Icom 7610 RS-BA1 Installation and Settings

K0PIR

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.

Hello Dick
I recently picked up that tp link nano EC00 I had one hell of a time getting it set as a client in my home network .
I wanted wifi to insulate the 7610 from the LAN connection ( I lost a computer router wifi and everything that was connected hard to the cable ) Charter cable system took a hit miles from my house I never heard thunder saw lightning …just a loud snap in the house .

Question can this EC00 be set up from the radio ic7610 ???

What I ended up doing was to use a laptop to set the nano chip inside for my On Hub wifi I was able to see it in the On Hub app on my smart phone when it was finished, I spent hours trying to figure it all out there call center help was no help hard to understand the accent of the agent and she was not short with me asking questions.

So can this be set from the radio from out of the box or did it do it the only way using my computer to talk to the EC00 ?

Rich,

I use Xfinity wifi and router and can’t get access from outside my in-house network. Any tips DMZ or Port forwarding etc.

Rich, thanks for your contributions to getting new IC=7610 owners up to speed on remote operation.
I don’t have access to my LAN in the shack, except via WiFi. Can I insert a device on the IC-7610 LAN port to allow WiFi connection? If so, what do I need?

Hello
Thanks for the video. I’ve not yet used the remote and your video will hopefully help an OT get to use some of the features on the 7610 and 7300.

Happy new year,

Dave

Hello Rich!
I have IC-7300 (FW v. 1.30), connected locally to the PC by USB. And I’ve got a problem:
if I set “USB SEND = RTS” (it’s used for HRD) – any activity in “RS-BA1 Remote Control” leads to switching 7300 to TX mode, so only that I can do – turn off it by “POWER” button. “USB SEND = OFF” helps.
Do You know any solution?
Thanks for help!

Hi Rich

Can you tell me do you require a static IP address for complete remote setup, at the moment my ISP uses a dynamic IP address and this could cause issues each time the IP address changes. The ISP charges me an extra $10 a month for a static address, or do you know of any kind of work around?

Hi, I’m N7CQQ working on setting up the RS-BA1 software. I am hung up on the setup for a Local PC. I selected USB/not Manual. Clicked on the drop down menu, no entries.. Tried the Manual, clicked on the drop down menu, found the radio, 7610. Next…the CI-V/Com prot settings.

address 98
Baud Rate 19200
Com port number >>> drop down menu is blank…. Im Stuck here.

Thanks, John N7CQQ

Is the RS-BA2 supposed to be newer than the BA-1 version 2?

I’m using a Mac, icom 7610, FLDGI. I have FLDGI running but I can’t get it to key the radio. I’m missing a setting on the Icom or FLDGI..

I’m still stumped that didn’t work. Might help if I downloaded you logging program and programmed it from there. Maybe I’m missing something in the settings on the 7610. You don’t have to use an external modem, do you?

Gary, I am using the tp-link_980A because my router is on the 2nd floor and the shack is in the finished basement. I set up everything as per your instructions. I do not have the RC-BA1 yet, its on order. But I thought to get ahead of the game so to speak. I am sending you a screen shot, of my windows power shell showing my wireless Lan that is connected the Realtek router. Look at the DNS servers as it only shows 192.168.1.1 which is the same as the DHCP server. Your screenshot shows NETWORK Primary 24.220. 1.100 and 24.220. 1.101. Is there something wrong with my WIN 10 computer? It works with everything I throw at it with no problems. I am using Win4Icom suite but I do see it being an issue? I tried the setup and went into timer and tried to connect to NTP Time SYNC and I get time sync failed. Yes the NTP function is on. So do I need the RC-BA1 to get this part of the process up and running and talking to my router. Sorry for the long email.
