[chirp_users] Icom T70 to MacBook not communicating

Wed Jul 31 05:46:09 PDT 2013


Greetings:

  I don't have any ICOM experience, but I know that with my Yaseu I have to push the PTT switch to send the radio info to CHIRP.  I then have to push the MONITOR switch to allow CHIRP to load back into the radio.  This flumoxed me for a while, as my Baofeng just sits there and communicates directly from the CHIRP commands.

  Hope this is helpful.

Good day,
          Marty Braun

Previously, I thought that I had maybe a cable problem, so today I used a known good cable (works with my KX3), but still no luck.  I'm running Mac OS 10.8.4 and installed Chirp 0.3.1 and KK7DS Python Runtime RIO.  I tired with just turning the radio on, and then with the radio placed in the Clone mode, but it makes no difference.
