Re: IC-7610 and IC-7300 Same Computer


Thanks Dave.  I only use VSPD on the laptop to create a 2nd port.

Hey folks.  I have a 7610 that works perfectly with DXLab on my desktop.  I am attempting to get a 7300 to work on the same computer.  At present, the 7300 works great on a laptop with DXLab using the main computer's database.  Just have to be careful to have one or another situation, and not both.

The main computer, 7610 uses COM Ports 4 and 5.  Set up 7300 on the laptop to also use COM Ports 4 and 5.  Using VSPD to create virtual COM 5.

+ That won't work. You should not use VSPD or any other "virtual port" software in this scenario.

A. When you connect your IC-7300 to your PC, it's device driver will create a virtual COM port for transceiver control. Configure Commander to consider your IC-7610 and IC-7610 as primary transceivers that you can choose, or configure one to serve as your Primary transceiver and one as your Secondary transceiver.

Went into Commander and set up for 2 computers.  Parameters for COM Ports are the same for both rigs.

When plugging in 7300 to USB and starting DXLab get nothing - no frequency readout etc.

Is this even possible?  I really don't want to create another set of COM Ports specifically for the 7300 using virtual software.  I believe the ICOM driver software is the same for both rigs.  Please check me on this.  I do have an old CV-17 that is not in use.

Appreciate any suggestions.
