Re: OPC 1443 Radio to Head Cable -Replacement by an Internet Connection ?

The IC-7000 head cable is not easily replaced because it contains the video to the head.  The IC-7100 head was designed for this by using the RemoteRig devices. Interestingly, the control data sent over the cable on the IC-7100 cable is not CI-V.  This is likely true for the IC-7000 as well.  There are several efforts to do this with the IC-7100 because there is no video data.  https://www.reddit.com/r/amateurradio/comments/l0u3an/my_ic7100_remote_head_project/.

RemoteRig is not an option for the IC-7000.  The IC-7000 is supported by Icom's RS-BA1 software which could offer similar functionality.
