Icom Interface - VK2NB - 14-08-2019

Hi to the group

Inquiring about using a Icom ic275 and ic475 for satellite use.
I have PC Sat32 as a tracking program and wondering what is the easiest way to interface the pc ( usb ports ) to the icom radios.

I have see the usb ct17 dongles ( for a single radio )  and also read about a  icom interface  that was rs232 to a box with four  3,5mm serial connections to the icom radios that is no longer available new,

So inquiring what other people have done or suggestions.

Thanks in advance

If you mean interfacing between the Icom CI/V port and  a USB port, try one of these.

You will need to download from the Icom website the appropriate driver and install it BEFORE you plug the above device in.
I don't have the link at the moment but will find it and get back. Tablets are not as flexible as a PC  Angry


Edit. Here is the link.
2nd edit...Oops, I don't know if all of the above applies to your Icom model.

Hi Nev

Thanks for that, I will try that interface and search for the drivers.

This is where I got the adaptors.

They are so cheap I got a couple of them.
