This is a memory group file over satellite frequencies for Icom IC-705 and CS-705 software. It is not complete and will be updated. Feel free to use it, change and add, make your own groups etc.
The memories are used like this:
- Channels named with satellite name, for exemple ”PO-101 Split”, are used in split mode. This channel can be used when using the IC-705 for portable operation or without an extra receiver .
- The FM-satellites also has five split memories each with AOS-LOS frequencies – for portable operation without computer doppler tuning.
- Channels named with satellite name and Uplink, for exemple ”PO-101 Uplink”, are used only for uplink (not split). This can be used with software like SDR-Console v3 (external radio) or if you have an extra receiver.
- Channels named with satellite name and Downlink, for exemple ”RS-44 Downlink”, are used only for downlink (not split).
Import the memory file into CS-705:
Note! Be sure that you not overwrite anything in your IC-705 when cloning. Make a backup of your current settings!
- Create a new memory group
- Mark this new group
- Choose File->Import->Group and choose the .csv file
- The memories will now be imported to CS-705
- Clone to your IC-705
As CS-705 seems to handle character set different between regions I have now created two files. If one does not work, try the other one. Comma separated is working for North America.
RT Systems Memories example
The following explanation is from Jack Spitznagel – KD4IZ, for the RT Systems software.This brief explanation assumes that the RT Systems IC-705 Programmer user knows how to import memories into the software:
- Before you merge these into an existing RT Systems memory set, it is first necessary to open the .CSV file in a spreadsheet (Excel or Libre Office) and edit the Channel Number and Bank names. Save the edited file as a .CSV file.
- Channel numbers should be set to start numbering at the first open memory row (this example: if row 77 is your first open memory row, start numbering at 77, go up to 99).
- Bank numbers should be changed to the first open memory Bank # in the form “##:Bank Name”. In the example, “04:Satellite” was used because Bank 0, 1, 2, and 3 already have assigned names in the memopry file that was used. Interestingly, the “Satellite” Bank Name was not recorded which requires some easy editing of the new file.
- Save your RT Systems memory file to a NEW FILENAME so you don’t lose your settings. Users may want to edit the arrangement once the data is imported into the RT Systems IC-705 Programmer.
