My 'reading' is: radio OFF, power supply ON.
Hi. Wrote a small Python 3.7 script which will sync the IC7300 with the PC clock.
Might be interesting for one who will or cannot change lithium battery.
I had the same problem with my IC-7100. I changed the battery and less than a year the problem came back. I will replace a MAXELL ML1220 and see how it will behave. What is not reasonable is that we have to keep replacing this battery. PY1WZ - Valerio - Brazil.
A "socketed" battery (i.e., user replaceable) would have many techs out of work....
It's pathetic, my IC 7300 is in use for at least 14 hours every day ( 7 days a week) sometimes longer but has to be reset every morning.
There may be a overcharging problem also.
Looks like there is no protection for over or under charging.
I would be tempted to replace the battery with a internally protected type.
Yesterday my 7300 was switched on from 11oo UTC until 2330 UTC. I switched on this morning at 0800 UTC the clock read 2000/01/01 00:00 ( local time), The UTC was set at 2099/12/31, I assume these to be the defaults. Booted up DXCommander and the clock was reset to the correct UTC time. Just needed to reset the local time to +1.
Thank you Dave AA6YQ author of DXLab Suite, it may have been unintended but you solved yet another problem for me.
