I don't plan to share a computer's serial port, so not sure it's an issue, but I'll report if and when I do this.  The unofficial IC-7000 faq that I found says this should work.  we'll see.

Please report to group whether or not the Y connector works.

I don't think it will work.  But the reason may have more to do with sharing a COM port, which does not work and requires the use of a virtual serial port.

I believe you can "wire OR" the CI-V port, i.e., use a commercial 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo "Y" cable.

Subject: [IC-7000] Screwdriver Antenna Controller

I'm looking to use a Tarheel antenna with my ic-7000 and need an antenna controller. What I'd like, ideally, is a fully automatic controller that uses the radio's tuner button. I don't want separate control heads for the controller that I need to deal with.

The TurboTuner -2 fits the bill, but in addition to using the tuner connector on the radio,most also uses the CI-V port, which I'd prefer to keep free for rig control.

Is anyone aware of an automatic antenna controller that works off the radio's tuner controls but doesn't use the CI-V port?
