[chirp_users] IC-2200H - error message when trying to download (Marcelo XQ6BQ)Re: chirp_users Digest, Vol 67, Issue 25

Rolan, W3FDK here, 



I used the speaker jack to 9 pin D connector  to  serial to USB  (FTDI ) and  turned on the radio and on Chirp  >  Radio  and selected  Icom  and auto detect and it downloaded the memory data. 



The IC2200H  screen displayed CL  OUT  then back to normal display after download  and all the  memories and  DSTAR  data was there as far as I could tell. 



Maybe what was described in the trouble query  is for rig to rig clone? 



I hope this helps,

Hello, maybe someone can give me some light... 
I was looking everywhere for an answer but found nothing, so apologies if 
this has been discussed before. 

Latest CHIRP, Windows 7, Prolific driver OK. 
Brand new USB (Prolific) cable for IC-2200H, connector to rig seems to fit 
well. 

I've used CHIRP with Baofeng UV-5R and Yaesu FT-60R, worked perfect. 

Now, when connecting IC-2200H to PC and trying to download memories, this 
message appears: 
An error has occurred 
Failed to communicate with the radio: Unexpected response from radio. 

I don't have a spare cable or another IC-2200H to check if the problem is 
there. 

Perhaps I'm not following the proper sequence to download data from this 
particular radio? 
1) Connect cable to radio and to PC 
2) Launch CHIRP 
3) While pushing [M/CALL], turn power ON (?CLONE? appears on the radio's 
display) 
4) Go to CHIRP's "Download from radio" menu but touch nothing yet 
5) Push [S.MW ] on the radio. ?CL OUT? appears on the display. 
6) Click OK to CHIRP dialog... Then it briefly shows the small "cloning" 
window and then the error message. 

Any suggestions? 

Thanks!! 

73,

This is something I was thinking of opening a problem ticket on.  It is 
confusing, obviously, to many to have the default and "no tone" setting 
to be a tone.  In this case 88.5.  We use 88.5 on some repeaters locally 
and having the "no setting" setting the same as "in use setting" both be 
88.5 is confusing for a quick look at the grid.  I got confused, myself, 
when going through the grid and had to go back to he repeater book to 
figure out if these were really in use or not.  One used two different 
tones and one was 88.5 and, once again, I had to go back and double 
check and make sure if this was in use or "no tone". 

I would also like to see a NONE setting in the Tone columns for a more 
positive indication that there is no tone used here. 

Another confusion is when you query the Repeater Guide, if no tone is in 
use, it comes back 88.5 and you have to then investigate further to see 
if this is real or "no tone" usage of 88.5. 

All around confusing and since software is there to help us, it should 
not impede progress by adding useless confusion when it is so easy to do 
it "right" and show NONE when NONE is the correct setting rather than 
duplicating a valid setting. 

Even the stupid Wouxun software, for all its faults, does this 
properly.  Seems like better software (CHIRP) could do at least that 
good.  Right? 

I have been a programmer for most of my life.  If I set a real entry as 
the setting for NONE, I would have been fired!

Mike, 

Click "View" in the menu bar. Then enable "Hide Unused Fields". 

Now unused fields will be blank. You won't need "no tone" because there 
will be no tone value listed (it will be blank). 

CHIRP was recently updated so that new installations will have "Hide Unused 
Fields" enabled by default.
