Re: [IC-7000] I hear audio in the speaker when transmitting

Randy Thomson
 

In the "old days" this could occur when a tube in the audio output developed
"microphonics." That is, a slight vibration of the tube would vibrate an
element inside the tube, causing the mechanical energy to be converted to
electrical energy. In solid state electronics, that's more rare, but still
possible. It can sometimes be traced to a marginal connector, a bad solder
joint or a cracked board, where the components still make contact, but
vibration varies the resistance of the connection.

Subject: [IC-7000] I hear audio in the speaker when transmitting





I just purchased a used IC 7000. When I transmit, I hear my voice in the
speaker or headphones. It is a faint crackly reproduction of my voice. The
speaker monitor menu is set to "off", so in theory at least, there should be
no sound during transmitting.

The problem occurs in all bands, on both my antennas, and even while using
my dummy load. The only way I have been able to stop it is to reduce the
transmit power to 10%.

I cleaned the fuses, and even tried the power cable from my Kenwood. No
difference.

I removed the tuner from the antenna circuit. No change.

Added split core ferrites to all leads on the radio. no change.

One odd thing I noticed is that when I lightly touch the headphone plug, the
radio amplifies the sound of my touching the plug and outputs that sound
into the speaker. And yes, I verified that headphone was plugged into the
correct jack on the radio.

I have run out of things to check, so I plan on returning the used IC 7000
to the vendor. I am considering buying a new 7000, but I wanted to ask this
group if other users hear audio while transmitting.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

That isn't a problem I've encountered before, given what you've done to eliminate the usual causes.

One possiblity perhaps is someone has had the case off and some of the grounding spring fingers and pink RF absorbers aren't positioned correctly. There's a document with pictures of how they should look in this Group's Files section. Look for '7K Grounding Fingers.doc'.

Just to be safe, I would check the DC supply voltage as seen inside the radio while transmitting into a dummy load at 100 watts in CW or FM mode. Measure across pins 3 & 4 of the TUNER connector. You should have at least 13.0 VDC there, assuming your power supply is set for 13.8 VDC. If you have a high resistance in the power path somewhere that results in several volts drop under dynamic loads, it can cause various problems.

Poor shield connections (or slightly loose shells) on the PL-259 connectors can result in a lot of RF leakage right at the back panel, that really mess up the rear mic and speaker cable signals.

Lots of luck finding the problem or returning the unit.

When I was a novice and for a short period thereafter used a bug and had no
problem.
I also operated for YEARS using a bug, and finally decided to move up to an electronic keyer, both to get more consistently good code, and to improve my sending speed. I was very concerned about the learning curve, but I went ahead anyway, about 4 years ago.

For fun, I built one of the Idiom Press CMOS keyers. Very nice kit, and it went together perfectly the first time. For paddles, I went to the local ham store (HRO) and tried everything they had. Since I had developed a pretty "heavy" fist from years of bug-swiping, I ended up with the dual-paddle Vibroplex. The feel was very much like my old bug, and you could whack it pretty hard without it moving or hurting anything. (In contrast, the popular Bencher paddles are more appropriate for someone with a light fist. My girlfriend uses these, but she learned CW on a paddle, and didn't have my "old dog" problem.)

To my surprise, it took me all of ten minutes or so before I was on the air, full iambic/squeeze-key (iambic A), making QSOs. My speed rapidly went up, and I can now comfortably ragchew at 35 wpm or so. I was amazed that the learning curve was virtually non-existent. I can still use a bug, but it's somewhat unnatural now.

After a while, I decided to get a better set of paddles. The Vibroplex is OK, but the adjustments are a little rough, and it is a "spring tension" paddle, which means that it will change over time as the springs wear. I ended up with a beautiful hand-made Fratelli Professional. (Similar to the Iambic Chrome at: http://www.i1qod.it/prima.htm, but solid brass, and solid plastic paddles.) This paddle also can take a "heavy" fist; it weighs over 3 pounds, and does NOT MOVE on the desk. It has magnetic tensioning, which is as smooth as silk.

Instead of springs, the paddle tension is set by moving a magnet, one for each side. These are the modern "neodymium" magnets, that have incredibly high magnetic strength, and small size. The magnets are set so that they repel each other; by moving them closer, the tension increases (more magnetic repulsion). You can set these to very high, or subtly low tension, as you prefer. They never wear from motion, since the tension is magnetic, not mechanical.

