    It doesn't take long configuring N1MM Logger+ for the new Icom 7610.

    The new Icom 7610 isn't listed in many Ham Radio software programs, but it is in N1MM Logger+ and MacloggerDX.

    With the two virtual COM ports in the Icom 7160, N1MM Logger+ can be configured easily to operate RTTY (FSK).



    Ham Radio Deluxe, WSJT-X and JTAlert can be configured with a little workaround.

    See the complete articles on both at www.K0PIR.us.

    73 and Merry Christmas!

    Does anyone use FSK any more...or RTTY for that matter except when forced to in a RTTY only event?

    That's a good question. I hear Hams on RTTY, especially in the 20 Meter RTTY section. If I call CQ I almost always get someone.

    It's a fun mode and especially so with the new Icom radios, the Icom 7300 and 7610. I am sure there are other newer transceivers that will do RTTY (FSK) too. Yaesu maybe??

    HRD and DM780 support RTTY (FSK) nowadays.

    RTTY contests are my favorite contests. Running an amp in a RTTY DX contest is especially challenging and exciting.

    There are some RTTY contests coming up pretty soon. This is a great time of year for them.

    73's,

    As a new ham, I've only been in two rtty contests, the Makrothen and CQ WW, but they were a lot of fun. A lot of folks join in on those. I only operate barefoot and it can be challenging.

    The IC-7610 uses virtually the same commands as the IC-7600 v2. Infact, the Icom command set is virtually the same from radio to radio with commands left out for features not available on the radio. So, programmatically, this is not a major issue.

    In HRD, I set the radio to the 7600 v2, and have full functionality. There may be several settings not available that are unique to the 7610. However, I haven't missed them yet. But have only had the radio a week, so I'm still learning where to find the bells and blow the whistles.

    Using N1MM Logger+ made RTTY contests a lot of fun for me. Of course I have to mention MMTTY! Great program.

    Good to know. I could not get the 7600 to work for mine. I hear others are having success with it.

    Glad to know it's working.

    Waiting for HRD update ;-)

    Rich,

    I also needed to change the default address on the 7610 from 89 to 7A. Which is the default of the 7600. Depending on the software, there may be a table or other restriction not recognizing the 89 hex address. Also it must use the v2 settings as this setting has the commands enabled for the second VFO.

    That's great. You're going to love it!

    NB, NR, AN, etc. are all top shelf. I love the RX on this rig.

    The Icom radios, 7300 and 7610 are capable of FSK. The filtering (TPF) is available in RTTY mode too.

    Icom 7300 FSK, N1MM, MMTTY
