Icom note:Radios which are driven by the Icom CI-V protocol have a 'radio address'.
Just enter the appropriate CI-V address (in hex) for the particular radio in the Settings window and your radio should work with TrunkView!
PCR-100 / PCR-1000 / (PC)R-1500 / (PC)R-2500 users only have to check the 'PCR model' box.
To operate an Icom R1500 with TrunkView
Connect and determine the COM port being used by the R1500 (need only be done the first time).
Thereafter do NOT use VFO or PC Mode (TrunkView will control the radio), exit the control panel and leave R1500 powered ON and connected to PC.
Connect Audio lead from Ext SP to Line in/Microphone socket of PC.
Go to Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device manager->Ports and find the COM port installed by the 'USB to UART bridge controller'. (COM port used by the R1500)
Open the Properties of this COM port, check Port settings and select 38400 as baudrate. (default will be 9600).
Open the Settings window.
Set Sound Device to your PC's sound card.
Go to RS232 and select the previously edited COM port, baudrate 38400, select Radio type Icom and tick 'PCR model'.
Uniden note:Uniden radios organize memory channels in two different ways:
1. the traditional banks, with a fixed number of channels per bank.
2. the recent radios have 'Dynamic Allocated Channel' memory. This means that all channels belong to a pool, and when a channel is needed, it is allocated to the group where it is needed.
Users of a traditional radio have to select a memory channel for the frequency manipulations. (Default: channel 500).
These types include: UBC245XLT, UBC780XLT, UBC785XLT, BC895XLT, BC898T, UBC3300XLT
If you have a radio with Dynamic channels, you only have to tick the 'Dynamic Memory' box.
These types include: BCT15, USC230, BC246T, BR330T, BCD396T, UBC800XLT, BCD996T, UBC3500XLT.