HI Eugene,
I'm 70 and am interested in the same things as you.
I am learning oncemore CW, but slowly and with some audio problem ( my ears went injured by explosions and working near by big turbines ); I have never practiced long enough to have hold a reasonable speed, but they told me I have a good fist. If you get these informations you asked for by private mail, please pass them to me, too.
Thanks, and maybe some day we will be able to meet on CW

I've had two magnetic paddles over the years (52 licensed), and I
eventually got rid of both of them. Maybe they were just cheap, but I
found the electrical contact was iffy and would falter at times. This
has nothing to do with being magnetic. They just used poor material to
maintain continuity between the paddle and the grounded base. I had no
problem with the magnetics themselves, but still prefer the good old
adjustable spring.

When I was a novice and for a short period thereafter used a bug and had no
problem.
If you had a bug when you were younger, you'll be right at home with a
straight paddle. I've tried many times to send using iambic technique,
and just don't understand the draw to it. I'm sure there are others,
more likely higher speed operators, who would be lost without it. I'm
fine with the straight paddle up to 40wpm. Beyond that, my brain
doesn't cooperate anyway. In fact, that part is slowing down to the mid
30s these days. :o)

$10-25 swap meet paddles will work fine for you.

Re: [IC-7000] Iambic paddles

Hello Jim,

I use a Vibroplex Vibrokeyer with the conventional dot-dash paddles like a
conventional bug, not Iambic. I use one in the mobile with my IC7000 and
the second in the shack with my TS850. I bought an iambic paddle with the
850 back in 1994 and within days reverted to the single paddle vibrokeyer
with great success. I am halfway to my 77th birthday and have been a brass
pounder since 1950, and as my straight key prowess gets sloppier, I find
that I can hold my own at 25WPM with the above keying combos in the mobile
and the base.

However, to each his own, and I hope that you find what is right for a
youngster as yourself...

73,

Joe

[IC-7000] Re: Icom 7000 not transmitting

roger.quayle
 

Hi Grant - we have spoken on the Blenheim repeater

My IC7000 smoked when it was about 10 days old, and was definitely in receive when it did, and I was at the other desk and only alerted by the smell

Fortunately I'm only 30 minutes from the local HRO store where I bought it, and to their credit they replaced it on the spot

HRO told me that the vast majority do not fail, but of course the statistics on this group are biased because only the owners of failed units post

Its now remote controlled at my ZL QTH, so it had better not smoke again, otherwise the alarm monitoring company and fire brigade will be my feedback loop!

Overall, I'm very happy with the IC7000, its ideal as a remote control rig due to its HF/VHF/UHF capability, and I think it will be great for my intended future use as a mobile rig

The only issue with remote control on the IC7000 that people need to be aware of is HF RF getting into the USB to CI-V interface. I fixed this with good shack grounding, grounding the USB through using a very short (6 inch) USB extension cable between the laptop an the USB-CI-V adapter, with a ground wire soldered to its cable shield, and putting a ferrite on the cable to the rig. Fortunately, the IC7000 stops transmitting when it loses CI-V communication. My CI-V interface is a West Mountain Radio "RigTalk", but I had exactly the same with a generic (Chinese) version. The Icom one is much more expensive, but may of course be better

It would be interesting to know if the ones that fail were also running
quite hot when on receive before the failure occurred. Some people report
that their radios run very warm when on receive only. Mine never has run
warm when left on receive for many hours on end and I assume many others
don't as well.
This could point to the bias setting on the driver or final is incorrect and
it causes premature aging of these parts. It could be that there is an out
of specification part causing excessive idle current with the same eventual
result.
I bought my IC7000 in early 2007. The dealer I bought it from in Singapore
spent some time checking it out for me on his workbench before I took
delivery. These checks included idle current. I don't know if he made any
adjustments at the time.

When I had mine repaired by Icom France, the technician said that
there was an out of spec transistor used in some IC 7000's that led
to the failure of driver boards. He replaced both and the unit has
been okay for the past year.

I think that it is pretty clear that there was something wrong with
some units, and that replacement of driver boards without correcting
the actual cause of failure was leading to the multiple failures.

I like the IC7000, but that doesn't mean that one has to assume all
problems are due to operating errors.

Current drawn from the source: 6 Amp(on 435Mhz). We emissions, can work other stations but I think something's not right. Have you encountered similar problem? Any advice is welcome!
Thanks in advance,
Romeo

I have 2 SignaLink cables for sale. I have an RS-232 DB9 cable for $14 and a USB cable $17 with software, both are new and were purchased for my IC-7000. I will ship them free in CONUS.
