ROY’S HELPLINE for Amateurs and Electronic Enthusiasts.
Wanted,Wanted, Help with getting an Icom IC7000 back to full working condition. Help required, is
to be able to program the radio from the PC using RT systems programming and cable. For some
reason the radio will not see the PC.
I would appreciate someone dropping round to my QTH in Bentley to check what is going on
maybe there is a problem in the menus, a setting that needs changing.
All worked well in the past. A pair of good eyes might solve the problem.
Phone 0418 916 538.
QTH, not correct in the 2016 call book.
Thank you
Trevor VK6YJ
