Re: IC-7000 First Time Use

You can buy the interface cable for the Signalink for the IC7000. Direct connection to the data port.

For the CI-V, the CT-17 isn’t necessary unless you want to use the DB25 connector to connect to your computer.

You can use the RT Systems cable to connect the CI-V to your computer too using the USB interface.


For cable connections go to the ICOM site and download the manual.

Greetings, I recently acquired a used IC-7000 in good condition. I just ordered the RT Systems software and cable for memory programming. 


I also have the CT-17 CI-V unit without cables and a USB type Signalink. I believe I need these for CAT control and digital work but I'm unsure how they should be connected. Is there a site showing how these components should be interconnected to the radio?
