Another question:
Why the filter mode is not specified in the following lines? Can i add NOR in the command?
LST1NAME=MODE
LST1ITEMS=LSB,USB,CW
LST1CMDS=CMD_SET_MODE_LSB_NOR,CMD_SET_MODE_USB_NOR,CMD_SET_MODE_CW_NOR

Sorry Original file:
LST1NAME=MODE
LST1ITEMS=LSB,USB,AM,CW,FSK,FM,CW-R,RTTYR
LST1CMDS=CMD_SET_MODE_LSB,CMD_SET_MODE_USB,CMD_SET_MODE_AM,CMD_SET_MODE_CW,CMD_SET_MODE_FSK,CMD_SET_MODE_FM,CMD_SET_MODE_CW-R,CMD_SET_MODE_RTTYR

You're right. Is a mistake in the config file. As I don't have an Icom to play with, I count on Icom owners to play with the configs. It seems that no other IC-718 owner tried that config till now.
More details about this specific command here:
http://www.plicht.de/ekki/civ/civ-p33.html

If you update the config to extend the functionality, I can put your config in the central repository as a version with your name/callsign.

Thank you for report.

Hello Dan, I agree. Let me time to work on the file and find a good configuration for the 718. I will send that soon. 73

Dear Dan,
What is your mail to send the config file?

You can click on the envelope in the bottom of my web page, or send a private message here, in the forum.

Thank you.

hi,

I have some difficulties in radio feeback section. I have something like this:

POLLING=CMD_READ_MODE,CMD_READ_FREQ

CMD_READ_MODE=02,01,FE,FE,<A>,E0,04,FD,<R>,08,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00=LSB;01=USB;02=AM;03=CW>,<00>,<00>

CMD_READ_FREQ=01,01,FE,FE,<A>,E0,03,FD,<R>,0B,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<rec_byte_6>,<rec_byte_7>,<rec_byte8>,<rec_byte_9>,<rec_byte_10>,<00>

my ic718 reply in 11 bytes format and I don't know how to set paramaters: "rec_byte_6...rec_byte10"

(cmd_read_mode works well)

thanks for help

According to this page:
http://www.plicht.de/ekki/civ/civ-p32.html
"Frequency data is transferred using the BCD (binary coded decimal) code. For historical reasons there are two data lengths used: 4 and 5 bytes. Practically all rigs use 5 bytes of data, only one old model uses 4-byte length: the IC-735 (IC-731 in Japan). Most rigs can be set to 'IC-731' compatibility, reducing the used data length for frequencies to four bytes.
In the remaining document I will discuss only 5 byte length data formats."

So I consider you have a radio set to 5 byte length.
The frequency digits are packed as BCD (two digits per byte).
The tag used for this is <Dxy>, where x is the digit represented by the bits 7-4 and y the digit represented by the bits 3-0.

For iCOM radios digit numbers are from 0 (Hz), 1 (10Hz) ... 8(100MHz), 9(GHz):
and the digits are transmitted in the following order:
10,32,54,76,98
so for example the frequency 145.225125 MHz is represented as 4 bytes:
25,51,22,45,01
The correct read radio frequency the command is:
CMD_READ_FREQ=01,01,FE,FE,<A>,E0,03,FD,<R>,0B,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<D10>,<D32>,<D54>,<D76>,<D98>,<00>

Hope is more clear now.

Hello Dan i'm trying with this configuration but when I change frequency on my icom718 the application does not change its frequency. However, if I change the mode my ic718 will return automatically on the mode show on ptrx.

CMD_READ_MODE=04,01,FE,FE,<A>,E0,04,FD,<R>,08,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00=LSB;01=USB;02=AM;03=CW>,<00>,<00>

CMD_READ_FREQ=01,01,FE,FE,<A>,E0,03,FD,<R>,0B,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<D10>,<D32>,<D54>,<D76>,<D98>,<00>

POLLING=CMD_READ_FREQ,CMD_READ_MODE

Hi Pascal,

There is any setting in the radio to switch between 4 bytes and 5 bytes frequency representation?
Maybe your radio is set for 4 bytes, so you may check the command:
CMD_READ_FREQ=01,01,FE,FE,<A>,E0,03,FD,<R>,0A,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<00>,<D10>,<D32>,<D54>,<D76>,<00>
