Send a message immediately with your callsign for us to program into the controller, if you do not provide any programming information, it will be programmed with default values. ID-O-MATIC IV 4 built and tested (Includes programming for IDOM4). With VOICE AUDIO IDer board wired to and tested with IDOM4. With cable and wire to plug into the rear 15 pin connector of TKR720 TKR820 TKR-720 TKR-820 repeater (wire style may vary). Also has jumper on 15 pin connector to allow internal speaker to be used. The cable connections will disable the junk internal Kenwood controller and all repeater controller functions will be performed by the ID-O-MATIC IV. Simply PLUG and PLAY! (provided you have a stock good working repeater). Instantly turns your Kenwood 720 or 820 repeater into a legally IDing repeater with enhanced audio quality, many features and MUCH easier to program or reprogram. Default parameters: ID every 10 minutes when active, Time Out Time 4 minutes, TX hang time 2 seconds, courtesy beep. If you want something different you MUST send message IMMEDIATELY.

ID timer/repeater controller with Morse code output. Keyed CW, audio, and PTT outputs. PTT/audio combination for keying HTs. AMPLIFIED audio mixer for repeater audio and ID. Optional de-emphasis for repeater audio. Super-easy USB port for configuration. Fan control with auto delay (200 ma MAX, fan relay option highly suggested). The big question is: How does the ID-O-Matic IV compare to the ID-O-Matic II and III? All IDs are “polite”. Morse code IDs are attenuated if the repeater is in use. Voice IDs are replaced by a Morse ID if someone is talking. And, you can set an optional early ID timer to let the ID-O-Matic IV try to ID when the repeater is idle. A real-time clock lets you synchronize beacons to the clock time, and can even be kept accurate with input from a GPS receiver. “Quiet time” lets you silence beacon transmissions during selected hours (like at night). The circuit board is slightly larger than the -III (3″ x 1.95″ / 7.6cm x 4.95cm) , keeps the same connector locations, and the same mounting hole locations. The DB9 connector and serial port used on the ID-O-Matic II are replaced by a USB mini-B connector. The 10-pin terminal block used on the ID-O-Matic III is replaced with a 12 pin block. The pinouts are similar. There’s a second ground for the audio output, and an added an output to indicate when the ID-O-Matic is sending an ID or a beacon. A dedicated output can switch power to a cooling fan, with user-specified turn-off delay. All I/O signal polarity is set via the setup menu; there are no jumpers to set. The board is better optimized for repeater use, with improved volume control. Receiver audio has enough gain to drive virtually any repeater setup due to the on-board low noise audio amplifier. A protection diode prevents damage to the board if power is connected backwards. Terminal block pins are marked more clearly. The setup menu is vastly improved. As before, no special software is needed — the device shows up as a regular COM serial port (but needs no tricky serial configuration). The new bootloader software enables field upgradeable firmware. You can load new firmware using a very simple process, no special hardware or software needed. Installing new features or bug fixes takes about five minutes. There’s no need for a separate power supply during setup and testing — power can be drawn from the computer’s USB port. Random beacon timing option – great for fox hunts! Many new or enhanced features – and even more to come! The ID-O-Matic IV is a multipurpose, microcontroller based device intended primarily for repeaters, but with other uses as well. It can also be used for beacons, fox hunt transmitters, automatic station ID and many other uses. So what are the more interesting features? There’s a programmable delay timer that announces your call sign or any other message, in Morse code at a speed and audio tone you choose. Then there are the CW keying and PTT outputs so you can attach it to a transmitter, transceiver or repeater. The COR/squelch input can be used to make a repeater controller/IDer that works the way you want it. And how about a new USB interface to connect to your shack computer, laptop or terminal for quick and easy configuration? It’s all there. Using the built-in USB interface, connect the ID-O-Matic IV to a PC (Windows, Mac, or Linux) with a free terminal emulation program such as PuTTY or Minicom and you can use the simple menu to configure the ID-O-Matic IV the way you want it. Just type in your ID message. When the COR input is activated the ID-O-Matic IV will send the message at regular intervals. And now, with the optional add-on voice ID board — record your own voice ID and use that instead of (or in addition to) Morse code! The COR input is used to control when the ID-O-Matic IV sends your programmed Morse code ID. You can use a squelch, COR, PTT or other signals from your equipment according to your needs. The built-in interface circuit and programmable signal polarity let you use either active-high or active-low input signals. You can optionally have the ID-O-Matic send a courtesy beep (or up to three Morse code characters) at the end of each transmission, and you can specify a “hang time” to keep PTT active for a brief period after the input stops. If you want the repeater to ID every so often when it’s idle, there is a beacon timer and a separate message for that too. You can, for example, have the repeater ID with its call sign while being used, and a longer message every hour or two when it’s idle. Or use Morse for the regular ID, and a voice announcement for the beacon. The ID-O-Matic IV has a real-time clock, so you can synchronize the beacon ID to the wall clock if you want. There’s a PTT watchdog timer to keep your repeater from being “hung” by stuck mic buttons or long-winded users. And, you can use the ALT MSG input to send a different ID message (and even change the courtesy beep) based on the state of an input signal – useful if, for example, your site switches to backup power, or if a link is active. Regardless of the mode used, the PTT output is active during the CW ID, with a programmable pre- and post-ID delay. Speed is variable from 5 to 40 words per minute, and the audio pitch for the CW ID and the courtesy beep is also programmable via the setup menu. All outputs are equipped with robust 2N7000 MOSFETs that can handle up to 60V at up to 200 mA to key transmitters or other loads. Improvements have been made to the original ID-O-Matic’s Morse audio output. The -IV boasts a smooth, nearly pure sine wave audio signal rather than the raspy square wave found in some ID circuits. The on-board Morse ID is filtered and fed to a passive audio mixer with volume control. An input is provided for external audio from your receiver or other source; this input has a low noise audio amplifier IC with volume control and is mixed with the Morse audio. There is a de-emphasis filter on the external audio input that can be included or left off at build time, depending on your needs. “Future-Proof” : The heart of the ID-O-Matic IV’s functionality is the firmware program that controls the processor. The controller can be upgraded with new firmware in minutes, without the need to return it for programming, swap chips or even remove it from the repeater (although a few minutes of down time is required). New features are planned for future release, giving you added capabilities at no added cost. The ID-O-Matic IV 4 from Radiodan is completely professionally built and tested. All you need to supply is an enclosure if desired. We get it out the same or next day depending on when you order.
