As the orginal separation cables from ICOM, OPC-581 and OPC-587 is no longer in production and very difficult to find. DM5AL has made a separation kit which works with the much cheaper RJ45 CAT-6 cables instead. This kit will of course also work with Remoterig. The only difference is that the red strap wires need be configured in different positions compared to when using the ICOM cables,
There is one pcb which is attached to the IC-706 radio body, and another which is attached to the Front panel.
The adapters is available at ebay or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
