    Icom has released a new program for Windows and Android to allow you to update the clock of your USB enabled Icom radio from your computer. The manual states that this works for the Icom 705, 7100, 7300, 7600, 7610, 7850/51, and 9700. It is a simple little program and worth checking out. Here is a video I made about it:

    I guess this solves the internal clock battery issue.

    this looks like a useless up date for apple computers users!

    I personally have no use for this but it makes a 'feller wonder why they went through the trouble to make the application and didn't give an option to auto run/update at computer startup or at a user defined interval.

    Perhaps lack of memory in the radios.

    Thank you for posting your fine video, Drew; it will come in handy for my IC-9700. Now if there was only a similar fix for my Elecraft K3...! (such fine rigs but with continually wonky clocks)

    73,

    I don't know why they did either. You can hook up a gps if you need real accuracy. You could also script CI-V commands to sync with the system clock.
    Is this even an issue? I set the clock on an IC-7100 2 months ago. Just checked it for the first time and it's still within 2 seconds.
    They didn't give the option to run at certain times because that functionality already exists in every modern OS, and if that's too much of a "deep dive" for someone, scheduler apps are a dime a dozen.

    WSJT-X system requirement necessitates ". . . synchronizing the computer clock to UTC within ±1 second." Sortof analogous to throwing the football too soon for the wide receiver to catch the ball.
