Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

My Icom A22 has excessive interference with the 'Rx' symbol light up. Squelch setting is reduced to a minimum. Radio has same effect using either the supplied wipe aerial or a fixed aerial. At times reception can be perfect, then long periods of 'Rx' with noise, but no clear 'voice' coming through. The radio is used on an aircraft with electronic ignition, but reception good at times, but now predominently poor with mostly Rx noise - has worked perfectly in the past. Simon

    I will try switching of the automaic noise level, and using 'zero' squelch, I will probably be flying this weekend.

    I have access to an ICOM A3 radio so I will also take this and try it, to eliminate the aircraft charging system.

    I use the radio only (i.e. battery pack not fitted), supplied by the aircraft 12v battery.

    I will talk agin once I have tried these optio out,

Have you added any new devices to your craft lately.... computers are horrid noise generaters.

If at all possible, have you tried using the radio without the Interference Eliminator Code or Carrier Squelch set at 0?

Since the beep works, chances are the audio amp is OK leaving us with only the auto muting (code activated) and/or the if/demodulator stage.

I will not include the RF stages since I am assuming that you have tested its reception with the TX radio pretty close to the non RXing radio.

Rx symbol is displayed all the time and will not switch off.

It sounds like you have CTCSS (tone squelch) or DCS (Digital coded squelch) turned on, but the normal squelch setting is set too low. This will stop scanning, and as the radio thinks there is a valid signal, it will not transmit. I have no idea what radio you are using, but this is a common situation with modern radio's.

How do I get an icom ic f21 radio that sends a signal to another one receive from another one?

Relays are complicated.. expecially in the same band... but if you have two transceivers which do not interfere with each other, then a relay unit can be made by building a 'carrier detect circuit and relay output' to control the TX/RX of each rig and correctly adjusting the audio levels fed to each.....

How do I reduce/eliminate the volume of the static between transmissions

To reduce the static bursts between radio transmissions alter the squelch setting on the radio. You must have a laptop or computer with programming software for that specific model of radio as well as the appropriate programming cable for that model radio.
Once you have downloaded the program from the radio to the computer via the program, change the squelch setting. A nominal squelch setting I use for any radios I program is 75 or higher. After making the alterations to the program, save it to a file on your computer and upload that file to the radio. Turn the radio off and on as necessary.
This should take care of the problem. If it still persists, increase the squelch setting.
Another possible fix is to change the squelch TYPE. If the radio is set to use a type "CSQ" squelch setting it will pick up ALL transmissions on the frequency programmed into the radio.
To alter this you must use the radio programming software for the radio in question and change the CSQ squelch type setting to DPL squelch type setting and assign a DPL code unique to group of radios you are using. If you pick up any cross talk from other users you can simply change the DPL code to a different DPL code. A very commonly used code would be 023N try to avoid using it. A code in the 200-300 range should be good enough.
If you have 2 or more radios they must all have the changes made to them or else they WILL NOT communicate with each other.
Hope this helps have an excellent day.

Homepatrol scans but does not stop at any signels

Squelch setting set too high perhaps, reduce the squelch until you can hear something, then turn it up slowly until it start to scan again.
Radio Control Bar
The row of buttons across the top of the Main screen lets you fine-tune HomePatrol-1 reception, access Help, and reenter system configuration.
Sets how strong a signal must be before HomePatrol-1 stops on it.
Controls how many channels are selected based on your location and systems' locations. Small range settings result in fewer systems and departments selected. A selection bar lets you set the range in 2-mile increments. Each screen tap is 0.5 miles.
Atten (Attenuation)
Reduces signal interference if you are in an area where there are a lot of radio signals. If Attenuation is set to ON, the status indicator turns red.
Displays the status of a connected GPS unit.
Displays Help text.
Tap and hold to redo initial setup configuration.

Transmission distance problem on Sennheiser G2 wireless

I regularly use G2 ew100+300 systems, which have a manual squelch adjustment on the reciever. Squelch is difficult to explain but here we go: a squelch adjustment gives you the options LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH these settings effect transmission distance and interference rejection. for example: a HIGH squelch is less prone to interference but has a shorter transmittion distance. A LOW squelch is more prone to interferance but allows for a longer transmission distance. For most applications, a MID squelch is fine. If this does not help- the next option would be to swap arials between units and see if the problem moves. The G2 series are a 30mw transmittion which has an effective range of about 50m
hope this helps.

The RX symbol and static noise would only appear if the squelch is down or if you are receiving something from a transmitter.

Receiving something could mean either an intelligent radio transmission from another comparable unit or this could also be spillover signals from adjacent radio transmitters strong enough to override the squelch settings normally called "splatter". At times, electronic devices could cause this effect such as RFI (radio frequency interference) from units such as a personal computer.

It is also possible that your Monitor Mode is "ON", turning it OFF would possibly resolve the issue To turn OFF monitor mode:Press the vol/mon UP or DOWN key. The RX icon will stop blinking and disappears.

In some cases, a component failure would cause this problem. Your GMR1035-2 uses an Automatic Squelch Feature, this would mean the use of a FM Discriminator Chip for Squelch Control. Most manufacturers uses an MC3357P IC chip for this purpose. This of course would require opening the unit, desoldering the suspected component and solder in a replacement. This would further require that you be familiar with electronic components, circuitry, DVM and a low wattage soldering iron. Should you not be comfortable doing this, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
