Re: ICOM IC-PCR1000 and WISPDDE



Hi Sion Chow,

Here is a screen shot of the PCR-1000 setup I've used with WispDDE:

With these settings, you can now use Wisp to select the filter width--all you have to do is make sure Wisp uses the 'FM-N" setting (and the correct frequency) in the frequency setup for AO-51.  Then, WispDDE will translate it to mean "50 kHz" :)   (The same principle applies for other filter widths and frequency mode selection in Wisp.)

Hope that helps!  I plan to be 38k4 active tonight, too!  Hope to see a post from you.

I'll be interested in hearing of your 38k4 successes with the PCR-1000.  My experience has been that is seems not nearly as sensitive as either my TS-2000X or TS-790A with Symek filter boards...

73,
