Hi Walt

I'm not really familiar with the IC-375A, but here's a few thoughts anyway.
1. I assume since you don't mention a mic jack connection, that there must be a tx audio pin on the ACC socket. Does it need to be turned on somewhere?
2. You might try taking the TX audio from the interface box to the mic jack and see if that works. I've done that with a K2. It's inconvenient, as you need a switch or plug-and-unplug to switch between SSB/FM and digital, but it might help troubleshoot the TX audio issue.
3. Is the IC-375A stable enough for FT8, etc.? Some of the older gear is pretty iffy at these frequencies. My much newer Elecraft XV222 transverter is ok on RX, but drifts badly (from a digital perspective) once I start transmitting. It's fine for SSB/CW.

Good luck with your project.

73,
Steve VE3SMA


locked No Radio Setting for IC-375A #Icom #Cat_RigControl

Walter Miller, AJ6T
 

I recently obtained a old 1980s-era Icom IC-375A monoband 222 MHz transceiver, and I cannot get it to work with WSJT-X.  The first problem is that there is no IC-375A Radio option in the WSJT-X settings menu, so there is no direct way to control this transceiver from WSJT-X.  I had partial success by selecting "DX Lab Suite Commander" as the radio and using DX Commander to control the CAT portion of the interface since DX Commander does have an IC-375A option.  With that setup I can control the IC-375A frequency and mode from DX Commander, and both DX Commander and WSJT-X properly display the chosen mode and frequency.  FT8 reception works, but PTT and audio TX do not work.  I'm using the default IC-375A CI-V parameters Hex12 and 1200 baud.

My interface is a G8XGG "USB-DIGIMODE-4" box with three cables: USB to computer, ACC DIN connector to rig, and CI-V cable to the rig's  3.5mm mini "REMOTE" connector.  This interface presents both an audio CODEC and a COM port to the computer.

It's worth noting that the ancient IC-375A does not have a CAT command to control PTT, so that function must be performed separately from the CAT link (via RTS on the COM port).  The rig will be operated in USB mode since there is no dedicated digital mode on the IC-375A.

The IC-375A is very similar to other monoband VHF rigs of that era, the IC-275 (2m) and IC-475 (70cm), so I imagine that the hamlib programs used for all three rigs must be very similar. Another complication is that it appears that all of the WSJT-X options for Icom radios use the default settings for CI-V ports and baud rates.

I would like to run the IC-375A directly from WSJT-X in one configuration, and to control the rig from DX Commander in a separate configuration (obviously not at the same time) since that brings in the very nice DX Lab environment.

Any suggestions on how I might breathe life into my IC-375A would be most appreciated.

I love how the colors are implemented, especially the ability to change the priority. I always love the excitement when a new DXCC shows up.

I imagine when the signal is decoded and the various parts (call, grid, DXCC, etc) are compared to whats new vs whats been-there-done-that,
that triggers the color (again based on priority settings). What if it were possible to remember which part triggered the color, and highlight
that part in that color. Other parts trigger different colors, so each part would tell you separately. It might be new DXCC *and* and new grid *and* and new CQ zone.
oh, and likely a new callsign too. :-) Of course each color can still be turned off as usual in the settings.

I would like to see the lines colored by part that's new, and not just the whole line at the highest priority..

Since this would be a very different experience, It would make sense to have this super-color mode be optional behind a setting.

Of course, I would love for someone to take this idea and propose a better idea.

WSJT-X does a nice job of creating a Cabrillo log for contests and FD.

However, it is lacking 1 important function that would make a great addition and much easier work flow.

So as a request, please add a function to the Cabrillo file creation - to also create a small file that breaks down the QSO's per band - as is required by the ARRL during the entry upload process.

This should be a fairly easy task.

Thank you,

I had the same issue with a different pair of rigs. I was also using a
laptop sound card for wsjt. Turns out the laptop mike was selected, and
the audio was being picked up by the Mike, resulting in a very low signal
level. Changed the input to the Mike jack and all was well.

Thanks. You are right.
I was being fooled by the profile folder in C:\Users\dell\AppData\Local\. Looking properly I realised it was not a folder but the link, sending me to my new folder on E:
Once the link is opened it *looks* as if it is actually in the original place which is what the junction does:-)

If creating a profile creates a separate folder (or folders) immediately below C:\Users\<username>\AppData\ then it might be necessary to create a directory junction between AppData and the alternate location (E:\ or wherever) so that *everything* that would normally go into AppData goes onto E:.

On the other hand, just moving AppData to another location looks straightforward enough, although I've never done it. I have however moved all the standard library folders (Desktop etc) onto my E: drive without any problems arising.

Have you tried taking the 991a out of the mix and replace it with a
different sound source? In other words, if you have a small USB sound card
dongle and a separate receiver to provide the audio do you duplicate the
problem? This sounds like a hardware or operating system issue on the
laptop. Just an idea.

From my notes on helping setting up an FT-991 that might help.
Your RF gain will also affect signal level.  But different levels on the two computers for the same settings doesn't make sense.  Is there an AGC checkbox on the Windows Record device perhaps?

You do not need to record the Transmitter Class and ARRL Section for a
Field Day entry. All you need are dupe sheets for each band/mode. ARRL
Field Day has no logging requirement, only lists of callsigns worked.

Could not believe the number of times I heard stations on SSB asking for a
repeat of the Class/Section when you don't even have to write it down, and
there is no place on your entry to record it.

This is not like ARRL November Sweepstakes, where you get a multiplier for
each ARRL Section worked.
