    Very nice!

    I’ve been playing with Arduino projects for about a month, and have a PRC-1000 sitting here doing nothing at the moment. This looks like a great project to take up. I’d love to see your code once you post it.

    Thanks.

      Hi Patrick,

      If you fell like starting a project like mine, before I have a chance to clean up the code, let me know, I will send you my code with pleasure.

      Thank You for your comment

        Can you kindly post the pde and library files for us?

        Thanks!

        Hi Claudio,

        I did not have time to work on the project for the last few months. It is very experimental and the frequencies are hard coded.

        I will try to clear up the source code as soon as possible and post-it on my blog.

    Thanks Alain,

    I just sent you an email via the address listed on qrz.com. I’d love to get a copy to start playing around with this. I should have all the hardware ready in about a week or so.

    Thanks again,
    W9PDS

    Hi,

    I’m working on a similar project (front end for CI-V comms to an 706mkIIg). Does the PCR talk CI-V? If so, any tips on how to do the serial print? I seem to be missing something very basic with how I send the CI-V code. Looking at your schematics, am I right in that the pcr uses true rs232 levels as opposed to ttl?

    And yes, once you’re done, I’d love to see your sketch.

    • ve2cuy says:

      Looking at DF4OR documentation for the CI-V structure command – http://www.plicht.de/ekki/civ/civ-p0a.html -, I believe the PCR-1000 is not using CI-V but a custom protocol.

      That protocol is documented on GM4JJJ web site at: http://www.gm4jjj.co.uk/PCR1000.html

      For the RS232 part, yes the Icom PCR1000 uses ‘true rs232 levels’, that’s why I had to use a MAX232 in my project.

      Hi Elizabeth:
      I saw your post on ve2cuy website pertaining to interfacing a Icom 706 with a arduino. I am in the process of doing the same thing, however I am new to arduino and am trying to figure it out also.
      My project consists of using the arduino to control a screwdriver antenna in the mobile. I want to take
      only the frequency information, displaying it on a 20 x 4 LCD and at the same time tuning the antenna
      based on the frequency of the radio. I do not like tuning a screwdriver antenna while in transmit mode.
      I know this can be done because a friend of mine has done it. However all his information is in his head and he has nothing written down on paper that he is willing to share.
      My idea is to use the arduino to read the frequency of the radio, compare it to a look up table and move
      the antenna based strictly on frequency. The motor in the antenna has to be changed to a stepper motor and a microswitch has to be installed at the bottom of the travel that will index the antenna and
      start counting from zero. Then comparing the frequency in the radio to a look up table, move the antenna so it is resonate with the frequency of the radio. This all sounds easy but in fact is quite complex.
      What are you trying to accomplish with your radio and arduino??

    Hi i own a pcr1000 and am interested in connecting it to arduino for manual control ,would you please let me know what elecronic hardware i need ,and how program it
    thanks very much
    ps not very good with computers ,never used for programing
    thanks again Alan

      Hi Allan,

      The schematic diagram of the project is on my blog.

      For the source code (it’s coming), my experimental version should be adequate for testing and having fun with your IC-1000.

    Hello
    I’m trying to do this project, but when trying to load the software. Arduino with a ATMega328, I get many errors and not let me compile or load.
    It is possible some file downloader found or would be so kind as to send it by mail?.
    Thanks, Greetings from Spain.

    Hello ve2cuy,

    Thanks! I will give it a try!

    Please, let us informed about any improvements.

    Best regards,

    Claudio

    Bravo,

    I am starting to play with Arduino, your project looks real nice, will have to talk more about it, live…

    Hello,

    I just ordered a Arduino with a ATMega328. Are you going to update the software when you have time?

    Hello,

    I got the interface working on my PCR-100.

    Thanks again Dave

    • Alex says:

      Hi did u change the Code to get it to work ?

      • ve2cuy says:

        Hi Alex,

        I’m not sure I understand your question.

        When I wrote this application (in 2011), it was working perfectly.

        However, it’s been a while since I have recompile it.

        Maybe there are corrections to be made with the new Arduino IDE.

    Hello Alain,
    Just came across this very interesting project. I am the owner of a PCR-1000 and was looking forward to duplicate your project, but the sketch link is dead…any chance I could get a copy of the code?

    Thanks in advance!
    Fernando

  12. Bill says:

    Hi Alain,

    I would appreciate copy of your sketch for the PCR-1000.

    Regards,

  13. Stephan says:

    Good morning,
    Any idea on when you will place the code on your website ?
    I have built the same hardware and would really like to give a try
    Thanks in advance
    Steph

    Hi there .not able to download the latest version of the sketch you have for the project it would be nice if the link was working again

    Thanks for the great project
