Setting up radio to scan a-e to scan

Chris McTavish <rda734@...>
 

Hi all this is driving me nuts.
I I have the RTS software for the radio and I can’t get it to work with the ARRL repeater software I have tried downloading a image of the “a” bank and then using the ARRL software to create a route of no more than 96 repeaters to upload to the “A” bank what happens is the radio did it at first then it stopped doing it and now I cannot even go to the other banks.  It keeps looking for my KENWOOD radio is there any way that I may could have knocked out my memory templates in the radio?
Does anybody have advice?

thank you,

If you do use an external monitor be sure to have the monitor unplugged at the mains before plugging in to the radio video out.

I have seen one that was damaged from a voltage spike and took out the Logic board.

Set up an external monitor of appropriate size (maybe 7 to 14 inch diagonal {maximum}).  I use a 7 inch Sharper Image battery set that KB0XA used to make up a set of cables for direct connction to the 7000.  It's what I use in my Go-Box for Field Day.  Monitor MUST accept composite video.  An older analog TV would work just fine.

I'm quite sure that Don has quite doing these kits, though.

All,

Several weeks ago I took my IC-7000 to Galveston and used it to activate the Tall Ship Elissa for Museum Ships Weekend.  Our station was setup on the pier along side the ship under an awning.  Bright sun streamed in from all sides.  The display of the IC-7000 was not really visible.  I made a shade from a cardboard box, which helped but was not satisfactory.  I was able to use the logging software on my laptop to get things up and running, but the situation was not a good one.  I'm looking for any suggestions to improve the situation for future outdoor operation,

Thanks in advance,

Robie - AJ4F

I always used an external monitor (7" was best resolution). I even used a larger monitor on field days so others could see it better. Good luck.....

Yesterday I found out that the HRO store in NH had 6 in stock. Now they only have 5. Thanks for everyone's help.


Re: Ic-7000 separation kit

Mark Gilligan
 

A Cat 5 cable has 8 wires while there are 10 pins for the connectors for the separation cable.

 

Consider connecting two separation cables in series.  The connectors are compatible.  In addition to the 1444 the normal cable is slightly shorter which might be useful if your desired length is less than 30 feet.

Re: Where is and how to replace the coin sized memory battery inside the IC-7000

Keith Kaiser
 

Thanks everyone. 

I think I understand now that the battery is for the clock more so than the memories. I don’t know if I want to replace it or not, the clock is not that important. 

I did order it, it cost about $10 so when it arrives I may open up the radio and take a look. The advise of just cutting the leads and re-soldering seems the best so if I decided to do it at all that is the method I’ll use.

I did Google the part of course but the only place to order the ‘correct’ battery is from Icom. DigiKey and other radio stores did not have it. Some had never even heard of the radio having one. But good advise from Ray Novak lead me to the Icom parts store. Thanks Ray

Is this the "battery" you are asking for?
This is not a battery, but a rechargeable accumulator and it is located
in the Logic Unit.

Hi

You can find the battery at DigiKey

A link in french but Google is your friend....

There is no internal lithium battery
False, there is a soldering battery inside.

I suppose if you needed a longer length it's possible to cut and extend with similar cabling    I've never tried it though.

Does anyone make a separation cable that is longer than the original. Traded trucks and need one that is about three feet longer than the original cable or will have to put radio under front seats with two other radios.

It is a rechargable cell that is soldered in. To replace it you will have to remove the circuit board.

Can't speak to the 7000 specifically but on other equipment I've replaced the battery I just cut the tabs on the existing cell and solder the tabs of the new battery onto the cut leads.

That is the clock chip backup for the time display. It is a rechargable cell that is soldered in. To replace it you will have to remove the circuit board.
This begs the question... do you really care about the time display?
If your rig is loseing its menu setting and memory frequencies you have a more serious issue.
