Bluetooth interface

Hi all,
I am buying a "Bluetooth interface" for my Ic-7000.
Anyone had experience using this? and what software/s you recommend using Windows 10?  
Photos attached.
Kindly regards

Re: Cant change or enter Final Idle Cur(430Mhz) in service menu

Hi Spiros
The loss of driver idle current occurred while I was going through the service menu setup. It was just over 2A, so I decided to bump it up to 2.5A. First you have to dial the current back to zero to measure the baseline current, and then dial it back up to add 2.5A to the baseline. At that point the process setup process hung, with the current intentionally dialed back to zero.
I hope its just a software glitch, and not failure of the driver. As far as I know, the UHF was working.

Hi Ian,
the most likely cause is that the RD60HUF1 is in slow death situation or its damaged and you have to change it.

Cant change or enter Final Idle Cur(430Mhz) in service menu

Ian Benjamin VE9HB
 

Hi everyone, first post in this group.
I am working on an IC7000, have the original problem pretty well fixed, but managed to create a problem for myself.
I went through the TX adjustment menu and did all the preceding Idle Current setups just fine.
The last item in the DRIVE/FINAL IDLING CURRENT,   "430MHz idle current"  was more of a problem.
The current value I found was a bit low, so I decided to set it to the correct value, even though the original problem was in the HF bands.
(I know, I know, if it ain't broke.......)
At first I couldn't get the current to drop to zero. Not sure how I managed to enter the 00 current setting, either by exiting the service menu, or by power cycling the radio. Now, I cant enter a non-zero bias current, or put back the original value.. Have tried all kinds of control, menu sequences, no luck.
Has anybody encountered or fixed this glitch?

BTW, original problem was low HF power on 20m band. Turned out the 20m band drew more current than the others, and tripped the overcurrent protection which was set too low. Drawing 20.5A @ 100W out.

Thanks

Re: Microphone

Joe
 

I think this question might originate from CB radio days where the mike had to be plugged in for the radio to work? I seem to remember some AM CB sets that required the mike to be plugged in because the PTT switch not only keyed the radio but did some fancy switching of the audio circuit. The same circuit was used for the receive loudspeaker and the transmit AM modulation.

Anyone else remember those days? Or am I having yet another day of cranium flatulence?

Re: Microphone

 

As far as I can tell from the schematics there is no problem with the mike in either position on no mike at all.
That would apply to receive or transmit as there are digital communications modes that do not require the mike for operation

Re: Is it possible get a tension on N connector in RX mode for external preampli for vhf / uhf ?

You can make your own Bias Tee.  See this link: http://www.hayseed.net/~jpk5lad/K5LAD%20Memories/Vols%2031-35/Memories--Vol33.htm

I would build a Bias Tee in a metal box because of noise pickup, or radiation on a transmitter cable.

There are more links at the bottom of the above web page link.

For a receiver bias tee, a ceramic capacitor would be a good choice.  For a transmitter Bias Tee, I would use 3 or 4 ceramic capacitors in parallel to handle the current, and not overheat.  A ceramic doorknob for a transmitter cable would be best, if available.

HI Chris,
when you switch to an hf band, obviously you receive on hf. However, if you are in MEM mode,  you transmit on the frequency of the current memory channel, which in your case is likely to be on 2m.
Switch to VFO mode to solve the issue.

Re: Value of ICOM 7K question

Joe
 

I have two R7000 receivers here and one had a display problem. All dots. I left it plugged in and on for a week and now the display works fine. Probably a bad capacitor(s) that got somewhat "reformed" and now works. It should have a capacitor replacement job sometime in the future.

There are capacitor replacement kits on eBay for around $20 that are about 60 capacitors to replace. Not something to look forward to.

Re: Value of ICOM 7K question

 

How much will it cost to fix the unknown problems?
That will determine the value.
I have three, two I gambled that I could fix them at a reasonable expense.
Some fixes get expensive, especially if you send them to Icom.
However they will give you an estimate at a reasonable cost.
Call them ans ask.
Of course you could try to power them up and see what the symptoms are and ask here if anyone has any ideas.
Your questions is how much is this unknown thing worth, condition unknown, repair cost unknown.

I presume you mean the IC-R7000, Dwight? It probably won't translate to US values, but one of the major UK ham outlets currently has a used one for £400. Limited memories and a slow scanning speed by current standards, but still a very nice radio. 
If you can narrow any fault down to individual modules, note that there are usually plenty of these on eBay.

Any idea what the value of each is. Faults are unknown at this time.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
