Re: Digital Modes and CAT on IC7000

Kevin Grantham

There are some products similar to the Signalink that provide more connections to the radio. For example, the West Mountain Radio Rigblaster Advantage - with a single USB - provides the audio, CI-V (CAT), RTTY and Key connections.

Otherwise you use the Signalink for audio and a separate serial port for CI-V.

You can use a cheap sound card interface but it will not key the radio via VOX and won’t provide isolation against ground hum. Having said that, I use CI-V commands to key and unkey.

There is some programming software for programming memories. Don’t know if there is software for Linux.
