Fist of all a lot of people got conned into upgrading to Win10 and are now stuck with it.

You most likely use it too and it is annoying and now that you have upgraded you are stuck with it. Everything you do on the computer is affected by it.

This petition is not whining it is taking action! It goes directly to the MS directors that can make the change happen!
If everybody signs and we have 200.000 signatures they will listen!

Please everybody sign.

Thank you;

It is NOT what this mail list is for!  There are ways to turn the ads off.  If you don't like Win10, DON'T USE IT.  But don't clog our mail boxes with this crap!!!  Start a "whining about Win10" mail list.

Never to mention it was during our work area in the 90 that helped to make MS what it is today. This is how we get thanked for helping them to make it big time.

Re: [IC-7000] USB to IC-7000 interface and N1MM+

Hank Hanburger
 

Not sure what a Lenova AIO (Leonovo?) is nor what the noise is that you refer to might be.

I don't believe the Lenovo laptop T510 is FUBAR as all other aspects of its operation work just fine and everything I have plugged into any of the USB ports are recognized and work.

In earlier posts regarding this issue I have mentioned that using this particular computer with the same and another interface with a different and earlier model Icom radio works just as it should with the logging software.

As the bandwidth on this topic is getting a bit lengthy and no resolution seems to be forthcoming I will post a message should I come up with a solution rather than kicking a dead horse.

I plan to borrow 1 or 2 other IC-7000 radios to see if they behave the same way with this setup and will post the results when and if I can arrange it.

Thanks to all who posted suggestions and helpful hints.

73 and Merry Christmas,

The one thing I do need to pick up for the shack is an external SWR meter. I have one for my UHF & VHF rig, but not the HF one. I have used the one on the rig and the tuner and felt that was good enough. This is a prime example of why I need one. Sure I could use my manual tuner, as it has one, but that will just introduce more variables into the equation.


Can you all recommend a decent HF SWR meter that won't cause the wife to get upset with my spending. :)

I bought one of those quick guides to using the IC7000. Its about 6 pages in A5 size. Very worth while.

I have been away from HAM radio for a few months and I seem to have gone brain dead with how my 7000 operates.  First off, I have a LDG AT100 PRO auto tuner interfaced with my radio.  If I hit the tune button on my rig, it all seems to tune up just fine, but when I start to communicate (JT65) the SWR meter on the rig goes full scale, but the SWR meter on the LDG AT100 is at 1.  Am I doing something wrong?  I thought they always show the same or is the SWR meter on the rig showing the SWR between the tuner and itself?


Sorry for the goofy question... I should know this

Re: SWR Question

I like the Diamond SWR/Power meters.  I have the SX-1000 that covers up to 1.3 GHz.   The SX-600 covers HF-UHF.  I have found them to be reliable and accurate.  Cost is $160-180, but worth it.

The one thing to be aware of is to read SWR you switch to CAL mode and adjust the meter to the red calibrate line for the power level you are using, then switch back to SWR mode.  It adds one step to the measurement process, but improves the accuracy across a wide range of frequencies and power levels.


Diamond® Antenna ~ Accessories Meters

 

Beware of the $30 "CB" meters as they often increase the overall SWR in your feed line and can be wildly inaccurate on some bands.

You can try this: start the pic/laptop in safe mode. Go to have hardware manager and open USB devices. I think you have to "show all devices" from the menu. You should see a bunch of devices. Personally I would delete everything but be careful with the mouse and keyboard.

Oddly, you can find a fairly good one at Radio Shack for peanuts. The rig has a good one, and the tuner certainly has a good one, but I have a cheap little RS one in line that is there for visual reference. I want to get the one for the AT-600ProII one day, but that will take some saving...

Hi John,

Depends entirely upon your wife's spending limit.  But MFJ has quite a good selection of all kinds of SWR meters from $39.99 up.  Dual meter is nice, and probably not too expensive.

I have a Lenova AIO with six USB 3 ports. There are two on the side of the monitor. All storage devices work fine in both ports. Some devices like my GPS is not recognized in one but works great in the other. Between the  two they are configured differently. I have not found out what the difference is

After all the noise, it’s just your Lenovo that is FUBAR.

Check it with other USB devices.

ME (IZ0FVJ Fabrizio) and my ICOM IC7000 - Presentation

Fabrizio Riccardi <radiofvj@...>
 

Hello to all, and thanks for add me in this group.


I am Fabrizio Riccardi, and I am an italian ham radio enthusiast.
I like so much Radio and HF, particularly cw.
I am an enthusiast of electronic world, but I am not very educated in electronics. Despite this, however, I like so much study and learn any information, every technique, every notion own electronic.


