Icom 7300 HRD 6.3 DM780 RTTY FSK CW

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Thanks a bunch for this post. You seem to have a video for everything I have been asking about.

If you like your Ameritron 600 watt amp, I think I will buy one as well assuming you have no regrets. I have a hard time spending the money for legal limit as the gain is not that much over 600 watts. A little more the just 3db? They idea is to get ahead of all the 100 watts guys I think.

I ordered a CI-V cable for FSK and CW. I did not think about the length. My computer is about 6 feet from the rig. Might have to move the computer of buy a long cable and choke it.

My installation will be a little different since I run Win4ICOMSuite. It is really an awesome interface, much better than HRD rig control screen. It is tailored for the IC7300 and has a direct server connection to HRD. It also has the ability to act as a clearing house of radio data for other applications. You can enter virtual com port pairs, six of them so that other applications have access to radio data. I think I will setup Win4ICOMSuite on the Ci-V cable and use the USB cable port for PTT for FSK and CW?

I hooked up my Ci-V cable. Can’t seem to get a rig connection. I have the radio set at 115200, and the driver at 8, none, 1 none. The Device Manager says it is a RTS01 Driver on com 5. I got the driver from valley-ent.com.

Wondering if I have the right driver. What do you think.

Rig is ICOM 7300.

Yes, I did load the correct driver but need to change Baud rate. However, during a weak moment, I purchased a 7610. I plan on putting together a mobile package with the 7300.

I understand there are two USB ports on the 7610? Or two ports are available with one USB cable? Either way, I can get FSK and CW working with rig control?

OK. I do have tech support with HRD. I am a DM780 user but have other programs as well. Maybe we can work out the DM780 FSK problem together. My radio arrives Tuesday and should be hooked up and ready to go the same day.

So I guess there is no need for a Ci-V cable with the 7610?

Richard, I appreciate your web site and the help you have given to all of us. Very valuable info.

Could you share the settings of your 7300 and DM-780 for FSK RTTY. I have two cables but when I put the rig in RTTY mode and transmit all I get is a single tone. I looked at your videos but didn’t see all your actual settings.

Thanks for all your help

Rich thanks for the reply. I have mine set up exactly like you do with 2 cables and the same settings. But I’m still just getting a single tone when I xmit in RTTY mode. I look forward to your next update. 73. Ron/W4ET

Rich, I followed your suggestion and dm-780 did start sending. However, it is sending garbarage rather than what is in the macros or what I send by typing. I’v tried both normal and reverse but it is the same. At least it is sending. Now I have to figure out why its not sending the correct letters/numbers.

Thanks for the reply. Yes to all three questions. Any suggestions as to what settings to check in reference to it sending garbage? Thanks for your help.
