20 Most Recent ICOM Informatique BP-196M, ICOM,IC-F3,IC-F4, 9.6v 1650mAh NiMH 2-Way Radio Questions & Answers


I use the ICOM OPC-478 cable along with the ICOM F3GS software. In order to use the OPC-478 cable with WINDOWS 7, it will be necessary to go to the site

www.icomamerica.com

choose support (not option 1) and look for the updated driver package for WINDOWS 7. When that has been downloaded and installed, it will be necessary to go into that part of the control device manager and change the port to "COM2".

I am now able to program both my IC-F3GS and the IC-F4GS.

There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try.

1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?

Good luck with your problem...I hope you can work it out.

Hi....

if you go to the FCC website and look up the FRS/GMRS info you will find a listing to links that can show you the frequiences for the two radio services...or you can look up Midland model GXT900/950 /series radios and in their specifications gives a frequency chart. the link is WWW.midlandradio.com

Charging a battery requires two components. A working charger and a functioning battery. The concept is simple. A battery charger must output more voltage than the battery does, and at an acceptable current level. First determine the battery output from the ID sticker, then measure the charger output. It must be 1 or 2 volts more than the battery output. If the charger is working, charge the battery overnight. If the battery does not charge or runs down quickly, the battery must be replaced. All batteries have a limited number of charge cycles. The most common problem with Ni-Cad batteries happens when they are re-charged before they are completely discharged. Recharging a half used Ni-Cad sets up a short term memory and the battery discharges faster than normal.

In the USA, repair and service of a radio frequency transmitter requires a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd class FCC license. The other bad news is the radio probably uses a solid-state chip for tuning, so special tools will be needed to remove and install a new chip. This is best left to a factory repair center.

battery pack already exhausted or your charger is defective, check your charger by using voltmeter, if there is voltage output more than your battery voltage that means your battery needs replacement.

The 705 will operate on (8) frequencies in the 446Mhz range and (5) in the 464Mhz range. The 708 operates on 446Mhz. Please note that the links provided mention they operate in "public frequency band" of South Africa. These radios were not intended to be used in other countries. See below for more.

In the U.S.(and many, many other countries), the 420Mhz - 450Mhz frequency range is set aside by the FCC (and other bodies) for licensed operation by amateur radio operators. Portions of the 460Mhz range is set aside by the FCC for use by Public Safety Agencies - mostly local police and fire departments. In the U.S., the Family Radio Service (FRS is 462Mhz) is an unlicensed band and General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS is 467 Mhz) requires a licensed.

As you might have guessed, unlicensed or unauthorized transmissions are ILLEGAL. You may be fined, imprisoned or both if caught by the FCC. If using these radios in a location other than South Africa, consult that county's communication authority BEFORE transmitting. You cannot transmit legally in the U.S. with these radios.
