Bob and George,

                Not necessarily so. There are 3 settings for the squelch control: AUTO, SQL, RF+SQL. Either of the second two settings will present familiar squelch operation in SSB, CW and RTTY. Make sure your squelch setting in QS - OTHERS is set to AUTO. You can also simply reset the entire microprocessor as AUTO is the default setting.

 

Thank you,

About the squelch that I originally suggested; if it is happening on ssb it probably isn't the squelch. If it is happening on FM it could be.

Hi Eddie,

I am happy to suggest this:

https://www.niftyaccessories.com/icom_guides.php

They are quick instructions on how to do many things with your radio.  I got one to help me navigate the menu system of the IC 7000 and it is very good!

I am not related to the manufacturer, but only a very satisfied customer.

Re: IC-7000 Intermittent recieve

Charles Scott <cscott@...>
 

George:

Is it just receive or are you loosing transmit? I have a problem with my IC-7000 that may not be what yours has but might be interesting.

My IC-7000 that I've used mobile for years developed a problem that was both TX and RX on HF only. It was intermittent, particularly on bumps, but getting worse and didn't matter which band I was on. I thought it was the T/R relay between the amp and the filter selection, which also carries RX signal.

When I got into it I found that it was the logic module on the top of the radio that was intermittent and causing that relay to not pull in, and perhaps other issues.  I pulled the logic module and cleaned the two connectors that plug into the board below. That seemed to settle it down. Thought I still had an occasional problem but then found a problem at my antenna. Seems to be good most of the time but think I've seen the problem come up a couple times since, although only for a short time.

I exchanged E-Mail with the Icom tech here in MI and he says this can be a problem with the logic module and the solution is to replace it. The only problem is doing that also requires a full alignment, so the cost of the module and labor is about that of a good used IC-7000. An IC-7100 might work in my vehicle but it's a bigger display and I like how things are setup currently.

I figure I'm going to live with it for now and if it becomes are regular problem again I'll go back in and see if I can't find exactly where the problem is.

Good luck with your radio.

Re: [IC-7000] Re: Icom 7000 Remote operation using HRD

I didnt find any files attached.  Maybe the solution is to take 5V out to the easy digi and use a darlington to trigger (triggered with a small cap and bleeder resistor and the audio signal.  Probably need a pot in series for adjustment) the op iso to maintain the isolation in the circuit.  I think that is important, I have had major problems with rf back into the soundcard and computer.

There are other problems as well that are documented on the Google reference to Digi-Vox.
Added are circuit drawings I have attached below.
I am adding a small sound card that should have a higher sound voltage that will drive the circuit. This is needed to also have a smaller cap to charge so that the VOX will work faster and have less latency.
I am combining the Digi-Easy, the sound card, and serial CAT-IV USB with a small hub to enable a single USB cable to the computer and wiring from the box to the IC-7000 with the lead dress neater.

I'll be checking the settings , squelch, and do a full reset after I install the new ribbons. hopefully this will cure the issue. I'll post the results for the group so in case we see this again it may help someone.

Re: Icom 7000 video cable

 

The cable is easy to make with a 3.5 mm stereo plug and an RCA plug along with some coax.
You could buy a stereo extension or jumper, cut off one end and solder on the RCA plug.
By the way the jacks on the back of the IC-7000 are 3.5 mm. and not 1/8".
A small difference, but on my radio the CAT-IV was intermittent until I swapped the plug for a real 3.5 mm.
The video and speaker out never gave any problems, however.


Re: IC-7000 Intermittent recieve

 

The ribbons are the flat printed circuit ribbon cables that are behind the front panel and do almost all of the interconnect signals between the main board (top) and the PA board (bottom). There are also the same types of cables from the main board to the digital board and through the front chassis to the connector for the front panel.
The internal "wires" in the cable are very very thin and when they are flexed can break internally (ask how I know).
To replace them you have to remove the PA board and unsolder the UHF plugs on the back, unsolder the Driver board, unscrew the final screws holding them to the heat sinks,and work out the power jack and lift it.
While you are there be sure to check the driver board heatsink for compound and you should check the final compound also.

I have an easy digi.  Can I bleed off some of the sound card audio through a resistor and charge a small cap to energize the ptt in the easy digi?  Seems like this would make a remote vox.

The accy input on the back will not send audio to the transmitter unless the accy ptt is low. It also keeps the mike in the rear jack from sending audio to the transmitter during digital transmissions that are enabled by the accy PTT.
If you want to use the VOX in the IC7000 you would have to use the 8 pin mod jack on the rear that the mike normally plugs into.
Basically if you use the 6 pin jack for digital you need to derive the PTT to enable the transmit with audio outside of the radio in the sound card or TNC.
I have been working on this to get the PTT from a vox built into the Digi-Easy instead of the RTS from RS232

Chris,

 

Just as an FYI,

 

I do not believe ICOM makes a cable for this purpose.  If they did, I’m certain it would be quite pricey, as most of their cables.

 

It would be best to get a 1/8’’ male plug to RCA Female adapter (link below), and use a cable similar to the one listed below in the previous e-mail, as your monitor has an RCA video input:

 

Adapter:

Or if you enjoy making up cables, you can “roll your own” with single conductor shielded cable, a male 1/8” plug and a female RCA jack.

 

I would normally route you to Radio Shack, but alas………
