Hi all, Despite all efforts I can not get my HRD to connect with my Ic7000. It has before sometime ago. Ok Cvi is off on rig address 70h, 300 baud on both rig and software.Tried Rts etc ticked and unticked. It still will not connect. I should have made a not of the settings I had prev I usly. 
Any thouhouts folks.

Re: [IC-7000] STuck in Xmit / loss of coordination between rig and FLRIG

Ryan Scott Bardsley <rbardsley@...>
 

What type of computer are you using? I have experienced the same problem on my Mac and IC-7410 with the same programs. I just got the SignaLink to try to remedy it. I can get 2 clean TXs before it loses connectivity and gets stuck transmitting with no output. Happens in both Fldigi and WSPR-X consistently. 

I think it's a software issue. 

I am searching for a solution as well. I'll let you know if I find anything. 

Best,

KC1EIL, Ryan

Thanks, Bud, but unfortunately it's not that simple. 


No problem with missing from macro, and no way to toggle back to receive with either fldigi or flrig.  The 7000 TX light stays on.

You should be able to toggle manually from TX to RX to make the red light go off on the Signalink and radio to unkey.

Problem 1:  The most disturbing problem is that sometimes the radio gets stuck on Xmit.  The red light in on, but no rf is being sent out.  The only way I have found to reset it is to briefly tap the power button.  This happens only when doing HF/Digital.

Problem 2:  The other problem, which I have also posted in the fldigi group, is that fldigi and flrig loose coordination with the radio, so that changes in frequency on either do not result in changes on the others.

Thanks for any advice you can offer on either or both problems.

Ham Radio Now releases the MDSR presentation at TAPR2015

Alex Schwarz
 


Hi Everybody;

While I was giving my presentation during the TAPR show last fall in Chicago it was recorded by Gary Pierce (KN4AQ). He just has released the talk now on YouTube. As a mater of fact Ham Radio Now has released all the talks from the 2015 TAPR show. They are all worth watching....

 

Why is the MDSR system important for my station?

The MDSR software and the LIF - BiLiF system allows you to upgrade your existing transceiver and computer to an IF-SDR. All this at a very affordable cost. Check out our website:

http://users.skynet.be/myspace/mdsr

or join the Yahoo user group at:

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/mdsradio/info

If you are interested in seeing it too, here is the link to my talk.:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jocS1Th3l0

A big thank you to Gary and his team for the great videos and the professional touch on the editing and great sound recording.

 

All the best and 73;

 

The MDSR Team

Re: [IC-7000] Screwdriver Antenna Controller

Steve W3AHL
 

The issue here is not about one computer talking to multiple radios via a serial port.  The user wants to have a tuner controller and a computer talk to the same radio over one CI-V port on the 7K.  Electrically, the open collector circuit works.  But having two controllers trying to talk at the same time to the 7K could result in unpredictable results at times.  This won't hurt the CI-V port, losing control of the tuning process isn't very desirable.  

Some software polls the radio when you would think it would be quiet.  

Steve, W3AHL

Hi 
so why should it not work a Ci-v port has different addresses for each device so it can communicate to each as an individual unit. 
                                                           you use Usb and blue tooth which is serial addressing.

I'm looking to use a Tarheel antenna with my ic-7000 and need an antenna controller. What I'd like, ideally, is a fully automatic controller that uses the radio's tuner button. I don't want separate control heads for the controller that I need to deal with.

The TurboTuner -2 fits the bill, but in addition to using the tuner connector on the radio,most also uses the CI-V port, which I'd prefer to keep free for rig control.

Is anyone aware of an automatic antenna controller that works off the radio's tuner controls but doesn't use the CI-V port?

Graham <muzzo@...>
 

I think the OP was meaning remote operation via internet/IP many 100's
and even 1000's of Km's. The clue is in the phrase "Take it along with you"


Is there a way to remove the front face of the IC7000 and take it
along for remote operation like the TS-480 radio can do ?



The IC-7000 has 2 separation cables available an 11' and a 16'.
The OPC-1444 is the 16 foot cable. Works well for me.

Hi the icon 7000 has a remote wired connection system which works fine. having used it in a 4x4 for the last 6 years. with the advantage the microphone can also be used in the head unit. however i suspect this is not about wired operation. As yet none of the amateur radios has attained actual wireless operation. yeas claim a system which has yet to be proved positive it actually works.                                                      Best regards Robert G6LLP

That’s my understanding… the handbook many years back had a RS-232 to CI-V interface that would support up to 3 rigs. The outputs were just paralleled for the three jacks.
