Trio/Kenwood TS120 circuit diagram required

Simon (G4WQG)
 

Morning All,

I am in need of a copy of the circuit and PCB layout of a TS120..

I can find some copies on the net but the PCB overlay is not clear enough. So a hard copy of and original service manual would be the answer..

I would only need to borrow for 48hours

Thanks in Advance

For an IC7000…

You have 2 options.

1) make a custom RJ45 cable to RJ45 (easiest)
2) make/buy/use the Icom rj45 to 8 pin socket adapter. OPC-589 style.

The two rj45 sockets on the board are connected in parallel.  If you were to use a headset, you could technically have both radios plugged in at the same time.

Either way is simple.

For those interested, this will also NOT work with the ICOM IC-7000. I've just checked both the 7300 and 7000 manual and the pin allocations are different on the MIC plug. Obviously you could change the MIC plug wiring and it will work, but it won't be interchangeable between the 7000 and 7300.

Hi James,

Yes, that's what I said, you can make it for the IC-7000, by wiring the pins differently, but it won't be interchangeable (once built) with the IC-7300. I was just trying to point out that it won't be interchangeable between the two radios. I have both a IC-7000 and IC-7300, so it would have been nice if I could have used it on both. Having said that, I've just noticed that the radio plug is wired via a RJ45 socket, for some reason, I thought it was hard wired, but with RJ45 socket, that makes it simple as I just wire two separate plugs, one for the IC-7000 and one for the IC-7300.

Sorted! :)

Cheers,

Dom, 2E0WHQ


Re: ICOM Memory Keypad Kit

James (M1DST)
 

Dom,

It is compatible.  You are free to wire the pins as you wish.

Ok, that’s 5 of you (some off list) confirmed so far.  BACS is ideal for me and I’ll out the details with each kit.

I have a few more cases to print today then to complete the final few.  Good job more filament arrives today.

If you know anyone else who might want them, please forward on the details.

Hi all,

A few weeks ago I considered designing a project to control my IC9700 voice memories.  Before embarking on a new project I always check if someone has already done it first.  The obvious contender is the SotaBeams ContestConsole but that costs £70.  Far too much for what it is.  I then came across a project from ON5IA which did exactly what I wanted.  Rather than reinvent the wheel, I decided just to use this project and move on.

Mentioning it to a few club members who said they would like to build one, I had the PCBs manufactured and sourced all the components to populate it.  I then designed a two part case which protects the PCB.

I have around 10 kits available for purchase at £15

For this you will get a kit of parts and a plastic case to solder yourself including the 8 pin radio plugs/sockets.  It should take about 90 minutes to build and there are only through-hole parts to solder.

You are also able to plug a headset into it including a footswitch without the need for a dongle.  You can just plug your existing microphone in instead though.

Attached are some photos of the build and parts.

Once they are gone, they are gone.  This was just a project for me which I scaled up to assist you as a single purchase would cost significantly more than the bulk price I achieved.

If you want one, let me know asap and I will reserve one for you.

What is it, and why would you need it?
 
A (voice, CW, RTTY) keyer is a tool to record and play back messages. When you are calling CQ, you don’t have to endlessly speak or send morse, the keyer can do that for you.
Many Icom radio’s like the IC-7300 have a built in voice keyer with 8 memory slots. However, you can only activate these via the touchscreen when you are in the keyer menu (obviously).
 
This keyer menu takes up 50% of the display, and prevents you from viewing other interesting screens, such as the extended waterfall or the audioscope.

20201222_204735.png

20201222_205151.png

 

With an external keypad we can recall up to 4 out of the 8 memory slots, without having the keyer menu on display. An additional advantage of an external keypad is that you can install it in a spot that is best accessible to you. In case of a contest e.g.: just next to your PC keyboard.

 

It is compatible with most modern Icom radios (9700, 7300, 7100, 7800 etc) for the memory keys (voice, cw and rtty) and older Icom rigs like (910 etc) for the up/down and PTT.

Re: DXCC Awards

David (G7IXU)
 

Graham, you’ve solved the problem – thank you !

