    Hi all.

    Was wondering if anyone who has a icom 7600 and pr781 mic care to share their settings for the EQplus please? And settings on 7600.

    I am no sound guru and I have no idea what knob does what.

    Just looking to get general settings for this mic for DX.

    Thanks a million

    The front panel labeling each section should be all self indicating.
    At the very least use a pair of headphones to hear the effects of your setting.
    Study the user manual for setting to begin with and the jack assignments on the rear.
    Once your satisfied with the units audio, plug your headphones into the radio and use the radio monitor function to hear the result.
    But do not expect the radio to sound as good as the output from the EQ+ due to the radio bandwidth being narrower.
    For DX you don't really need the EQ+ because you would normally attenuate the lower frequencies in favor of intelligibility under more difficult conditions.
    This can be done right in the radio without the EQ+.
    Generally the use of the processor is designed do this.
    Be sure your not mixing fine audio with preferred DX audio.
    They tend not to be the same.
