N3FJP ACLog, WSJT-X, JTAlert A Powerful Combination

In FT-8, Icom 7300, Softwareby K0PIR4 Comments

N3FJP’s Amateur Contact Log (N3FJP ACLog) combined with WSJT-X and JTAlert are a powerful combination for the digital mode operator. I admittedly have favored Ham Radio Deluxe Logbook in the past, but this combination of software works very well together. Also, I don’t like the way JTAlert and HRD quit supporting each other. This version of JTAlert (v2.10.1) supports HRD …

Icom 7300 MacLoggerDX Setup

In Icom 7300, Mac In The Shack, Softwareby K0PIR6 Comments

Even if you are on a PC, have a look at this! This program has some really nice features. MacLoggerDX was very easy to setup and when I ran into a question or two later on I e-mailed the developer Don, and he got right back to me with the answer. No problems getting MacLoggerDX setup with my Icom 7300. …

In Discussion, Icom 7300, Reviewsby K0PIR2 Comments

The pictures and captions below were sent to me by Gene, W9NMX, with the Icom 7300 driving the Ameritron 1500 amplifier. I have always been interested in the reports completed on the Icom 7300 SDR/HF 6m Transceiver. When the radio first came out there was alot of speculation.

Icom 7300 WSJT-X Combined With HRD And JT-Alert

In FT-8, Icom 7300, Softwareby K0PIR33 Comments

Over the past few weeks I’ve worked to improve operating with WSJT-X. Everything from improving the wide graph (waterfall), logging to HRDLogbook, setting up alerts and improving the Icom 7300 settings. All of it plays a role in WSJT-X and making JT65/JT9 more enjoyable. The Icom 7300 Settings Inside the rigs menu things are pretty much the same. If you …

Icom 7300 Microphone Christmas Savings Plan

In Icom 7300, Reviewsby K0PIR38 Comments

The Icom 7300 microphone that’s included with the radio gets great audio reports, but I can’t use a hand mic while contesting or running a net. When I first received my Icom 7300 I ordered a Heil Y cable with blocking capacitor so I could continue using my dynamic microphones. They weren’t real expensive mics, but I wanted to use …

Icom 7300 Spectrum Scope Settings Video

In Icom 7300by K0PIR6 Comments

The Icom 7300 spectrum scope is fantastic! I have been using my Icom 7300 a lot and one the best features is the spectrum scope. The default settings are good, but I liked the way my Flex 1500 default scope looked. So, I’ve made some changes to the one on the Icom 7300. It only takes a minute or two …

In Icom 7300, Softwareby K0PIR24 Comments

Icom 7300 DM780 Setup: I’m using the free version of Ham Radio Deluxe and DM780 in this example. The free version is still available here. If you like the free version I would suggest you get the paid version at some point. The updated Digital Master 780 does RTTY (FSK). That’s what I’ll be upgrading to later. I am also using Windows …
