Hi All,
the new RRC-1258.bin file is working OK , it only needs to be uploaded in the radio box
make sure you have a CIV connection with ttl to RS232 converter between com2 on the radio box
the rest is show in picture below

I have 2.74 installed on Radio RRC. When I connect with Micro RRC Client, it connects, but no audio is heard. When I connect with the control head from the Control RRC, all is ok.

Micro RRC is working fine with other radios I have set up. Any idea why no audio from the 7100 to the Micro Client?

Yes charlie,
the audio doesn't start after you connect with RRC CLIENT (only)
untill you connect with RS-BA1 or HRD via the serial port
once that is running you have audio

Charlie,
forgot to tell to select IC-7000 in HRD and change address to 88(IC7100) instead of 70(IC7000)

That explains it. Thanks. I'll order a Serial CI-V  cable.

The cables for sale on eBay apparently have the level translation in the DB9 connector. Does COM2 on the RRC provide voltage to power that (RTS/CTS)?

I found a source for a RS232 to TTL board that has inputs for VCC, so guess I'll get that a build a cable. Thanks for the advice.

Thanks, Guy. I found the Artekit site on the internet and ordered their board. I liked how it fits in a shell for the DB9. Might take a while to come to US from Italy, but I can wait. I'll put a 5v line to it and the cable to the radio.
