Re: Accessory DIN Socket

The DATA port is the preferred interface for digital modes, which would free up the ACC port for other uses.

How will not using the ACC port for digital eliminate the ability to auto log?  That info is typically obtained from the CI-V interface.

I probably answered my own questions... in that it's not possible (with the IC-7000). Are there any workarounds?.

Good Morning Brian:

The amplifiers in question are:

  • Collins 30L1
  • ICOM IC-2KL

The tuner is:

  • ICOM AT-500

It's not a question of having the appropriate cables and jumpers, I have them. It appears to be more an issue of having a solitary accessory DIN socket on the 7000.

I really like WSJT-X as well as FLdigi, which I run through Commander (part of DXLab Suite of 8 apps).  One of the DXLab Suite of apps is WinWarbler, for RTTY, PSK, and CW.

Hello

As I could see there are positive reviews for xggcomms (and the FTDI chipset that these cables use) so I proceeded with ordering a Digimode-1-Icom cable from their ebay shop. The seller is indeed really helpful and quick to reply as Dale has mentioned.

This cable offers 600:600 ohms isolation for audio, Opto isolation for PTT, connection to CI-V for CAT and PTT using either RTS signal or CAT. The missing feature related to signalink is the external sound card, so I plan to use a 3rd party USB external sound card to separate digital operation sounds from other computer sounds. Audio levels can be configured from the computer.

The reason for my choice is of course money because I payed about 57EUR for this interface. The cheapest signalink I could find would cost around 155EUR and I would still need a CI-V cable to use CAT software which sums to about 3x times the money I payed now!

Regarding the non-muting Mic when using the 13pin socket on IC-7000, I talked about this with the seller and he replied that he can sent me a cable that has a 6pin plug for the DATA socket on the radio. All I needed to do was add a comment about this on the ebay checkout. That is what I did and I am currently waiting to receive and test it.

If anyone can suggest good LINUX software for digital modes or CAT or radio programming or anything else interesting I would really like to hear about it. I already know about FLdigi and CHIRP so I am waiting for other suggestions.

Thank you everyone for your helpful feedback

I am using a ROLAND EDIROL UA-25 ex USB audio interface, everything
directly connected, no optocouplers, no transformers, and a selfmade
USB to serial PTT with one open collector transistor,
also DC connected to a laptop PC with docking station.

It works and there are no line noise and other interferences,
audio clear down to -90dB.
But it took me quite a lot of work to get the noise down.
Shielding and grounding are my specialty :-)
I only want to say, optcouplers and transformers may help or not,
depending on one's electronics skills.

I was tuning across 20 the other day and all of a sudden the freq just locked up.
I tryed the other bands and the same problem. I first checked the Lock button to make sure I didn't hit it by mistake but No. So I tried a complete reset of the CPU. I got an "All Clear" message but the issue was still there. No matter what I do I can't clear it. The receiver is working but I can't change freq. When I try the last 2 digits of the freq change but return the where they were. No change. After the reset the readout on 20 is 14,100.49.
Has anyone else had this problem and what did you do to fix it or do I have to send it to Paul??

I’ve been using an Xggcomms cable for the IC7000 for approx. 2 years now and find they are an excellent choice and work perfectly . I also found the designer gave excellent after sales support as well. I can thoroughly recommend them.

There are some products similar to the Signalink that provide more connections to the radio. For example, the West Mountain Radio Rigblaster Advantage - with a single USB - provides the audio, CI-V (CAT), RTTY and Key connections.

Otherwise you use the Signalink for audio and a separate serial port for CI-V.

You can use a cheap sound card interface but it will not key the radio via VOX and won’t provide isolation against ground hum. Having said that, I use CI-V commands to key and unkey.

There is some programming software for programming memories. Don’t know if there is software for Linux.

Triantafyllos:

I can only tell you what has worked well for me.  The Signalink USB was essentially plug'n'play here using the 6-pin data port.  TX/RX level adjustments are a little bit sensitive using that port, but not excessively so.  Should you find them difficult to adjust, workarounds are detailed in the Signalink documentation. Thie MIC mutes (so you don't have to reduce MIC gain), and you can operate just fine without a CAT cable if you don't mind doing the "traditional" functions manually.  But, a CAT cable will allow band changes, etc., by software command.

I am not familiar with the CAT cables you reference, but would suggest that you seek a cable using the FTDI chipset.  I know some of the cheaper cables use something else and may amount to a false economy.

