The Radio Programmer Is for so Much More than Just Memory Management.
The programming process begins by first installing the program then installing (and allowing) the drivers for the cable. Be sure to complete both of these steps.
Save your file as you work. This is a computer, after all, and you would hate to lose your work should the system fail. Actually, create and save as many files as you want or need. You could have one file for home, a different one for the vacation house, another for the trip to your son’s house, another for the yearly 3K run and picnic where you help direct traffic and want the radio to be programmed with only the frequencies for that event. Remember, radio programming is an overwrite process. Everything in the radio is replaced by everything in the file.
DR MemoriesThe DR Channels are special memories of the radio used for quick manual D-Star setup from the radioâ€™s face. D-Star channels do not have to Be programmed here Before Being saved to memory.
Satellite Memories20 pair of Uplink and Downlink frequencies for satellite operations.
VFOThe program makes available the same VFOs as in the radio (usually one per band). Remember these are not real memory channels since the details are lost as soon as you tune the radio manually. There is no one button recall for these. You do not need to program into VFO Before programming details into a memory channel. These channels are preprogrammed in the radio and while the frequency can Be changed to another within the band, they cannot Be left blank.
CallHome/Call channels are special memories accessed through one button recall on the radio. These channels are preprogrammed in the radio and while the frequency can Be changed to another within the band, they cannot Be left blank.
GPS MemoriesOnce stored in the radio during GPS operations, these channels are read from the radio with the other details.
Memories and D-Star ColumnsThe IC-9100 handles D-Star setting on HF, VHF, UHF and 1.2 GHz Memories. Every memory channel in the Programmer has D-Star specifics. The D-Star columns Become active once Operating Mode is set to DV.
|Set "My Callsign" to your FCC issued callsign.|
The list of Your Callsigns is just storage. The callsigns used during a transmission are programmed in the memory channel. This list is available to make a selection from; however, the callsign does not need to Be entered here first.
Tx messages, name/location/equipment details, etc., scroll on the radio receiving your call.
|Make programming D-Star channels easy with the built in D-Star Calculator. The information is updated automatically on your system with Programmer updates. Use the Calculator to automatically enter Callsigns and extensions along with frequency details.. no more space counting to get those extensions right! Set up channels for any D-Star function (talk channel, a link to a repeater or reflector, unlink, echo test, etc.) or details for a DV Access Point with just a few simple mouse clicks.|
