new CT-17 CI-V hub design

VE2DX
 

Hey gang!

Juste finish the new design of my Icom CI-V hub, it is a mordern replacement for the original Icom CT-17 with or without USB port.

The VE2DX CI-V Hub will let you interface multiple ICOM radios together and/or with other peripherals supporting CI-V like Amps, Tuner, Antenna selectors, Band selectors, Steppir SDA-100, and many more. And ir is RFI filtered!

There will be a 5 or a 10 CI-V Port design and they will come with or without USB interface.

Let me know if you are interrested.

Re: New Band Added?

Hi Bill !

Glad I could help you...
There is also a "more easier" way...
It is not necessary to tune from the "unwanted" frequency so
many MHz up.
You will have the same result when you select the 440MHz-band with "up" / "down"
and then tune to 457MHz. The 440MHz-band will remain, and only the "extra-band"
will be shifted.
Just a tipp for the next time 😉

Good DX !

                Hi, George,

        DXCC Received column show the application received between Mar.01 to Mar.10, so your request is forthcoming. I also sent my QSLs to Germany, to DK7YY, so I am also waiting.
        There is no information yet on whether the Friedrihshafen meeting will take place, but it appears that the Visalia meeting has been postponed. The meeting in Daiton, OH is also questionable, so the distance forms must be used. I'll help as long as you have another Card Checker instead of Cliff assigned to SV Land. I have sent two other SV candidates information about the procedure but have not yet responded.
         It's nice to know in the DXCC Desk that, although it will be difficult for me, I will  help your fellow in SV with DXCC Award Program .          

        This is George, stay safe, make DXs,...

The final story for me on this is...while I could not remove it, Othmar's first post about tuning out of the band and then hitting up or down moves the unwanted channel. So I went to the 10.753 frequency I created, and tuned it to 457mhz(local police freq) and hit up. Voila it moved it to between 440 and 1.8. Out of my way but usable once in a while.
Thanks all.

Thanks Scott...yes to the first part you said(2 paragraphs). The second part will take some time to digest.

Thank you and Ill try those tips.

Bill:

I had a chance to play with the radio a bit. I could not exactly replicate your issue, but I may have found a scenario that might make you think it's doing something like what you report.

If I go to a VFO then set it to some frequency in the 5 MHz range and tap the up and down band buttons it always keeps showing me the 5 MHz band. However, if I then go to a memory that has the 10.753.40 frequency in it then tune around that frequency and hit the up/down band buttons it will move the "Extra band" to the 10.753 range and going back to vfo there's also no 5 MHz band anymore.  Is this something like what you're doing?

If, however, I store the 10.753.4 frequency in a memory, then go to the 5 MHz range to make it move the extra band to that range and then simply select memories including the 10.753 and don't tune around that frequency in memory mode, and then go back to VFO, the extra band is still at 5 MHz.

So, if you either stay in VFO mode and set an extra band at 5 MHz and don't tune any other frequency that's not near a Ham band, the extra band will stay there. If you select a memory and then tune another frequency not near one of the Ham bands then use the up/down buttons, it's going to change it. If you don't use the up/down buttons after tuning to a non-ham band area while in memory mode, it won't move the extra band.

I know that's about as clear as mud. The simple answer is don't tune away from a memory frequency and then use the up/down band buttons and it won't do that.

10.753.40 is the frequency it keeps going to. It is in the VFOA and "Memo". It appears on the List as well. I don't know but must have saved it to memory somewhere along the way. I have not been able to remove it from memory following the manual instructions either. Maybe a reset(ugh) is the answer.

I wouldn't mind the extra band slot...just not there.

Re: New Band Added?

OK Othmar and others. I moved the extra band to the 5 MHz position successfully...but hitting band up  the extra band appears again between 30 and 20. Going back down the 5mhz band is gone. So that didn't work hi. Its getting fun as I run through all the menu's, once again familiarizing myself. But cannot find something that works for this issue.


Re: New Band Added?

Othmar S.
 

You're welcome Bill...

Hmmm, how to eliminate it...I think the only way is
to always remember how this works and if you tune out of an amateur-band,
before you change bands, tune back into the ham-band...

Bill:

Wednesdays are my day away from the office, so I'll be home and can play with my IC-7000 for a bit to test this before getting on to other important things. (Cleaning up the shack, for example.)

If you could send me the frequency near the 30 Meter band where it's creating this band and how you're getting back to the 30 Meter band and testing that it's selected that extra band again, I can try this on my radio and perhaps get some more info for you. The more information the better.

Wanted IC-7000

bobsayers2000 <bobsayers2000@...>
 

Hi, All,

Although I have been ideally looking for an exchange deal on my IC-7200 against an IC-7100, I am not finding any 7100s either at the right price, or close enough in mileage to go and have a look at, so I'm widening my search to also include the IC-7000. One of the UK dealers tells me that I've pitched the price of my 7200 right for the condition and items with it, but I'll still consider any sensible offers before I advertise it more widely!


Best regards,

Bob

Yes, I first used DXLab with an IC-718.  It became a software controlled radio.  I then bought the Ic-7000 (which I still own).  I bought it for a mobile but it was so much better for CW  and contesting (built-in filters and voice keyer) that I brought it  back and forth from SUV to shack a lot.  I then bought an IC-7410 (lacking a lot of features,  sure not the improved version of the 756proIII I was expecting).

Anyway all three rigs used CI-V interface no problem.  I used the IC-7000 on Field Day and with Satellites. 

Last year I used the IC-7410 for FD with the CI-V interface for CW.
For FD I use N3FJP network FD logger (I am a CW op )  The IC-7000 CI-V interface works with SATPC-32 and my old Window 7 laptop.

Do you use DXLab with your IC-7000?  The reason I ask is that the video shows a much more capable rig for the demo, an IC-7800, and the Commander window shows the choice of IC-7800 and IC-9100. Those rigs have USB interfaces unlike the slower CI-V (RS-232 driven) interface that the 7000 has.  A controller can do more with it.

If I was starting from zero, I'd try DXLab first.  Since I've been using HRD for 18 years, I'm inclined to experiment more with it and see if I can get there.  

Back in early '16, I looked at DXLab for about a month to see if I wanted to renew HRD or dump it and start over.  I don't remember all the details from four years ago, but obviously stayed with HRD.

The priority, though, is I have about a month to do my outdoor antenna work and stuff before it gets too hot to be outside except morning and evening.  The radio and software will wait.

Mike, NA6MB, that's true...it was just an example 😊
Any other BC-band or so will also do it..

It is a bit confusing but on the Icom page for this, it includes an image of what is used to connect the 7000
The current brochure for the RS-BA1 in that link you sent doesn't have an IC-7000 that picture.  I doesn't mention it.  I know it's an obsolete product now, that probably has something to do with it not showing up.

The reason I asked was that I had looked in the brochure and didn't see the IC-7000.
