Icom 7610 Clock, Timers and Network- How To



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.

      Hi Salvatore,

      Nice to hear from you and thank you for the question.

      I have used Ham Radio Deluxe DM780, N1MM Logger+, WinWarbler and a few other programs to transmit CW.

      What software do you have now?
      What are you using for decode?

      Very good video, but let me add one detail about DHCP. If you log into your router, most will let you reserve an IP address for a particular MAC address. So if you give the router the MAC address of your Bridge, it will give you the same address every time you connect. So the DHCP address now becomes effectively a static address .

        Hi Joe,

        Nice to hear from you and thank you for pointing that out. Very good!

        That’s an excellent option.

        Best 73 and I hope to hear you on the air,

    Question about 7610:

    I am trying to set up the radio for remote operation.

    I want to use the built in web server and not be required to have a computer at the radio location.

    I can not find any documentation about setting up using the web server.

    There is lots of info about setting up the 7300 which does not have a web server.

    Does anyone know where to find info about using the web server for remote operation?

      Hi Ron,

      Nice to hear from you and thank you for the e-mail. That’s a very good topic and I want to do a article on it, hopefully soon.

      If you have the RS-BA1 software, install it on your remote PC.

      Setup your Icom 7610 for networking. Menu>Set>Network. DHCP should be okay. Give the radio a Network Radio Name on the last page of the setup.

      Start the Icom Remote Utility and connect. That’s the first thing. Setting that one up was pretty easy.

      Then start RS-BA1 Remote Control. There are many settings in it to get it TX operational, but hopefully this is a start for you. See if you can get control of the radio.

      More info is at RS-BA1 Installation Guide.

      Let me know how far you get and hopefully I can help. I need a refresher on installing and getting it working.

    Hi Rich,

    My “UTC” clock does not display. The local 24 hour clok works and sysncs via the network.

    What else should I look at?

    PS: I think I heard you in a SSB pileup after H33J. You were loud at my QTH.

      Hi Brad,

      Thanks for commenting here. I try in the pileups and sometimes I get through, hi!

      Do you mean it does not show on the LCD main screen? If so, the Spectrum Scope blocks it. Make sure the Spectrum Scope is off.
      UTC clock

      Is that it?
