Mic cable

Does anyone know where I could source a replacement mic cable for my HM-151? The curly one with RJ-45 ends.

Thanks and 73 de NN4E


Is anyone using their IC-7000 for FSQ on VHF?

Chris - KC9AD
 

I recently discovered that my IC-7000 has the same 6-pin mini-DIN connector as my VHF/UHF Kenwood TM-V71A. So I took my FSQ/FLDIGI cable out of the Kenwood and plugged it into the IC-7000, tuned the rig to 145.580, our local FSQ watering hole frequency, and, VOILA!, FSQ on my IC-7000. Is there anyone else out there doing that? Especially in the Phoenix, AZ area?

Winlink Express works fine with my IC-7000.

Check the Icom, not the early models. The frequency format is different.
Make sure the CI-V address is the same in the radio and in the Winlink setup - by the way, which mode are you using? You have to set it up for each of the HF modes you will use - ARDOP, VARA, etc.
Note that Winlink will not set the frequency for Packet or VARA FM modes.
You checked the baud rate - good.
The DTR/RTS setting is only important for some USB to CI-V adapters. Which adapter are you using?
Some CI-V adapters use old Prolific drivers and will not work with newer versions of Windows - you have to find the old driver and load it manually.
I don’t remember if “TRANCEIVE ON” has to be set in the IC-7000 for Winlink. It’s required for HRD so I have it on.

With those settings when you open a session in, say, ARDOP, and then select a station from the updated station list, the radio should switch to that frequency.

If that’s working, then make sure that PTT is set to use the CI-V method, not a aerial port. If that’s set up right then the radio should go into and out of transmit when you START the session.

The last step is to get the audio connected, if you haven’t already.

Good luck!

OK! It took a Hard Reset of the CPU to get it working.
I tested it with the IC-7100 settings, Icom Amateur Radio's and Icom Amateur Radios (Early)
settings and disabled the RTS and DTR and they all work.

                     Tnx for the Help 73 de Steve KB6HOH


Re: NO CAT Control IC-7000 using Winlink

 

I used my IC-7000 a good bit with Winlink, no problem. 
Use the ICOM Amateur (not early) setting and the port and baud rate same as WSJT-X would. The audio needs to be the same as well.
If I remember correctly.

Hello All,

I'm looking at putting my IC-7000 online as my Winlink HF Gateway.
There is NO Radio listing in RMS Express for the 7000. I have tried the Icom Amateur Radio's and the Early version as well.
I have the right CI-V# and Baud rate configured. I have turned on/off the RTS/DTR with no luck.
I have installed the FLdigi, FLrig control software and that works just fine.
Anybody out there that is using the IC-7000 and Winlink Express and or the Winlink Tri-Mode software.

Winlink requires a "modem", which one do you select?
It is in the "open session" edit field.

well, got the final verdict on my 7000.....Matt from SAR in Michigan called today, turns out it was NOT the finals NOR the driver board.....apparently a diode that biases the finals went bad, Matt said he never saw that one before.....again, very prompt and courteous service from Matt in SAR Technical in Michigan, he just received my radio Friday, and called me about 10 am this morning !!!!

Those are metal shields and there isn’t any heat sink compound on them. The compound is on the bottom of the transistors. 7 volts is way too high and nearly zero is way too low. Sounds like both of them are shot. Base on the amount of damage you are seeing, make sure the current sensing resistors are good. Usually, a visual inspection is all you need. Don’t forget to set the bias on each transistor when you replace them.

On TX, I get almost 7 volts on 1 final.....less than half a volt on the other.....looks like that area got very hot at one time....should there be heat sink compound between the metal plate on top of the finals and the case? The VHF/UHF finals all have "springs" on them to contact the case, not so on the hf finals ?

25 watts kind of indicates one of the PA transistors has failed. Measure the gate voltage in TX. It should be anywhere between 3.5 and 4.5 volts. It should also be zero in RX.

Only getting about 25 watts out or so on HF, VHF/UHF is fine, full power.....Its NOT the power cord, I've tried a couple different ones, same result, and those cords work fine with my 7300, I had a problem with the 7000 before, actually no power out on HF and SARS in Michigan, replaced maybe the driver transistor, is it common for this part to go bad?

Jamie, download the Service manual, cut off the part of the schematics of the finals from it, and put your measured values at the wires around the transistors. Show the part of the schematics then. People from electronics communicate via schematics - they may help you when they see the values at the specific nodes...

low power out on HF

Mark Langenfeld
 

Very first thing: check the fuses in the DC supply cable for oxidation.  They are notorious for that and, when contaminated, cause a significant voltage drop that can manifest as a loss of TX power out.  This may or may not be your problem, but it is a simple check that could (if the culprit is found there) save you headaches and money.

The IC7000 is known to develop issues with the driver and the finals also. Even in this group there are several posts about this topic. Otherwise Google is your friend.

This is not the driver in question, it is common to HF and V / UHF.
To prevent this failure, do not use more than 30W in FM or numerical
mode (FT8, etc)
like all the 100W tranceivers.

http://radioamateur.forumsactifs.com/f36-ic-7000

With the appropriate care, the 7000 is capable of working 100% power,
that is, 100 watts on HF , 50 w on VHF and 30 w on UHF,
in FT8 with its (the FT8) 50% duty cycle.
All those "don'ts" and "do nots" are based on unsufficient technical
knowledge.

As for the original poster's complaint, his 7000 does not deliver the
rated capacity power, yes, there is perhaps a hardware problem
and you will possibly have to replace the driver and/or the finals.
I cannot remotely diagnose the fault. Must have my hands on :-)

Sorry for being nasty, but those "don't do this" pull my nerves.
