I have both the IC-7000 and the TS-480HX. Which is the best? Depends on what you are going to do with them. I like both and use both. Don't know what I would do if I hade to choose.

Hello all,
I am new to this group and I am planning on buying a IC 7000 of Kenwood TS-480. Since this is a IC7K group (and I hope you all like your radio) answers might be a tad biased. But that is ok if i get some strong votes/ with the reason why to go with the IC7k. Have any of you owned the TS 480 and switched to the IC 7000 or had a chance to compare it.

Oh, I have an IC 706Mk2G with a Hi Q 4/80 antenna. I operate mobile only.
Pro and cons please.

Re: Rigblaster Plug and Play--HRD--BPSK Need your thoughts

cslesinski <mspiv001@...>
 

[:D] IT WORKS IT WORKS IT WORKS
OMG I think it took me a very long time and much frustration but I have
finally made the Rigblaster Plug and Play work in Window 7 with HRD and
DM780.
It took a radio shack USB Scanner interface cable cat number 20-047 to
the controll port o f the icom. Set the HRD to use Comm 4 if that is
available. Set DM780 to use com 3 , set DTR and RST on (PTT via serial)
and the one setting NO ONE told me about was in DM780 Modes + IDs CW tab
check the Use PTT box.
OMG I am so excited I 've got to get back on the air right now [:D]
If you are trying to make thios same config work, let me know , maybe I
can help.

I can key my 7K using HDR. I can copy BPSK using the DM780 and I can
send BPSK from the PC speaker through the open Mic althought it is not
very readable on the receive end.

I go from the Rigblaster P&P to the data port on the 7K.

Has anybody made this work?

"LDG" ATU

Hi folks!

I've just unpacked my brand new IC-7000 and I'm getting aquainted with it.

In the next few days I'll be in the need to provide the 7k with an ATU.

I also have a FT-817 operating with a LDG Z-817 ATU.

I found such ATU a very good equipment for my purposes - even if based on the quite limited performances of FT-817 - and I'd like to purchase a new ATU of the same brand for the 7k too.

What's your suggestion? Z-100+ or IT-100?

Tnx coop

Having used the 7000 and 706 side by side for months I can say the 7000 is the better radio in terms of IF DSP especially in a mobile situation. Both radios are a superb value though and you won't go wrong with either one.

I am currently using an original 706, I want to get a 7000 for my nxt radio, I did have a 480HX, I liked the extra power but had some issues with it, so it is history, of course the 7000 has vhf and uhf which the 480 does not. I am currently involved in digital stuff, so I am hoping I will be happy with a 7000 when I get it

Thanks Robert!

I was helping a friend figure out a way to remotely power ON/OFF an Icom
PW-1 amplifier last year. I had to install an opto-coupler in the
amplifier's control head to close the power switch contacts, there was
no other way even after talking to Icom. After I installed the circuit
in the head, and the internet controlled drive for the opto, I brought
out the motorized finger. I explained that if the circuit didn't work,
I had prepared an option! It was a lot of fun.

Re: [IC-7000] Rigblaster Plug and Play--HRD--BPSK  Ne

Donnie,

My 1.5 y/o HP note-book [Vista 32 Home] has 3 jacks on front. Left & middle are headphones, & right is mike in. With good light, you can just make out the headphone & mike symbols.

I think the 2 'fone jacks can be toggled for ext. speakers, but my amp speaker works OK, leaving the jacks for headset, & not disabling internal mini-speakers. [Stereo apparently =/= 'hi-fi'.]

Re: [IC-7000] Rigblaster Plug and Play--HRD--BPSK  Ne

John Callaghan <jccallaghan@...>
 

I have just gotten started in digital with my IC-7000 and found a little
help goes a long way.
First for rig control I went with the RIGtalk USB
http://www.westmountainradio.com/RIGtalk.htm instead of the conventional
serial port connection with the CV-V cables and gender changers. It is
simply plug and play.

