IC-7000 Tutorial

Mister Mike
 

Does anyone know of a tutorial for the IC-7000? I am specifically looking for a learning course with structured lessons to teach an “old school” ham who is used to operating “boatanchors” how to use this radio.

A friend who is a fifty year amateur finally took the plunge and picked up an IC-7000 but finds operating it “overwhelming”. I know the feeling. It took me a long time to learn how to use the menu system. I already suggested he pick up the Nifty Guide but it is, IMHO, more of an “aide memoire” than an actual tutorial.

I believe the Blue is historical and green is Peak.

On my 7000, I have the black background, and the scan bar on the bottom is usually a green bargraph. However, when I use my external RF noise canceller (the internal noise cancelling is turned off) the scan bargraph color is blue. 

Does anybody know what the blue versus green color means?

Oh, wow. In that case, I don't think I'll directly modify this cable. I'll likely trade/sell it sometime this coming month.
I still want to see if I could DIY this cable though, so if anybody has any tips I'd love to hear them!

Hello,

I am in the works of building a mobile setup and I have hit a roadblock, I have a separation cable I got from an estate sale which only has 8 pins, it's not the right cable and the right cable sells on ebay for prices around $100 and up, which seems absurd for a 10 pin pogo cable. Does anybody know if there's any DIY cables out there I can acquire parts for and make myself? I'd like to stay under $40 for this and I'd rather just use the radio head on the radio if the case there's no economically friendly way. I've also attached a picture of the cable I have just to make sure I'm not looking at it the wrong way.

Re: Need to get a separation cable for cheap

 

There was a German who sold an interface that used a HDMI cable between the head and body and I think that there is another that uses an adapter to a CAT-6 cable out now, but you will have to search the depth of the internet to find them. I think that the German source has quit making them now.
All in all I think you will have to pay the price to get one.
I had some that I sold when I sold the last of three IC-7000s
I currently have an IC-7100 to replace it.
I sold them because there are some parts that are no longer available ( as is the case more and more).
I do miss the colorful display! If Icom just made an IC-7150 with color!


Re: Need to get a separation cable for cheap

Hi!

Do you have a 3D printer?  If not you can get these printed at a place like shapeways.com. The summary section has where to get the pins. I’m not sure of the total cost. 


There is a guy in Germany that made some small PCB boards that worked on both ends and used a mini HDMI cable, but no longer has them listed on eBay.  Here is a link to his eBay seller page if you would like to contact him. Again, I don’t remember the cost.

7000 intermittant?

wabate
 

I want to update the group on the solution to my 7000 intermittent problem.  Rather than call it intermittent I should have called it odd behavior that was limited to 6M output.  See my original post below.


Since only 6M was affected, I thought it was a bad connection in the 6M RF circuit.  Not qualified to troubleshoot SMD equipment I finally sent it off to Matt in Michigan.   Fearing a board had to be replaced I was ready to ignore the problem as I don't use the 7000 on 6M typically.  I could not justify spending +/- $600 on a $700 radio.  Much to my surprise Matt found the problem in the 6M low pass filter.  It seems there were two bad capacitors in the filter.  Very happy to find someone who could repair a component on a board rather that replace a complete board.


There are 11 capacitors in that filter and Matt suggested repairing them all as they are not that expensive and they are in each others way.  He also installed Icom driver and PA unit upgrades.  Total cost with shipping and insurance was a little over $200.  The 7000 back to 100%

Very pleased with the outcome.

Bill, K3PGB

Hi All,

After using my 7000 for years Murphy has shown up but in a way that defies my logic.  I typically do not use it on 6M.  I was testing it on 6 and it was recieving well.  Went to transmit (RTTY) full carrier but was only getting 20 watts out and the SWR was max.  Checked the antenna with another rig and the antenna was fine.  Put a dummy load on the 7000 and got the same low output and high SWR.  Puzzled, I tried another dummy and got the same result.  Power was measured with my Bird meter.

This is the goofy part.  Went back to the antenna and maybe one out of three key downs the output went to 80 watts with a decent SWR.  Could not duplicate that anomaly with the dummy load! Thought maybe the antenna relay was intermittent I tried HF and got full output and low SWR into the dummy.  Did not try UHF.

My guess is the SWR sensing circuit is faulty  Is the 6M SWR sensing circuitry different from HF?  I'm a fire and glass guy so limited on what I can do with SMD.


Comment?


73 and TIA,


Bill, K3PGB

Check that VSC is not on. (It will display VSC on the screen next to the frequency) This bit me and has many other 7000 owners.

I have an intermediate receive.  Think it has something to do with the squelch.  Haven’t been able to troubleshoot.

 

Can anyone recommend someone who repairs/aligns the 7000?  Would really appreciate some suggestions.

Also sounds like you may not have readjusted the squelch knob after having it set for “RF” while on sideband. Make sure squelch is just a tic past the white noise going away. This is just a shot in the dark. Sorry if it’s obvious and you’ve already tried that.

Re: IC-7000 Squelch Issues

Did this issue ever get worked out?  I have a system doing the same thing.  Start from scratch and put frequencies in memory and works fine.  Later it looks like everything went to Tone Squelch because I can turn squelch all the OFF and the light shows there's audio, but nothing coming through the speaker.  Get on the repeater and as long as there is a good signal (like it sees the Tone Squelch signal) I get audio out.  Got nothing on HF also because there's no tone.  This is the 2nd time I've had to start from scratch and I just want to figure out how to fix it so it doesn't go to that mode any more.

ALSO......the menu does not show that it's on Tone Squelch.
