Re: New life for an old banger

Sorry to resurrect an old post but I have just been given an IC 502A (if OzPost can find it) this would be a good project for a portable rig. Maybe using an Arduino VFO

Bridge

Anyone know anything about these Impedance Bridges? I am looking for a manual/diagram anything to help me get this gear working. Seems like it is too good just to leave in the (not so) Junk box. Any help would be appreciated. So far I have looked on the interwebby thing.

Re: Codan 9350 ATU with IC-718 or TS-480S

Thanks for the feedback. The antenna works well but I need to obtain the stainless whip for it to work properly. Comparison between dipole on 40 and the short antenna on the atu is 3s points. I took the short whip off and using a set of vice grips and a 2.5 meter length of wire and it will now tune ...

Hi Adrian, My experience is only with the IC706, but from memory there is an item in the SET Menu (also called the Hidden Menu) called A-TUNE STRT and another called PTT-TUNE. If your 718 has these, try experimenting with them. Also on the 706, the auto tune start button has a bright red LED and di...

Re: Codan 9350 ATU with IC-718 or TS-480S

I have wired up the Codan 9350 to my IC718 and it works but I need some advice from anyone that as used the tuner. A couple of questions 1.

Rob
thanks for the info. I have a question about the 12v from the radio is it capable of supplying the current required by the 9350?
I am waiting on delivery of the data plug for the 9350 hopefully today or tomorrow