Next I am using the Signal Link USB. http://www.tigertronics.com/ This
offers a better sound card option than trying to use the computer sound card
alone.

Software, there are a number of programs but the foundational product that
seems to work best for me is Ham Radio Deluxe. It is free but donations are
requested. Well worth rewarding the team that has put this together. They
have the rig control portion with a number of neat options to scan the
bands, log contacts and get access to your DM730 and PSK31 software that
comes with HRD.

There are a few key settings you need to make for the sync between the
radio, software and additional hardware and computer. First in the tools
section of HRD there is an IP setting you need to make sure is working.
Next go to start (assuming windows), Accessories, Entertainment, Volume
Control under properties make sure you select the CODEC option for the
Signal Link soundcard. A window will pop up where you can adjust the
volumes for a series of devices. On the volume controls for the left two
bring them up to maximum and mute the two on the right then close.

Go back and while in HRD, open the DM780 software and Select Tools for
Soundcard selection. Select the same CODEC for the Soundcard then close the
window.

Now you will want to bring your transmit settings down on the radio to a
lower power setting perhaps 30-50% and adjust your TBW setting to narrow
(Transmit Bandwidth.)

You are technically ready to go but you will want to fill in all the
information sections including callsign, QTH, Rig information, Antenna,
other. This is then kept for some of the macros that can be used for
calling CQ to begin a transmission, or other pull downs to make
communication ID much easier and even closing.

I have been doing this for about 3 week and get better every time. Read the
Setup directions very carefully at least twice for the Signal Link and the
RIGtalk.

Hope to talk on the air.

Re: [IC-7000] TS Light

Tim Hardy AF1G <hardyt@...>
 

I have two IC7Ks, use one mobile and one base. In the mobile I keep all the backlights on but for the base I turned off the backlight for all the switches, as I never run the shack with all the room lights out. This saves the bulbs, reduces power consumption (probably not enough to worry about), and possibly reduces heat a little.

I would say that the LED for the TS button is burnt out. MY 7000 is about 4 months old both are lit.

I just purchased a used IC-7000 and it's newer by 877 per serial number than the radio I bought new in the summer of 2008. My original radio S/N 0509730 has illumination of the TS and SPCH buttons all the time.
The radio I just received only has the SPCH button lit and not the TS.
Is this normal?

Re: [IC-7000] Rigblaster Plug and Play--HRD--BPSK  Ne

For your PC to control the 7K's frequency and other functions you need the rig control cable for CI-V radios shown at:

http://www.westmountainradio.com/pnpradiomatrix.htm

See page 9 of the P&P user manual for info on getting radio control working.

Read the user manual for your laptop to figure out what the other audio jacks do!

There is a lot of good support info for the P&P at:

http://www.westmountainradio.com/supportpp.htm

It's a little confusing at first, but re-read the P7P user manual a couple of times slowly and it will start to make more sense.

For myself the P&P is not talking to the 7000. I have had some say that I
must use the Icom CIV along with the P&P but that seems to defeat the
purpose of the P&P. The other issue I have is the 2 cables and there placement
on the pc(I am using a HP laptop with windows vista) , this pc does not have
the normal jcks one would find on a desktop for soundcard use. I have 3
ports on the laptop that are used for headphones and the other 2 I have no
idea what they are for. This is my first try at computer rig control and the
digital modes. Any help would be gladly recieved.

Hey guys. We need a little more to go on. Sorry if I missed previous posts.
What is/not it doing? P&P works for me with my 7K.

Would also be very interested to find out how to get this set-up to work.
Have been trying off and on now for 3 weeks and still no luck.

I have tried everything. Well maybe not everything because it still does
not work.

I can key my 7K using HDR. I can copy BPSK using the DM780 and I can send
BPSK from the PC speaker through the open Mic althought it is not very
readable on the receive end.

I go from the Rigblaster P&P to the data port on the 7K.

Has anybody made this work?

Thanks for listening
