Having recently been burned by Icom I will wait to see that on the
Elecraft the Ref In is really for a 10MHz GPSDO lock and not just
"calibration" and that the claim "all mode" really is all mode up to and
including 9600 Packet.

Other than that it looks pretty good...

The K4 only has one antenna connector for VHF/UHF so I doubt it will do full
duplex for satellite operation.

Since it is a SDR, wouldn't it be nice if the outputs could be reassigned to
specific output terminals????

 ?? I followed the first hint of a Icom IC-9700 and I kept a close eye
on it and when they added the 10MHz ref in I plopped down some money and
got on the reservation list for one.? When I received it I found out the
the reference in is nothing more than like the crystal calibrators of
old and used for calibration, it does not lock the oscillator like on
the 7610 or other radios that have a reference in.

 ?? When the radio sits on your desk? it gets pretty warm and then when
you key up the fan kicks on and on 23cm SSB you can watch it drift 70Hz
or more and then it slowly drifts? back, not what you would expect for a
modern radio in 2019, there are rumors that Icom may do a firmware patch
to run the fan all the time to help with the drift, but a real reference
in would have fixed this, I did a fan mod to run the fan all the time
and yes it helps but the drift is still there.

 ?? The more important thing to me though is that my old IC-820 and my
IC-821 and my IC-910 and my IC-9100 all supported 9600 packet, for some
25 years Icom has? provided the ability to do 9600 but for whatever
reason they dropped support on the 9700 and failed to mention it,
contacting Icom support they acted like they had never heard of 9600
packet,? It's still being advertised as "All modes including FM, SSB,
AM, CW, RTTY, Digital, D-Star Digital Voice and Digital Data", the
digital part after RTTY is 1200 AFSK in Icom's mind, and why I am leery
when someone says all mode now.

 ? Don't get me wrong, there will be many people who will use and love?
their 9700 and not notice these issues, and I also could deal with the
drift? but the 9600 missing is really a burn to me.

 ? So it's either Icom comes out with a firmware patch to fix the 9600
issue (losing hope on that one) or I go back to my 9100 (probably the
best) or I get another 910? or some other 2nd radio to get 9600 packet back.

Yeah, me too. I will be looking for the 9600 packet. I'm feeling confident
that Elecraft will do the GPS correctly. But who knows how long it will be
before the 2m and 70cm module will be available, and is it fullduplex?

An International Space Station school contact has been planned with
participants at Curtin Primary School, Canberra, Australia

on 20 May. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 08:39 UTC. It is
recommended that you start listening approximately 10 minutes before this
time. The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds.
The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and K6DUE. The contact should
be audible over the east coast of the U.S. Interested parties are invited to
listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be
conducted in English.





Curtin Primary School is located within the Australian Parliamentary
triangle of Canberra which is the capital city of Australia.

Our school of 500+ students revolves around creating opportunities for
excellence for each student. Our graduates are effective learners,
innovators and thinkers who are prepared for the challenges of secondary
schooling and beyond. At Curtin Primary, we deliver the Australian
Curriculum through contemporary teaching approaches. We provide a broad
curriculum that values each learning area and dedicates time for students to
learn how to learn. Our expert teachers are constantly learning from
educational research and through collaborative planning and reflection. Our
teachers provide individualized approaches to foster each student's academic
and social development. Teachers spark each student's natural curiosity
through rich inquiry learning. Our curriculum is designed to provide
opportunities for students to learn about themselves, their world and ways
to interact with it as effective citizens. At Curtin Primary, we believe
learning is enhanced through community partnerships. We are
 privileged to receive ongoing support from our community and encourage our
families to participate in all aspects of school life. Parents and family
members support the school by sharing their personal and professional
expertise with students, guiding student readers, participating in the
student program and through fundraising. We also engage community
organizations to provide opportunities for curriculum enrichment programs in
areas of student interest, particularly those with a STEM focus. Our school
community is very excited about the forthcoming ISS link up in May.Teachers
have been showing live footage of the ISS and students have submitted

About ARISS



Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative
venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that
support the International Space Station (ISS).  In the United States,
sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American
Radio Relay League (ARRL), the ISS National Lab and National Aeronautics and
Space Administration (NASA). The primary goal of ARISS is to promote
exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)
topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew
members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or public forms. Before
and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and
communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio. For
more information, see www.ariss.org.



Thank you & 73,

David - AA4KN
