Commander and CI-V experimentation ...


Peter Laws / N5UWY
 

It's probably never going to be integrated into my station like my
other Icoms, but I note that my (eBayed) ID-4100A dual-band radio has
a fairly substantial CI-V command set.

Can Commander (née CI-V Commander) be used for this sort of experimentation?

+ You can use Commander's Messages window to send arbitrary CI-V commands to the radio. Neither of the ID-4100A manuals I downloaded include documentation for its CI-V instruction set, so I can't recommend a supported Icom transceiver to use as a starting point.

CI-V information begins at page 10-19 of the 4100's "Advanced Manual" available here: https://www.icomjapan.com/support/manual/1634/
