Post Keypad for Icom IC 7300
Making it to go inline with the mic, ie 8 pin plug on one end, and 8 pin socket on the other.

It gives access to four memories, for CW, phone and RTTY.

Also adding up and down buttons, and a PTT button. Will also put and RCA socket on the box for the foot switch or hand held PTT.

So simple and cheap, don't know why I didn't do it before.

This one will stay on proto board permanently, not worth the time to make a PCB :)

The four buttons along the top are the memory buttons, the two on the right are the up and down, and the one by itself PTT.

Total of seven switches and 5 resistors, small box and the plug and sockets, so less than £3. Can't get something more functional for much less !

Good idea! I've always wanted to do something similar for my TS850.... up/down... memory input, and more importantly... playback buttons for my voice recorder that would bypass the VOX.

I wanted mine built into the desk surface, but this desk is reaching the end of it's life, so I'll wait until I next decorate and re-jig the shack around.

Ooooh! So pretty! :)

I have a thing for black and blue.

Don't laugh.... but I actually choose electronic components that are blue in my builds wherever possible.

With the linear/7300 box, the memory keypad here, and the tune button, thinking now I should put it all in one box with one cable connecting it.

Will be thinking what other functions it would be nice to have on a one button push, maybe mode/filter selection sort of things.

ive changed the design slightly now. I'll add a photo once its done.

To me the tune feature isnt that bad just ptt on the pedal but having a carrier at the push of a button can be handy
