180. The assembly sits on a cushion of bubble wrap for impact and vibration isolation. Never had a heat issue in the years I’ve had it in there.

Well Dave, I am sorry to hear the circumstances of your selling.  It is certainly understandable.  However, my own experience over many years has been, it seems nearly every time I got rid of something (most anything), I deeply regretted it later on, sometimes years later.  I wish you the best.

Re: [IC-7000] no audio from onboard speaker?

D C *Mac* Macdonald
 

My guess about a "cause" would be accidental excessive 
side pressure on the inserted external speaker plug 
which "broke" the internal switching mechanism. 
 
These miniature jacks have proven to be quite fragile!

My guess... gunk inside the connector.  When a plug is inserted,
the plug holds open two contacts that connect the audio signal
to the internal speaker.  I would suggest a small diameter
(bottle style) brush with a very slight amount of DeOxit run
inside the connector, with the rig turned off.

Re: no audio from onboard speaker?

Steve W3AHL
 

That generally indicates:
  1. The internal speaker is defective or unplugged from the Main board.
  2. More likely, one of the external audio receptacles is damaged.  Either the internal switch contact is bent or one of the SMT leads was pulled loose from the PCB, due to excessive force on the plug or cable.
The receptacles are only availabe in the US from Icom.

I have 4 switching supplies for ham use. 3 are server power supplies & present no RFI whatsoever.
1 is 3 in series & 2 series stacks in parallel of adjusted 5VDC LED 100A supplies. It is all neatly packaged in an old PC case with a CLC filter that honestly wasn't needed. I use that to run a 1KX solid state amp & even at full tilt, bypassing the filtering, it is RFI quiet.

Hate to have to bring you into the 21st century, but there have been quiet smps's for some time now. 

I use a variety of smps and linear, and even with my EME system, there's no discernible difference with a quality smps. 

As with anything, buy cheap crap and you get crap performance.

I've used a shack SMPS since 2004.  Any noise it generates is well below the local noise floor on all bands, and voltage regulation has been spot on.   With the high frequency of hot days (35C+) up here in summer and a significant amount of 24x7 gear, it's not an environment I want to run a linear PSU in, too much hassle cooling the darned thing!