Some time ago, I repaired a Kenwood ts140s which it remains to be set for the second good noise blanker, and one ft817 wich had problems in audio section(audio distorced), and on battery charge section(oxide on some components and on the connector).
Now, this two radio are good.


At the moment, I wanted to subscribe to this group, although I prefer Yaesu, because one friend has gave to me an IC7000 with some problems knowing that theI am passionate about radio and electronics.


Return to my ic7000, I try to explain problems that this rig has.


1) NO AUDIO on ALL BAND. The radio is totally mute.
On rear ‘ext speaker jack’, no audio on the internal speaker, no audio in the earphone jack on front of the rig. Beep and background noise aren’t audible.
Powering up the rig, all function are good and all knobs, menus, are ok.
In receive mode, the rig drain about 1,24A


2) NO RX. The rig doesn’t receive nothing in all band.
Even with a radio near functioning like, if I send the other my ic7000 is totally deaf in receive mode. The meter doesn’t measure anything.
In receive mode, the rig drain about 1,24A


3) NO TX ON ANY BAND.
The rig, keyng with straight key/paddles/microphone, goes on TX but no power out is present.
If I transmit on any band and any modes, the rig don’t pull out any rf power. Nothing!
If I transmit, the rig drain is about 1,48A. In tx, the alc meter goes full scale, but no power out is present. Nothing.


I hope, with the recommendations of this group and with the help of those who will patiently guide me, that I will be able to repair this nice rig.


I thank in advance those who will help me, and I apologize for my English school which is not the best


Naturally, then, I will update you on future developments that are taking place.


If ever I'll be able to rearrange this rig, I'll be done a nice Christmas gift especially with your help, in a very critical period for me as it does not work and I mother is very ill. Repair this radio, if I did, it would be a good way to be near her and keep her company without leave her alone.


Thank you all for your patience in reading these few lines.


Many many thanks to all from IZ0FVJ Fabrizio.

PRESENTATION - Me and my ICOM IC7000 - NO RX, NO TX and no sound

radiofvj@...
 

Hello to this useful group.

I introduce myself.


I am Fabrizio and I am an italian ham radio operator who love so much HF, CW, and radio communication.

I am in Rome, and I am hamradio operator since 2003.

I am 42 years old.


Recently, a friend gave me an ICOM IC7000 with some problems. He don't want to repair this rig, 

This friend gave me the rig because he knows that to me, not being an electronic technician and while not trained on radioriparazioni, like fix these things calmly thus trying to increase my simple electronic culture and bring back to life these appliances.

Lately, very calmly, I repaired a kenwood ts140s to which I just recalibrate the nb2 and replace potentiometers slide on the front, I repaired a FT817 with distorted sound, and repaired a Yaesu complete vx7r barometric module, which had problems to the keyboard and the lCD module.

Apparatuses that, now, they work very well and regularly use.


I will now describe the defects.


It power on normally. At 13,8V the rig power on without problem, and it drain about 1,25A.

The first message on the display powering on, is about the knowledge of responsibility about use of the rig or receive TV mode while driving a vehicle, and about agreement or not this responsability.

I choose YES, and the rig comes on normally.


It power on on 20m band, 14,100.000Mhz.

All of the menu items, functions are regular. Function are present, all knob work normally.


But.....there is a but....


After first display message on responsibility, the internal speaker makes a 'pop' and the rig goes on. But no audio is present. The volume pot works normally, the squelch pot idem, but no audio is present. Infact, while pressing the various buttons, not even feel its beeps.


Nothing.


Other problem.

No rx is present. The instrument of the rig doesn't measure any signal. No signal rx is present on all band.


Another problem.

Normally, the rig drain about 1,25A.

If I transmit, with microphon HM-151 or via straight key or paddle, the rig goes on TX but no power out is present. 

In this situation the drain, on TX, is about 1,48A. Whether imposed to 0 the transmission power, whether the imposed maximum, the drain is always about 1,48A.


In summary therefore, the problems:

- no audio is present in the rig on the internal speaker, on the earphone jack on the front of the radio, and on the rear external speaker jack;

- no rx is present on any band and any modes;

- no tx power out is present, on any band and any modes.


In all of this situation, if I transmit via microphone or straight key or paddles, the ALC goes on full scale.


In the hope that it was not too long in describing the situation, and I apologize for my small English 'school', I strongly hope to be able to get useful and constructive advice that I may be able, with the help of the group, given to me to fix this radio.


Of course, I will update you on further developments, then hoping to be able to rejoice together with you to troubleshoot failures.


Thanking the administrator of this group for my admission and for the patience :) I want to express my thanks for any advice I receive, and the opportunity to begin to extend to all my heartfelt thanks and best wishes for the festive season that they are approaching.


Sincerely, 73 to all de IZ0FVJ Fabrizio :)
