SOTAbeams contest console for ICOM


Ronald Baran
 

Hello Fellow 7K-ers,

Page 135 of the manual there is a diagram of an external keypad that activates the contents of voice memories. 

Saw this: https://www.sotabeams.co.uk/contestconsole-switching-unit-for-icom-radios/   

The unite seems to be compatible with most ICOM radios but needs a patch OPC 589 for the 7000.  Anybody with experience and/or comments about this console?

Punching the F1,  CQ memory started to get old during Illinois QSO Party.  Seldom work SSB so this feature certainly saved my voice.

73,
