Looking for the remote head, very minimum, I am needing the display unit board in side.

I have two of the mics, both with faulty cables.  I bought four on Amazon, two replacements and two spares.  They seem to be holding up well.

Doug --

HRO(Ham Radio Outlet) has a Yaesu CT-39 cable with a 6-pin mini on one end and bare wires on the other end at $9.95 US.

AMAZON has a Yaesu CT-39A cable with a 6-pin mini on one end and bare wires on the other end at $17.88 US, and a good selection of DB-9 connectors, male and female, solder types and breakout types, at seemingly reasonable prices.

Shipping across the US/Canada border will, I am sure, add some other fees/taxes.

Hope this helps.

For what it's worth, you can use any standard ethernet cable (Cat 5e, etc). I realize that it's not a curly cord, or what is often called a heavy duty cable, but I've used that for years going mobile with my HM-151 mic. My cord is a FLAT (not curly) 14 foot long ethernet cable I bought on Amazon over 10 years ago, going from my 7000 head mounted in my glove compartment to the radio body mounted under the driver's seat, and it still works fine. That was a solution for me because I didn't have enough room for both the mic and the original cord that came with it in the glove compartment, and the ethernet cable lays flat and takes little room. I "bunch" it up so it also fits in the glove compartment when it's not in use. It works for me, and you probably have several spare ethernet cables in your home in these "online" days. Just a suggestion.

Find the part number from your documentation and then send an email to ICOM (Parts@...) and ask them for a price quote. They normally respond quite quickly. I was in need of a PTT switch and after several eBay failures, I went to ICOM. I should have just gone to them first.

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?


Re: NO CAT Control IC-7000 using Winlink

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.

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.

Re: low power out on HF

Jamie WW3S
 

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.

 

Thank You

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? Any thing to watch out for to prevent it from happening in the future.
