Hi Basil,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thanks for looking at what I sent. I have a crazy week ahead, but will try to methodically pick through all pieces you suggest below and send output from the right utility scripts when I have it.
My IC-7000 is one of the earlier production models, so the documentation is the old ICOM "fat" manual style and is indexed but organized somewhat haphazardly. I will download a more recent PDF version so I can search it.

While I can see what configuration you are using for the DRAWS card I don't have any visibility into how you have your IC-7000 setup.
The documentation that I have is what worked for me. Initially I was over driving the input into the radio. That's why I set the DAC Right/Left Playback Power Tune to the lowest value PTM_P1
The symptom you are having suggests you should change that back to default, PTM_P3. Have you checked your mike gain?
What are you setting your transmit pass band to?
The IC-7000 manual gives the transmit audio level required:
0.4 Vp-p (0.2 Vrms): recommended level
0.2–0.5 Vp-p (0.1–0.25 Vrms): acceptable level
Have you measured that?
Use John's control panel or Bryan's spreadsheet to determine what your settings should be based on the transmit audio level requirements from the IC-7000 manual page 116.
If you need to generate a calibration tone:
The measure_deviate.sh script lives in this directory: n7nix/deviation
The FLdigi mode I successfully used was Olivia 8/500.
When sending you configuration I prefer the console output of alsa-show.sh
I know it is hard to keep track of all the early experiments folksWhat I'm missing is the configuration of the radio and in the case of the IC-7000 both the HF & VHF/UHF radios.
