Summary0001728: IC-7700 add on/off functionality to Rig Control
DescriptionCustomer requests ability to turn IC-7700 on/off (or perhaps standby) via Rig Control. Please investigate if this is possible.

May be an undocumented feature - see below:

Dear Sir,
           Thank you for your very prompt reply, I select my Transceiver in the drop down list of Transceiver manufacturers
"Icom", then I select the model, ic7700 I make sure all the connections match in both the Transceiver settings and ham radio deluxe, correct baud connection, correct civ address 74h then press "connect", failed to read frequency message appears. I then close ham radio deluxe and try another program called TRX Manager press the software button marked power in TRX Manager, which I assume is the same as "connect", in Ham Radio Deluxe.
If the Icom Transceiver is already switched on then Ham Radio Deluxe goes straight to the frequency that is displayed by the Transceiver icom ic7700. if I put the Icom into standby mode re run ham radio deluxe it will not connect, it just displays the message "failed to read frequency",
hope this is of some help to you so the issue here is you select your transceiver manufacturer, then you select your version (in this case ic7700, check that the settings of ham radio deluxe match the transceivers settings and press "connect", nothing happens !
Additional InformationCheck out TRX from Hosenose software.

The IC-7700 manual says that the 0x18-00 and 0x18-01 commands are supported, but doesn't provide the details that manuals for other models provide. I've added code to enable the on/off feature in the same way we work the feature for other Icom models. It will need to be tested by someone with access to an IC-7700.

Fixed in the 6.5 branch with this checkin:

I didn't mean to fix it for 6.4; I just wasn't paying attention. Doesn't seem worth it to revert the change, so ...

Bill Morton (W4ASE) has agreed to test this within the next week.

We've got one user who will test this after the release.

Word I got back from two users who tested this was that it didn't work. I'm collecting more info.

We'll call this validated for the IC-7700.


Report by Bill Morton (W4ASE)

Here are my findings.

You have two radios definitions listed for the 7700 – a plain 7700 and a 7700v2 – I have always used the 7700 v2 since it was released – I can’t remember now what the v2 was supposed to fix??? But I have always used it.

The plain 7700 does ask to switch off the radio upon close – and both options work - so it is working

The 7700 v2 DOES NOT ask.

So just apply the change to the 7700 v2 definition and you are set – or think about just having one 7700 definition available so it cuts down on confusion.
