JTDX FT8 with Ham Radio Deluxe, JTAlert and the Icom 7610

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.

    The guys supporting WJSTX are pretty firm about the ALC showing zero DB or no movement. I have made QSO both ways but I never can see my transmit output so I do not know the quality of my signal. I know the ICOM manual indicates ALC is needed so I am torn.

    Great video as always.

      Hi Brad,

      Great to hear from you and thanks for commenting here.

      I know, it’s very hard to overcome.

      I was looking at the JTDX manual and saw,” Adjust the soundcard Output that the ALC of the connected Radio will not exceed the limit stated in the Radio’s user manual. It’s a hard to overcome the myth that ALC should be 0 and every move of the ALC needle is evil …”

      If anyone is concerned then they should do what they feel is best. Just my 2 cents.

      Thank you again for commenting and Happy Easter!

      Hi Don,
      Great to hear from you and thank you for commenting here.
      Yes it does have a Raspberry Pi3 download. Check out the JTDX homepage.
      I haven’t tested it out, but I sure will and thank you again. Happy Easter!