 

You are absolutely right, the answer lies in the help pages with the words:

  • If you have received DXCC award credit by submitting QSL cards for QSOs made from the DXCC entity associated with your DXCC award account, you must link your DXCC Award account to your DXCC record before you can proceed with your application
  • If you have never submitted either QSL cards or LoTW confirmations for DXCC award credit for QSOs made from the DXCC entity associated with your DXCC award account, proceed by
    • indicating whether you are or are not an ARRL member
    • specifying your Name
    • specifying your Call Sign
    • clicking the Continue -> button.

I have never before submitted any application, so the first bullet point does not apply and, as you say, I simply fill in the few details required and move on to Part 3.

 

So why the hell doesn’t the application page give the same helpful text! It just sends you down the ‘need to link’ route which is where I hit the dead end.

 

I proceeded with the application and got to the cost bit… it was going to cost $51 to make the application and have the certificate sent to me!! I must say that seems to be excessively high. OK, I’m not an ARRL member and I am using their systems for my hobby but even so… That’s quite disappointing to be honest, I like to do things properly, but to spend that every time I reach 100 is a bit much

 

I think I’ll either print my own certificate or even just the table of confirmed entities !

 

I hope the above helps you Marc 😊

 

Thanks again for the pointer Graham.

Cheers

David G7IXU

Hi David,

 

Congratulations on getting to 100.

 

I have recently gone through this process as well.

 

When you are on the “Account Status” page, there will be a menu on the left side of the screen which should have an Option “ Application”.  This will take you to a screen “Award Application Part 1”.   A the top of the page are the various awards.  You should click on the award that you are applying for and this will populate the tick boxes next to the list of entities, relevant to your award.  You can check which ones it will use and change the ticks if necessary.  Once the list is correct, click on the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page which will take you to the rest of the application process, which is fairly self-explanatory.  Be warned that LotW charges 12cents per record on top of the application fee, cost of the certificate and postage!

 

Good Luck

Hi David,

Well done on reaching the 100! I'm at 98 so not far away, I'll be going through the same process shortly hopefully ...

A DXCC Award account is automatically created as far as I can tell, at least it did for me. You have to allocate your DXCC credits to your DXCC account.

As per LOTW website :

For DXCC, an account is created for each unique combination of call sign and DXCC Entity. For example, suppose W1AW had uploaded QSOs signed using certificates bearing these call signs and DXCC Entities:

W1AW (USA)

 

1AW (USA) — old call

 

W1HQ (USA) — club call

 

W1AW/0 (USA) — portable operation

 

VE3/W1AW (Canada) — expedition

As matching QSO records (QSLs) were uploaded from other stations, a DXCC award account would be created for each of these cases.

If you have more than one call sign in the same DXCC Entity, you can merge the accounts to make them one. For example, W1AW would probably choose to merge the W1AW (USA), 1AW (USA) and W1AW/0 (USA) accounts into one account. Under DXCC rules W1AW cannot claim credit for QSOs with a club call.

If you have an existing DXCC award, you can have your DXCC record linked to the corresponding LoTW DXCC award account.

Select an award account from the list and click Select DXCC Award Account to get started.

Best wishes,

Marc

Hi David,

Well done on reaching the 100! I'm at 98 so not far away, I'll be going through the same process shortly hopefully ...

A DXCC Award account is automatically created as far as I can tell, at least it did for me. You have to allocate your DXCC credits to your DXCC account.

As per LOTW website :

For DXCC, an account is created for each unique combination of call sign and DXCC Entity. For example, suppose W1AW had uploaded QSOs signed using certificates bearing these call signs and DXCC Entities:

W1AW (USA)

 

1AW (USA) — old call

 

W1HQ (USA) — club call

 

W1AW/0 (USA) — portable operation

 

VE3/W1AW (Canada) — expedition

As matching QSO records (QSLs) were uploaded from other stations, a DXCC award account would be created for each of these cases.

If you have more than one call sign in the same DXCC Entity, you can merge the accounts to make them one. For example, W1AW would probably choose to merge the W1AW (USA), 1AW (USA) and W1AW/0 (USA) accounts into one account. Under DXCC rules W1AW cannot claim credit for QSOs with a club call.

If you have an existing DXCC award, you can have your DXCC record linked to the corresponding LoTW DXCC award account.

Select an award account from the list and click Select DXCC Award Account to get started.

Best wishes,
