IN other words, can I buy the RCC twins and get them up and running with my IC7300...and if I want a different radio later can I use the same RCC-1258Mklls twins on the new radio (like a TS 480 with detachable head?)

I have another ham friend that will also need access to the shared remote RCC1258 at the remote end.  What does HE need to buy...another set or ONE box? 

So does the RCC1258 come with windows software that I install on my PC to go remote?  I have the radio remoted with a station 35 miles away so all access will be thru the net.

---- All RRC's are identical. You just need to rewire the red straps and jumpers plus reprogram the RRC for the different rig.

I have another ham friend that will also need access to the shared remote RCC1258 at the remote end.  What does HE need to buy...another set or ONE box? 

---- If he is sharing an existing radio RRC, then all he needs is the control RRC and not the pair. He can buy the RRC Micro PC Client (dongle) instead if using software
      control only.

So does the RCC1258 come with windows software that I install on my PC to go remote?  I have the radio remoted with a station 35 miles away so all access will be thru the net. 

---- No, it allows you to remote the radio side for audio and rig control. There are three ways to do so:
1) Using a separate hardware control head/panel, such as the TS-480
2) Using two rigs in "Twin" mode, such as the K3 and TS-590
3) Using software control on a PC over the CAT provided by the RRC. You can use any software on the market that connects via CAT, which is basically anything. No specific
    software is required or available from RemoteRig.