Digital Modes and CAT on IC7000


Mon Jan 22, 2018 4:22 pm (PST) . Posted by:

Hello everyone

Can someone provide some getting started info for digital modes and CAT on IC7000?

I want to use modes like PSK31,SSTV,WSJT,Echolink,RTTY and others.
For this I think I will use fldigi because I mostly work on Linux and as far as I found out this is the most well known software for digital modes in linux.
What cable connections do I need for this to work?

I would also like to remotely control my radio.
What software can I use for this on linux?
Can the same software and connections be used also for programming the radio (ex. memories)?

While searching I found different interfaces saying that they will do these jobs (with price ascending order).
I have found cheap cables on ebay for CAT and Tx/Rx audio.
I have also come across xggcomms cables - http://www.xggcomms.com/page11.htm http://www.xggcomms.com/page11.htm
I finally came across the signalink usb - http://www.tigertronics.com/ http://www.tigertronics.com/

Signalink as it seems is very popular and with many happy users.
Has anyone used the xggcomms cables?
Or cheap ebay cables are good enough for the job?

Signalink is a sound card by itself, leaving the main computer sound card free for other uses.
But I guess one could pay a lot less money for the other cables and get a 5$ external usb sound card which would result in the same configuration, what do you think?

Another question is if I should use the 6 pin or the 13 pin socket for connections?
What is the difference of these 2 ports?
I have read about MIC not muting when using 13pin port.
Does this mean that noise from the room around the radio will get picked up together with the digital signal?
Is a separate 3.5mm CI-V cable also required for the above mentioned operations?

Thank you in advance for the help,
Triantafyllos

What cable connections do I need for this to work? Use a SignaLink USB connected to the Data cable, do not use the ACC.

I would also like to remotely control my radio.  I use RemoteHams (RCForb Client)  with DXLab Suite (both are free)
What software can I use for this on linux?
Can the same software and connections be used also for programming the radio (ex. memories)?  Try RT Systems, I tried CHIRP but was unable to find the IC-7000.   I gradaully learned how to program every aspect of the radio by reading the manual.  Programming Repeaters and Satellites (and naming the memory channel) was the last thing I learned to do.  In hind sight, it is pretty easy to do that.

While searching I found different interfaces saying that they will do these jobs (with price ascending order).
I have found cheap cables on ebay for CAT and Tx/Rx audio.
I have also come across xggcomms cables - http://www.xggcomms.com/page11.htm

I found several that didn't work, including one from West Mountain Radio.  And I bought the last two from a guy in Poland for $6 each (they only do CI-V very well, no sound interface)


Signalink as it seems is very popular and with many happy users.
Has anyone used the xggcomms cables? Yes, my first and one of my favorite cables.
Or cheap ebay cables are good enough for the job?  I have also built the CI-V interface from a couple of transistors (schematics can be found (Google CI-V interface schematics)  its just a voltage level converter.

Signalink is a sound card by itself, leaving the main computer sound card free for other uses.
But I guess one could pay a lot less money for the other cables and get a 5$ external usb sound card which would result in the same configuration, what do you think? Yes, many use the $10 USB sound cards, I like the SignaLink USB and its TX, RX, and Delay knobs.

Another question is if I should use the 6 pin or the 13 pin socket for connections?  the 6 pin Data socket works better but my xggcomms units used the 13 pin ACC socket. 
What is the difference of these 2 ports?  SignaLink recommended the 6 pin socket.  I had no problem using the ACC socket with the IC-718 but I got a hum with the xggcomms unit on the IC-7000 and I sent a few Windows sounds over the air.  It can still happen with a seperate sound card.  Understanding the control panel sound window in XP, 7, 8, and 10 can avoid trouble.  One, make your radio sound card the "Default Communications" Play and Record Device.  Always turn on the radio before the PC so the PC will alway find the radios sound card (if the radio has a USB -built-in sound card, and I think this works with other sound cards also).
I have read about MIC not muting when using 13pin port.  Yes, that was probably what caused the sound problem with my xggcomms unit.  You could alway unplug the mic but who wants to do that?
Does this mean that noise from the room around the radio will get picked up together with the digital signal?
Is a separate 3.5mm CI-V cable also required for the above mentioned operations?  xggcomms makes a cable with both; CI-V and Line and Mic 3.5mm plugs (my workstation PC has a Line in (green) and an Line Out (blue) jack)
